ABOUT THE BAND
Chatonda "Chats" Ridley
Chats is the bass player for Megan Black. He has been playing bass since he was 16 in Malawi, Africa. He grew up playing punk and traditional Malawian music but his musical taste quickly broadened when he arrived in Scotland and he started playing with more people and bands. From ceilidh to jazz and everything in between he adopted bits and pieces from all of these styles. Chats said; "I like to think I can support and fit in with most musical styles... and if I can't fit in, I will soon!"
Paul has been playing guitar in Megan's band for the past year. He picked up his first guitar when he was 16 years old and has been playing in and out of bands ever since. He loves anything from acoustic folk to rock 'n' roll, blues, pop and punk. He said; "I enjoy supporting Megan with her own music and being inspired from the other amazing artists in the band".
Connor is the drummer in Megan's band. He has been making noise behind the kit since he was about three and started playing anything he could figure out by ear. He started gigging when he was 15 in local venues and has been fortunate enough to have played a vast amount of venues over the last four to five years spanning from Inverness down to Sheffield. He is also a talented songwriter exploring various genres.
