Lightscape are a 5 Piece Anthemic rock band from Norwich, who’s style and influence are vast, with an electric take on what they think a rock band in today’s day and age should sound like.
Forming early 2016, the band started with Brothers Sam (guitar) and James Nichol (Drums) searching for the right people to bring the sound in their heads to life. After much trial and error, and almost giving up, they came across singer Will Overton which really got things moving, followed swiftly by Ben Ashcroft on Guitar and Christy Bullen on Bass. Unsigned, self managed and self funded, the band have gigged with Black Stone Cherry, Lonely the Brave, Fort Hope, The Treatment, As Lions + many more with 2 Ep’s under their belt recorded by Oz Craggs (Mallory Knox/ Feed The Rhino)
‘For Present For Past’ and most recent release ‘Circles’ have proven to be a real hit, having over 100,000 plays on Spotify for one track alone!

Let’s see what Sam Nichol has to say about Vocalzone!
“When on Tour, you never know when illness or a sore throat will strike, thanks to Vocalzone we can relax and perform to the best of our ability! Vocalzone has become as useful for our vocals as a guitarist carrying a spare set of strings.”
