Dean England (Guitar) - Born in Wakefield in December of 1986, Dean was brought up around music mainly because of his parents and their musical influences. At the age of 13, he borrowed a guitar from his dad who told him that if he managed to learn 15 chords, he would buy Dean his first guitar. Dean did that and earned his guitar, and after a few weeks he couldn’t put it down.Later, Dean began to write music with his brother James, they teamed up with some friends and formed a band called INAMBA. The band were together for 10 years, playing all over the UK. They got themselves a record deal and released a record. Unfortunately though it wasn’t to last and they split last year due to musical differences. Dean was the last member to join the band and hopes this may be the start of a new chapter in his musical career.
