GILCHRIST were initially formed by Gordon Anthoney, Gary Fraser & Shane Gorman a few years ago. Having all played in a number of serious bands over the years trying to “hit the big time”, their main objective was to have fun while writing and recording songs in Gordon's home studio. At the same time they wanted to learn more about recording and music production. It wasn’t until Gordon met bass player Kenny Donald in 2013 that the idea arose of getting together for jam sessions. These kick started the whole process of getting a live band together again. Shane, who was their original drummer, left the band to take up work offshore and it wasn’t until September 2013 that Derek Buglass joined the band and the first Gilchrist line up was in place with Gary on vocals, Gordon on guitar, Kenny on bass and Derek on drums. They went to work straight away on recording the debut album ‘Funky Philosophy' which is due to be released shortly via CD Baby and will be available to download on itunes and various other sites. Although Brandon Marchant joined the band as second guitarist shortly thereafter, he has recently left the band as he's due to return to Canada in the near future. The band have recently been joined on Trombone and backing vocals by Annabel Bloomfield.
