We are a four piece indie band from Sheffield. Our songs can vary between fast and slow with our original sound that we bring. We have a soft sound at times in songs but also can play heavier also adding to the versatility of the band.
Marples formed on 9th August 2021 with members Joseph Neville (Lead Vocal and rhythm guitarist), Thomas Martin (Lead guitarist) and Joseph Kneale (Bass guitarist). We just needed a drummer and soon brought in Jaidyn MacDonald on the drums. We progressed from playing covers to writing our own songs and going on to play live at open mics. We then moved forward to playing our own gigs and to support other bands at their gigs in different venues across our city. We had a change in drummer as Jaidyn MacDonald decided to leave the band as he realised it wasn’t his thing so we looked for a new drummer and we were very impressed when we invited Luke Fieldsend to practice with us. He picked up our songs nearly straight away and it seemed like a perfect fit so we invited Luke to join the band and he was delighted to join.
