Squire of Somerton

Esoteric solo task inaugurated by Toby Jenkins (b. Bristol, Avon, Britain) of UK folk/digital crossover duo Fort Lauderdale. Eschewing the studio room trickery of his use Steve Webster in these take action, the Squire Of Somerton noticed Jenkins celebrating his like of the guitar and declaring that ‘the god of my everything is usually rock and roll’. Jenkins produced his recording debut as the Squire Of Somerton with Transverberations, released in 2002 around the Memphis Sectors label. Mixing freewheeling freak rock and roll and glam pastiche with Jenkins’ unhinged falsetto vocals, the recording fashioned a persuasive home studio room tribute towards the legacy of Jimi Hendrix, T. Rex and Roxy Music.
