“When we hear Otis Redding sing, it transport us to another realm. You can feel the pain, the passion and the soul in it. Music is the only thing that really gives us this feeling”.

Meet Into The Ark, a Welsh duo who came to be over bonding of their love for writing and passion for gigging. Hailing from Blackwood in South Wales, Taylor Jones was just 14 when he met 18 year old, Dane Lloyd; originally solo performers, it wasn’t long before the pair were bonding and blending and Into The Ark was born.

A 4-track EP and YouTube followed (with some travelling in between to Australia and Tunisia) and the pair were ready to hit the road and promote their unique harmonies and poignant lyrics in the “old school” style of a van, a mattress, their guitars and a little help from “The Bank Of Mum and Dad”, of course . . .

Into The Ark are currently on tour in Scotland, but have gigs coming up in Inverness, Edinburgh and Dundee, before coming to Glasgow for The Tenement Trail on Saturday 3rd October 2015.
