Sam Irvine
Alto Sax

1. What instrument do you play and how long have you been playing with Tinderbox?
Saxophone(s)! 5 years later this year.

2. What is your first musical memory?
Listening to Moby with headphones on the train.

3. Which record / band rocks your world at the moment?
 The Olllam (self titled album).

4. What’s your favourite Tinderbox memory or gig?
 A rehearsal of Sufjan Stevens’ song, ‘Age of Adz’, around two years ago gave me goosebumps. The energy and concentration of each player came together so well, and it was a very powerful experience.
