Epuldugger are a Woking and Guildford based band that got together through old musical collaborations, combined with a bit of fate along the way during 2004. Their sound can be described as raw, edgy and bluesy, partly due to their 3 piece set up, but also down to the use of airy open guitar tunings, powerful bass and drum work and a fresh approach to the song writing and arrangement. Listen out for their mellow EP title track ‘Light My Way’ or the more upbeat grittier sound of ‘Every Day From Now’ and ‘Time Passes By’.
The band consists of Billy Irvine on guitar / vocals, Vic Cox on bass / backing vocals and Omar Hayes on drums / percussion.
Billy spent much of the late nineties with a band called ‘Wiser’ playing locally and around London venues. After the band folded he spent most of his time writing the material that would form the backbone of the Epuldugger set.
Vic Cox played with local band ‘Wildwood’ through the majority of the late nineties and early 2001/2002, with whom he played at Guilfest in the earlier days. After playing sessions for various bands, he hooked up with Billy to work on the Epuldugger project.
Omar Hayes played with ‘Orphic Soup’ during the mid nineties and toured extensively, playing some big venues with some top bands along the way. He has done some work with ‘The Delta Sun’ recently and came on board with Epuldugger in late 2004.
