ROCK ON! This Week's Sound Bites...5/3/18

By Danny Coleman

originally published: 05/04/2018

"Blackwood is in a village in South Wales," explains Welsh duo, Into The Ark as they discussed their humble beginnings, travels, aspirations and eventual successes prior to their show on May 4 in Englewood,NJ at the Bergen PAC as openers for their mentor turned friend, Tom Jones. 

Dane Lloyd and Taylor Jones met at a rugby club charity event and quickly struck up a friendship. Using their commonality of music, the duo decided that they needed to see the globe, play music and create an identity. "We were just in Tunisia about three years ago, playing covers and things to try and make a bit of money and travel the world," explained Dane. "We knew we wanted to do original music and we knew that we needed a name as well to follow with. We were picking a load of names and that's the one that stuck really. Taylor's mother said we were clever because there's two of us and it's two by two but I can't lie; that's not the reason that we picked it."

Deftly leaving the band name behind, they moved on to a different subject; the nuts and bolts of their wander lust. "The main thing was traveling. We knew that we wanted to backpack and play music. Australia, Tunisia, it didn't matter where we really started, it was just more about seeing the world and playing music. The best thing about it was the busking. A lot of our friends said not to busk at night because it was dangerous in Kings Prosper and we really didn't listen to them and it wound up being one of the best places we busked. We wound up making the most money and everybody was really drunk and stripping on the streets and just doing crazy things, it was quite eventful."

Ah but the allure of opportunity quickly engulfed them and wanting to ultimately be absorbed by a label, they returned to the UK and once there, things began to develop. One of those,"Things" was a spot on the UK version of, "The Voice." "After leaving Tunisia, we were signed to a publishing deal with Warner Chapell;  as writers. We were writing music and then started touring the UK and a bit of Europe and we got so far with intent to success that by the time it hit a standstill after two years; we were really running out of funds and we were like kind of at the last resort as far as continuing music or not. Then we were asked to do the show and seriously we were like, nah no way do we want to do this. Then they gave us a bit of background of what type of artists are on the show and it was really credible and we had a lot of freedom of what music we sang and picked and basically the prize of the show was a record deal which obviously that's always what we'd been aiming for, so we decided to go for it in the end and at first we thought, well even if we make it to the first round on TV that it would help us with an audience and getting bigger shows and then we kind of went, well, to each their own every week and it kind of shocked us but that's a good thing."

Being one of the finalists in the competition and having Tom Jones as a vocal coach doesn't hurt either. This illuminated the path which lead to their recording an EP called, "Valencia EP," which is due for release on June 22 via Blackwood Records. "It's a five song EP and we also just signed a record deal earlier this year and we've started our first full length, so we are working on that now. We recorded it like in the 60's, had a lot of fun with it and recorded most of it in one take. It was more about having some fun with the artsy side of us before we start doing more mainstream stuff we guess."

The relationship forged with Jones during their run on television has paid huge dividends; a spot as openers on his North American tour. "Tom Jones is amazing, he is such a nice guy," they chimed in unison. "We are both from similar valleys in Wales so all of our mannerisms are very alike and we hit it off from the start. Watching him perform every night allowed us to learn how to be on stage and he has really looked after us; it's been amazing. Some of the shows we've been doing are 18,000 people and we've never done anything like that before," and what was that like; stepping on stage in front of that many cheering faces for the first time? "The first time it was terrifying, absolutely terrifying," they responded with a laugh as big as their likable personalities. "We popped a tire on the way to the show in the van and we remember being glad it happened in the end because we were so focused on fixing the van and getting to the gig that when we were on stage, it kind of took a bit of the fear away."

Showing a bit of their youthful exuberance, they recounted the moment when the call came that Jones wanted to make them an offer."We were shocked really. We had talked about it hypothetically, like; what if he takes us on tour with him? When it happened it blew our minds but it didn't feel real until we were actually on stage in front of that many people."

Besides their opening set, they get a bit of a bonus, something they have no qualms about sharing; on the sly of course. "Yes, we do like three songs with him a night but we're not sure if that's a secret; ah go ahead and tell them, let's put it out there anyway (Laughs)."

So what can those attending the Bergen PAC expect from this talented duo? "We'll be on the road about five weeks, around 20 shows. The Englewood show will be our second show so there will probably be a bit of nerves to start with (Laughs) but music wise, it's very vocal driven like Simon and Garfunkle harmonies, singer songwriter songs as well as some soulful acoustic; a mix of everything to be fair."

Into the Ark will be very busy this summer. After this tour with Jones and the continuation of crafting their debut album, they will be hitting the UK festival circuit. To find out ticket information or more about the band itself; please visit
