Jaded is a Rock Tribute band that performs many of the best “classic rock” songs of the last forty years. It has evolved around the partnership of drummer Phil Smart and bass guitarist John Matthews. Both musicians share a wealth of experience in the music industry having been involved with The Blockheads, Robert Plant, Chicken Shack, The Band Of Joy, Velvet Fogg, Jeff Lynn and Traffic amongst others. This together with many hours of studio session work for a variety of recording artists enables them to provide the driving force behind Jaded.
Graham Knight has been belting out songs since joining his first band at the age of 14, fronting Overlord with ex Geezer Butler Band drummer John Me. A variety of bands and studio work has followed including The Haunting and collaborations with Witch Finder General.
