Members: Jacob Powell / Gabriel Penteado / Ryan Stephenson
Jacob, Gabriel and Ryan all met whilst studying at music school together in London back in 2015, bonding over their passion for rock music. Having been unable to form a permanent band after their studies, due to various commitments, the group remained in limbo. Recently, they decided to embark on a side project, Clockwork Boy, having released their debut single "Tired", in October of 2018. The trio take their influences from various bands, combining the new and the old to create a hard hitting, dynamic sound.
