Poets were conceived in the late summer of 2009. Singer/Songwriter Stephen Rudd was bored with playing solo acoustic gigs around pubs and needed other musicians to lend colour and dynamics to the songs he’d written. Enter drummer Phil Sharlott, guitarist Mark de Manbey and bassist Mark Dolphin. The result of this union is a collection of honest, memorable and infectious songs. A melodic collision of rock & pop, driving rhythms and soaring melodies delivered with soul, passion and self-belief. Fallen Poets debut album "The Sea Will Remain" is due for release end 2010.
