The Barnum Meserve are a British epic rock/pop band that feature a strong orchestral section, who formed in Nottingham in November 2007. They will release their debut album ‘The Barnum Meserve’ in Q1 of 2015, with the lead single ‘Colours’ released on 1st December 2014. The Band consists of: Leon Wiley (Piano/Vocals), Dylan Griffiths (Bass) and Paul Moss-Pearce (Drums). They offer something truly unique as there are very few bands that feature the dusky sounds of a piano in their music, and fewer still that do it as well as The Barnum Meserve.
The three met in Nottingham when Dylan took the train from his hometown of Twynn in Wales after hearing about the underground music scene there. He met Leon at arts college where they shared a passion for music. Soon after they formed a rock group called Splint and during one of their gigs they met Paul who was with his band, Prima Cura, who opened the show for them. This was the start of a new connection and in 2005 it all ended for Splint and Leon and Dylan soon fell into the world of 9 to 5.
