Alchemista is a Coventry-based five-piece band playing original songs in a style best described as melodic rock. Caroline Luxton-White (lead vocals), Pete Garelick (Guitar and harmony vocals), Paul Jayes (Piano and Guitar), Mark Nisbet (Bass, 2015-19, playing on this track) and Colin Halliwell (Drums) were brought together through their passion for well-crafted songs with big choruses, hooky grooves, and poetic lyrics.
Alchemista was originally formed with a family nucleus of partners Caroline and Colin with brother Ray Halliwell on guitar. Sadly, Ray suddenly died in 2015 but a one-off advert for his replacement magically attracted a full band, including bass and keyboards. A new and improved Alchemista was soon relaunched.
Who do we sound like? Some say we sound a bit like Fleetwood Mac – maybe we do. But we aim to offer an eclectic mix of music with a quintessential ingredient.
