The Impossible Gentlemen

The Impossible Gentlemen were founded over a decade ago by internationally acclaimed piano sensation Gwilym Simcock and Salford guitarist and UK treasure Mike Walker.  The 2022 version welcomes new UK bass and drums superstars Laurence Cottle and Ian Thomas. Three albums on from their original line-up, the new unit promises to be nothing less than remarkable with four unique talents, all superb players, coming together to create something new and powerful.
