Bryn has called Bristol his home for 12 years now after studying music here in this fair city’s university. He currently works as a wine importer and enjoys playing rugby.
His business and philanthropic interests are wide, varied and incredibly successful, with property, emerging technology and even rumors that he funded CERN for the last four years of its existence all hinted at. A reported £70 million deal with the BBC to appear on the next four seasons of Dragons Den fell through after the BBC declined to agree to his reasonable request that only green peanut M&M’s be placed in his green room.
His sporting achievements have been widely documented after he created a special football team just for one year that made it to the second round of the FA Cup in 1994.
Chris has been singing with the Trowmen for 4 years. Apparently his vocal prowess has been likened to that of a master yodeller, wild geese and a bull elephant in musth all at the same time.
He writes film screenplays, makes short and feature films when money and time allow.
His ambition is to live his life purely on the proceeds of his artistic endeavours – so far this this work in progress…
Dave sang with family, church and school as a youngster, but after his a voice broke and only knowing soprano parts, he had a 25-year break before joining local a cappella group ‘Naked Voices’ in 2002 and then ‘Original Sing’ in 2010.
His diverse musical tastes range from thrash metal through AOR to skiffle and he is one of the world’s biggest ‘Frankie Goes to Hollywood’ fans.
Singing is his release, his joy and his only remaining opportunity for the slightest degree of local notoriety. He also cycles a lot, skis a bit and enjoys peeling the bark off trees and licking the wrong side of stamps. His recent arrest on charges of wombat-baiting was completely without substance.
Doug is an almost fully grown human male of the ginger balding variety. He is the newest member of the group and was a big fan of the Trowmen before joining them.
He lives in Portishead (no, not the band, but yes they were from there too) and works as the type of musician who waves their arms around in hope that people make the comprehensible sounds sometimes known as 'singing'.
Doug enjoys swimming and photography in his spare time. Due to a distinct lack of spare time in recent years, he is hoping to be learn to swim any day now and sincerely hopes that cameras are fully waterproof.
Having recently learnt that 'shanties are cool now', Doug takes his position as the resident hipster very seriously and bakes sourdough bread, collects vintage jackets, and is even a bit 'woke'."
