For years has Gary Hughes toyed with the idea of bringing even more power and width into the TEN live sound. To this end, TEN are proud to announce the arrival of two new members in the shape of guitar players Dann Rosingana and Steve Grocott. They are two highly skilled individuals and the aim is to bring twin lead guitar back into play whilst not detracting from the solid and powerful backdrop which is trademark TEN. Gary commented yesterday "The arrival of Dann and Steve will enable the band to play more of the layers in Ten's studio sound live on stage."
Dann Rosingana: Dann is a very gifted guitar player with a very bluesy edge. Combining speed and melody perfectly in his solo work. He was born Barrow-in-Furness Cumbria, and has been playing guitar since the age of 10. Dann also plays keyboards and sings. His previous Bands include: Shellshocked, A2Z, Hysteria and Yorkshire based club band, Jagged Edge.
Steve Grocott: Steve is an incredibly versatile guitar player. Combining stunning technical ability with harmony and melody. Creating light and shade in breathtaking abundance with his solo work. Steve hails from Staffordshire and has been playing guitar since the age of 12. His previous bands include AOR band Sevendayz.
ALBION is the first of the 2 new albums to feature lead guitar work by Dann and Steve, while Ten veteran, the formidable John Halliwell, once again provides the power guitar backdrop and both will share the lead duties and twin together to bring a new dimension to the solo aspect of Ten live sound. Beginning with the October UK appearance at Firefest, Ten will emerge as a new look 7 piece, for the first time featuring the triple guitar attack that will bring a new dimension to the established British Melodic Rock giants.
