Ethan & The Reformation

Ethan & The Reformation are a five-piece Psych Rock band from Bury/Manchester, formed in late 2015. Frontman/Rhythm Guitarist Ethan Davies met and struck up a friendship with Lead Guitarist Mick Mac in July 2013, whilst both performing at Wonderwall Festival in Flensburg, Germany – a bill that was topped by Jefferson Airplane. Two years passed before another chance meeting between the pair at Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia. The two met a week or so later at Mick’s home, where they began to develop some ideas that Ethan had been working on.

After a handful of meetings, they had demoed four tracks with which they approached bassist James Cordeiro and drummer Thomas Oliver Gorton. Ethan had known the pair from around Manchester and moved quickly to recruit the pair. The line-up was completed with the addition of Jack Wakeman on keys.
