Galahad are an English Progressive Rock band formed in 1985.

Over the years they have played hundreds of shows all over the UK, Europe and America releasing nine studio albums, plus various rarity, offshoot albums and numerous live albums/DVDs/EPs along the way.

The band have constantly evolved over the years soaking up many different influences. Their last three studio albums ‘Empires Never Last’, ‘Battle Scars’ and ‘Beyond the Realms of Euphoria’ have taken them towards a heavier, more muscular direction combined with a liberal use of more groove/dance orientated beats creating a unique modern sound whilst retaining occasional nods to their ‘Progressive’ roots.

2015 saw the 30th anniversary of the band which is celebrated by the release of ‘When Worlds Collide’ a double CD retrospective, which includes ten re-recorded versions of older tracks some dating back as 1985.

2017 sees the band release ‘Quiet Storms’ which shows a more pastoral, mellow side to the band. However the band will also release a full on prog/rock album ‘Seas of Change’ towards the end of the year which, in true ‘Prog’ tradition, contains just one long form piece of music which will be performed in some form at all the planned live shows for 2018.

Tiger Moth Tales is essentially the brain child of nottinghamshire based musician and writer Peter Jones, who has been involved in the music industry performing around the UK and recording his own material since the late 90s.
Pete was born on October 6th 1980. At fifteen months Pete lost his sight due to Retinoblastoma. From an early age he was into all things musical and at the age of four had his first piano.
Pete studied music and music technology and performed in bands singing and playing jazz, swing, rock and classical pieces.
On leaving school in 1999 he formed the successful duo ‘2 to Go’ with friend and vocalist Emma Paine. Over the next ten years they became one of the most successful duos on the circuit performing at clubs and corporate events around the UK and abroad. During that time they were finalists in the BBC’s Star For A Night in 2001 and ITV’s ‘The X Factor’ in 2004. They went on to appear in the National Arena X Factor Tour which followed in 2005.
At the beginning of 2013, Pete started work on a new project. This took the form of a concept album, and it was the first progressive music he had written since he was a teenager.
This breath taking new album is a departure from Pete Jones’ previous output, but also a return to the music of his youth and the free form ideas which used to fuel his compositions as a child. Anyone who has fond memories of their childhood will appreciate the feelings and emotions captured in this fresh, yet timeless piece of writing. Cocoon is a new and stunning addition to the Progressive music world, and there is more to come from Tiger Moth Tales. Pete Jones has already returned to the studio with new ideas. He will be previewing some of this new material at his gig at The Talking Heads on 29/10/17
