Thomas and Lucas McCone and Scott Attew make up Dubai’s new must-see band, which shared a bill with Lionel Richie
In 2016, we opened for Lionel Richie after the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix in du Arena in front of nearly 25,000 people, and we released our debut EP From The Beginning. All of that was achieved within a little over a year after forming the band.
We’re working to create a new sound and bring something different to the table by working on original music. For us, music is all about creating. We each have our strengths and we’ve learnt what each of us needs to focus on.
We have very different backgrounds. Lucas and Thomas left school at 11 and dedicated their entire childhoods and teens to their tennis careers. They stopped at the age of 20. Obviously to switch to the music industry, which we knew nothing about, could be seen as quite risky – especially since neither Lucas nor Thomas had previously studied music or had any lessons. Scott left school at 17 to pursue music and received quite a lot of criticism from his peers for doing so.
To be getting the recognition and success we’re having is a very uplifting feeling.
