Dane Lloyd and Taylor Jones' original songs enthusiastically show the band's different faces. "Brightest Creatures" is their latest single, with a put-your-hands-in-the-air pulse that will take you on a late-night joyride. "My Ghost" is darker and more raw, calling upon a deep, powerful soul sound. Then "Right Track" is different than the first two, simply sweet and low.
If you're not already intrigued, then you need to hear their cover of Elvis' "Burnin' Love" imagined as a ballad. They're not just creative and talented, they also know the ins and out of music, which goes a long way.
With a charismatic stage presence, Lloyd and Jones show their appreciation and enthusiasm for their music, especially through their acoustic performances. Just give them three instruments: two guitars and a drum--four if you count the harmonica--and a pair of resounding vocals, and Into the Ark will create something magical and unique.
Since meeting at a charity concert, the duo have traveled around the world writing, playing and learning about music. They toured with London-based band Eliza and the Bear and appeared on television with The Voice, but Lloyd and Jones haven't lost the spirit and determination of the two guys who bought a van to travel the country, playing music.
And isn't that the dream?
