The Band

Andy Gooding

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

Bass Guitar

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

Drums & Percussion

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.
