This is our debut single – Wait For The Storm – a melancholic acoustic song (flute, guitar, bass, keyboard, drums and vocals). Its about both my own experience of Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, and my dad’s experience of a very serious illness recently. It’s dedicated to my dad.

We are donating all of our royalties from online sales of this track this year to Save The Children and Ehlers-Danlos Support UK (50:50 to each).

I hope you like it. If you do, and feedback, likes, support, sharing, itunes ratings or reviews, etc, would be enormously appreciated.

Best wishes,


Hats Off Gentlemen It’s Adequate


Thanks so much to Music Review Unsigned for this incredibly supportive review of wait for the storm:-

“Wait for the storm”, the debut single by London based group, Hat’s off gentlemen it’s adequate, can only be described as a beautifully melodic and heart felt piece of music. The prevalent and haunting flute on “Wait for the storm” creates a mix of melancholy and beauty, which draws a sense of peace and tranquillity not often found in music.

The band, consists of multi instrumentalist Malcolm and one or more of, Flautist Kathryn Thomas, bass player Mark Gatland, Rudy Roo on percussion and Ibon Ibon on guitar.

The British group who cite influences such as Pink Floyd, Hendrix and Bob Dylan have shared a rich musical history together. Both Malcolm and Kathryn have been featured together performing on BBC Radio 3 and Mark and Malcolm have been playing together since school, so it’s very evident from listening to “Wait for the storm” and other tracks that they have an excellent sense of musical chemistry that I’m sure will stand to the group in making them a huge name on the British music scene.

Hat’s off regulary play at leading music venues in London such as Camden Rock, The Water Rats, The Fiddler’s Elbow and also at street events and charity gigs.

The track, which has already received huge press coverage and critical acclaim was released in aid of Save the children and Ehlers-Danlos support UK. Elhers-Danlos Syndrome is a connective tissue disorder and stems genetically from a deficiency in collagen and research shows it occurs in 1 in 5000 people.

So don’t “Wait” to download this amazing piece of music. I’m tipping my Hat to the guys from London and giving them a more than adequate 6/6.
