We Are Kin biography
Initially three of the members of WE ARE KIN met whilst playing as backing musicians in 2011 to the Manchester UK based pop-duo THE RECLUSIVE BARCLAY BROTHERS (now HOLOGRAM HEART PARADE). Gary BOAST and Dan ZAMBAS began discussing music during rehearsal breaks and very quickly realised that they shared a love of progressive music, specifically GENESIS. It was during these discussions that the two embarked on an idea to begin collaborating and writing their own music to satisfy their progressive needs!

One of the earliest compositions was ''HOME SWEET HOME'', once this materialised Gary and Dan realised that they had created something they were both very proud of and decided to aim to create a full band to realise their progressive dreams. During these sessions they invited BARCLAY BROTHERS backing vocalist Hannah COTTERILL to join to add vocal credibility to the recorded music, at the time Dan was dabbling in vocals but was very aware that his voice was an untrained instrument and the music demanded a more honed vocal delivery.

The band then attempted to recruit various musicians to develop into a full band ensemble, the most successful of these ventures was the Rock outfit FIELDS WITHOUT FENCES but the direction of this band was not what Gary and Dan sought so they ended their involvement and returned to the studio to define their sound.

At this point they began collaborating with Hannah COTTERILL with writing new music and momentum started to build, unfortunately for the band Hannah obtained a music contract working on cruise ships performing music (this was an awesome opportunity that couldn't be turned down, how many people get to earn a living from music right?). This was the defining moment for WE ARE KIN, back down to 2 full-time members at the beginning of 2013 what could they do to develop? The answer a concept album, 'PANDORA'.

Hannah returned for some recording sessions to add her spin on the music at the back-end of 2013 and also in collaboration with the Scottish Poet Alex DUNEDIN, they finished the recordings and released their debut album in March 2014.
