Your Fiction Tree Performers

Andy Gooding

Vocals & Guitar

Andy has played the local circuit for many years with various acts and bands including Walking Dynamite, Stiff Upper Lip and Red Kite Drift among others, and is most regularly seen wielding a 12 string with popular local duo Smoothmonkey. Andy has always been a song writer and the Fiction Tree songs are based on work that Andy has created over the years and with new arrangements and new material, these songs have come to life.

Damian Walsh


Damian will be well-known to live music fans around the area as he has provided Bass-duties for some of the most popular local acts including Funky Junction & Honeypark for many years. Now though it’s time for Damian to contribute his melodic and fluid bass style to the Fiction Tree sound, ensuring that this new exciting music is firmly rooted in both rhythm and feel.

Shaun Lyndon-Smith


Shaun has played drums, cajon and percussion for several acts around the Chichester and Bognor Regis area including way back in the late 1990s/early 2000s when he also played in a band with Andy which performed at Rox On The Prom and more recently with Red Kite Drift. Shaun’s enthusiasm for music and performing has been a key driving force in the growth of Fiction Tree.

Carrie Horner


Carrie can be seen regularly in the local area as a solo singer and with duo Vintage Candy. With a background in musical theatre and extensive experience as a performer, we are excited to have Carrie perform with us at our live show.

Richard Gooding

Guitar & Backing Vocals

Rich has been playing guitar for many years and, apart from being Andy’s brother and therefore a longtime guitar partner to jam with, has often depped with acts that Andy’s been involved with around the local area. Bringing additional vocals and electric guitar with some great riffing and lead lines, Rich has proved a valuable asset to generating the full band sound for Fiction Tree’s live show.

Dr Stephen Cass has been a drummer, percussionist, and vocalist for over 40 years. He has toured and performed in over twenty-five countries and at venues ranging from The Montreux Jazz Festival and Carnegie Hall to CBGB’s and The Troubadour.
