About Band

Firstly take two musicians with a scary seventy years experience between them, an acoustic guitar, a bunch of harmonica’s and a superb lead vocalist. Combine those elements with an extensive catalogue of covers and an ever-expanding list of original songs and you have the unique sound of Across The Border.

 

It all started at the 2008 Capel Music Festival in Surrey when David asked Kim to guest on a couple of numbers in his set. What started as a one-off became a meeting of musical minds. A series of short sets at various venues and the wonderful acoustic Thursday nights at the Emerald Club in Crawley convinced the pair that the partnership had potential.

 

The next step came at Kim’s 51st birthday party when David borrowed Kim’s guitar for some impromptu numbers, broke a string, took the guitar home to mend and promptly wrote his first ever song.

 

Then in May 2009 the pair played their first paid gig for a conference at the Royal Surrey Hospital and decided that the partnership should be formalised and that they should find a band name. As anyone who has tried that will understand, arguments and long sulks usually follow but, amazingly, both had ‘Across The Border’ on their list and so on the 6th June 2009 the band was born. Sometimes things are just meant to be.

 

It didn’t take long for Kim to start wheeling out his lyrics for David to apply his skills to and at the same time rehearse their take on an increasingly extensive list of covers.

 

Since then it’s been constant gigs and appearances with the highlight of 2009 being a short tour in the west of .
