The 95th

The 95th were born out of the late 2000’s eclectic Aberystwyth University music scene where playing gigs in a dirty pub or decadent hotel was considered standard fair. When drummer Jason Davidson returned to the seaside town to complete a masters degree he immediately wanted to find a new band. As fate would have it songwriter James Peate happened to be looking for a drummer, and mutual friends brought the two together. Although Jason was rooted firmly in blues rock and Peate in the more alternative scene the pairs musical backgrounds collided to create a unique sound. Although the bands popularity on the Aber scene steadily grew when the members finished their respective courses they all went their separate ways leaving the band as a happy memory.
But when Davidson returned from Spain in late 2013 Peate was the first to contact him with a favour. He was already playing gigs solo and wanted to start a new project, would he be interested? To this new line-up Peate brought seasoned lead guitarist Peter Roch. The threesome clicked immediately with a gig lined up at Birmingham’s Actress and Bishop only a few weeks later. It became obvious from the start that this new line-up was inherently different and had its own unique sound, the old material from Aber just wouldn’t do.
Each member brought their own influences and nuances to new material which began to develop and the members played together more. Acoustic gigs in London at Acklam market honed the bands ability, whilst electric gigs in Camden’s famous Dublin Castle honed the bands live show. The summer of 2014 brought a series of successful festival performances In Stafford, Lichfield which culminated in being invited to open for Jacqui Abbott and Paul Heaton at Heaton’s Kings Arms pub in Salford. The performance went down a storm and showcased what the band do best, performing live. As the bands repertoire and reputation grows 2015 looks like becoming an exciting year for The 95th
James Peate (Vocals, Guitar, Mandolin): Instrumental in the writing of the songs of The 95th, Peate’s song writing influences stem from his eclectic music taste. With influences ranging from Alt Rock masters REM to Russian band Kino as well more contemporary acts like Metric, Peate blends these varying styles to create The 95th trademark Alternative Rock sound.
Peter Roch (Guitar, Vocals, Piano): Pete. With influences ranging from Radiohead and Jeff Buckley to BB King, Roch tries to bring something different to each song, refining his sound as the band has progressed to bring unique overtones to the bands arrangements. Aside from playing, Roch is heavily involved in the promotion of live music, working with music festivals (most recently bringing Oxjam to Stafford for the first time), and established venues to push new and emerging music.
Jason Davidson (Drums, Percussion): Davidson’s drumming is firmly influenced by his blues rock upbringing. Davidson has played in varied acts playing anything from folk, pop, rock and punk. His influences are eclectic ranging from Led Zeppelin’s John Bonham to Billy Braggs Luke Bullen. His driving rhythms and explosive rolls help provide the band with the most solid of foundations.
