Secret Genius is an exciting 5-piece Milton Keynes based Pop, Rock and Contemporary covers band with a great female singer.
Formed in 2007, (our 10th Anniversary was in 2017) we play an energetic and very varied set of different styles and genres of well-known pop rock and contemporary covers dating from the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s right up to the recent charts ranging from Pop and Classic Rock favourites through to a little bit of Country and also a selection of more Contemporary and Indie styles from the 1990’s and 2000’s and give them our own individual spin and high energy treatment.
Secret Genius comprises Claire, our talented and brilliant lead singer, Jamie also on some of the lead vocals and duets plus also playing drums, two fantastic guitarists who joined our line-up in 2016 in the form of Nick Morris and Richard Ashby, both highly skilled musicians with a wealth of experience, and Nick holding down the bottom end on bass.
We provide exiting live music to suit most age groups and tastes from our large range of material for pubs, clubs, parties, open air festivals and private functions of all sorts.
Claire Lead vocals & backing vocals
The band is fronted by Claire, a talented singer with a fantastic and unique voice and a wild sense of dress, often blending punk with rock chic in her own very funky style.
Jamie Drums & vocals
Jamie, our drummer, shares some of the vocals and has an interesting collection of T-shirts together with a talent for keeping the party on the dance floor.
Wayne Lead and rhythm guitar
The latest addition to our line-up is Wayne who joined us in September 2018. Wayne has loads of live experience playing with local bands and is a great addition to the band. Incredibly versatile and a different style and sound to Richard and blending with him to enable the band to play a much bigger range of music styles. Wayne also brings a mean new look and a bit of attitude to the band – Tattoos and stuff – wow, that’s cool.
Richard Lead and rhythm guitar
Richard Ashby joined the band in 2016 and adds that essential heavier rock and overall depth to the band’s overall sound. An exceptional lead guitarist, having played in several local bands around Northamptonshire for many years, he brings his extensive experience and talent to bear in counter-balancing Nick’s lighter contemporary style, giving the band the ability to perform both modern lighter edgier songs and heavier rock classics.
Nick Bass guitar & occasional backing vocals
Nick (The Bass) plays Bass and keeps the bottom end solid.
Our diverse and eclectic set of songs includes numbers from very different music genres, including:- Free, Stealers Wheel, The Kinks and The Eagles from the 60’s and 70’s to Pink, Paramore, Eurythmics, The Killers, Scissor Sisters, The Kaiser Chiefs, Adele, Amy Winehouse, Foo Fighters, Lourde, One Republic, Greenday, The Arctic Monkeys, Pulp, Jimmy Eat World and many more.
