The Gyro Q&A

Your name: 
Derek Lewis.

South east London.

Name of band: 
The Gyro.

Who is in your band? 
Siobhan (vocals), Ben (drums), Dario (guitar) and Derek (bass, lyricist).

How would you describe yourselves and your music? 
The Gyro is a funk alternative band that plays in sub-genres of funk; funk rock, soul funk, and acoustic funk.

Who are your main influences musically? 
We like bands that play in sub genres like: Red Hot Chili Peppers, Parliament Funkadelic, N.E.R.D

What do you hope to achieve in music? 
Since releasing our debut album 'Naked n Xposed', we're hoping to start touring soon. We also want to record and release another album called 'No Money Man', late 2015.

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why? 
Releasing our debut album 'Naked n Xposed' has been a great highlight, as the first album is always the hardest to make.

And what’s the moment you want to forget? 
Losing our cellist Lily. She left for personal reasons. She gave the band a wonderful sound. The cello really works with our music.

The first song written and released by The Gyro -'Got It All'
