The final original member of The Difference is Tom. Hailing from Thatcham, Tom started out as the band’s bassist. It became quickly apparent that Tom had a talent for every musical instrument, and he soon became a regular feature playing lead guitar on a number of songs. After the most recent personnel shift, Tom has begun playing guitar, and has struck up a fantastic relationship with Phil Eves, resulting in mesmerising dual guitar solos and powerful riffs beginning to creep into many songs. Tom also brings a tech head to the band, as a prospective student on the prestigious Tonmeister course at the University of Surrey. With his ability, the band has been able to produce their sound to the highest standard.

Another original member of the band, Phil joined the band as the lead guitarist. He quickly struck up a fantastic relationship with singer Kieran Derwin and the chemistry between frontman and guitarist is still plain to see. Drawing inspiration from Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits, Phil has grown into an accomplished guitarist and also provides backing vocals to many songs.

Welcoming our new bassist Pete. Our very own Ron Weasley lookalike is studying at Winchester University with Ben Webb and has settled in very quickly. Drawing influence from bands like the red hot chili Peppers, he is the perfect fit for the band. With facial hair that even the most ardent Movember participant would dream of and the chat to go with it, we are excited to be working with our first natural bassist!

David showed his incredible talent in a number of ways. As the youngest member of The Difference, David brought an added enthusiasm, as well as a vast amount of musical knowledge. He is capable of stepping onto any instrument and luckily when he’s back from university he still plays the odd gig!.
