It Begins With...

It Begins With...

Originally formed in 2010 by Liam Wood, the first line up played only a single show before a health condition sidelined Liam for 12+ months which eventually lead to the other members joining new projects to keep their musical careers moving forward. In late 2011 Liam Wood, still unable to perform live on a regular basis was contacted by Cameron O'Neil, the drummer of Liam's first ever band, "N.G." formed when the guys were only 11 years old. The two decided to get to work on some of Liam's old tracks, refining and building upon the sound that can be heard now on the bands latest recordings.

In 2016 Michael Tsakmakis joined the line up on bass and in 2017 Mark Sanders completed the sound on lead guitar. It Begins With... are currently recording an EP independently and will look to start gigging in the near future.
