Elegant Simplicity, a progressive rock band, originally hail from Leeds, UK, and was formed in 1992 by Steven McCabe as a vehicle for his own compositions. Completely self-taught on guitar, piano, mandolin, flute etc he cites his biggest inspirations as coming from David Gilmour, Andy Latimer, Al DiMeola, Manfred Mann and John Lees. He plays Fender and Ovation guitars and uses Line6 amplification.
Steven is a prolific composer and has been writing songs since 1992. When not prog-rocking out, he is a database developer!
The bands longest-serving drummer, Christopher Knight, has been playing drums since he was 9 years old and is huge fan of Terry Bozio and Phil Collins. Hailing from Newcastle, Chris is a versatile drummer and does what he is told!
As for Ken Senior, the bands vocalist, he has been playing and singing for as long as he can remember. A supremely talented multi-instrumentalist and recording artist in his own right (as well as bass player for Parallel or 90 Degrees) Ken loves to work; playing guitar or bass in a variety of tribute bands. He even does the occasional DJ slot! If you live around the Dewsbury area of West Yorkshire, UK, you are quite likely to have seen him strutting his stuff on the stage!
Ken is currently working on several CDs of solo material.
