British India introduce new guitarist Jack Tosi when they tour in October-November.
The future looks clear for Aussie rockers British India as they return from hiatus for an east-coast tour and to introduce their new guitarist Jack Tosi.
Having farewelled original guitarist Nic Wilson, British India put new recruit Jac - an old school friend of the band - through his paces on the upcoming tour this October and November, which includes both headline shows and festival slots.
A chance meeting between old friends - drummer Matt O’Gorman and guitarist Jack Tosi - turned out to be fortuitous. Matt was on the hunt for a guitarist, and Jack was looking to play once again, it seemed a perfect opportunity. A jam session was arranged, and by the session’s end, Jack was in the band. He was the one and only guitarist British India had auditioned.
"It’s no exaggeration to say that Nic was the only guitarist we had ever played with," frontman Declan Melia says.
"So that’s why we were surprised when it all gelled so easily with Jack. We were halfway through the second song when I turned to Matt and smiled like, ‘this is going to work’, that kid can play a guitar man!'"
On the upcoming tour, British India will be armed with tracks from their entire discography of Australian live favourites like 'Vanilla', 'I Can Make You Love Me' and 'Suddenly'.
