aussie nick hails from Melbourne Australia where he grew up as a guitar player in the typical Aussie rough and tumble pub scene that has produced legendary Oz acts like AC/DC, Cold Chisel, The Angels and Keith Urban. He has travelled far and wide playing across Australia's southern states in a variety of acts, most notably with his highly successful 70's glam band "Lionel Loves Vinyl". He has also done his stint in the pit in musical theatre, donned his cap on TV on the Bert Newton Show with blues rockers Barrelhouse and played his fair share of festivals and corporate gigs. In recent years he has hauled his array of Nash, Fender, Gibson, Maton and Gretsch guitars across the globe playing in Singapore, Thailand, Paris, Nashville, Memphis and now the UK. Nick has a strong pedigree in music following in the footsteps of Uncle and Liverpool Cavern legend Tony Morris and Virgin recording artist and cousin Hannah Morris. Aussie Nick now blends his love of rock and country together in Wrecking Ball, the band he started with Mark Hills. Passionate about the sound they create, he spends his time mainly on arranging, writing, producing, sound and of course chasing that ever elusive killer guitar tone.

Andrew began playing the drums at the tender age of 11, playing all the way though his teens in everything from jazz orchestras, rock bands, function bands, covers bands and even the town brass band in his native Scarborough, Yorkshire. In fact as a teenager he got to play some of the biggest venues in the country including the Royal Albert Hall and National Festival Hall. After finishing university he moved to London, and then onto St. Albans, where career pressures meant musical pursuits became more project based, but included originals and cover bands, as well as playing and singing in a Guitar Duo for a time. A career change and a move to Somerset in 2011 meant that Andrew was finally able to commit to a more long term project and since then he has played in a couple of local covers bands before joining Wrecking Ball, first for a dep'ing stint in 2016, and now again in 2017. On the gear front, Andrew uses Gretsch Drums and Sabian cymbals.
