Michael Ready

1.  What instrument do you play and how long have you been playing with Tinderbox?
I play the flute and I’ve been playing with Tinderbox for around 3 years.

What is your first musical memory?
My first musical memory would be playing recorder in a talent show! I must have been about 7 or 8 and I was shaking I was so nervous.

Which record / band rocks your world at the moment?
Jethro Tull. Classic. Plus the jazz flute is just great.

. What’s your favourite Tinderbox memory or gig?
The first gig I did with Tinderbox was at the Kelburn Music Festival and I really remember the atmosphere, it was amazing.

. What’s your fave track on the album?
Quetzalcoatl. Just for the name! No, it’s a good piece of music and I love the way it builds up, very bouncy.
Thanks Michael! Check back here for a chance to get to know some of the other faces behind Tinderbox, before we release our debut album (4th June 2017).
