That Joe Payne
That Joe Payne is a classically trained vocalist with backgrounds in theatre, pop and rock music, remembered by audiences for his impressive 5 octave range and strong countertenor. The broad orchestral palettes of Moray's keyboards are the cornerstone of Joe's ambitious live shows which span pop, classical, and theatre.
Following the release of her debut solo album Recovery Is Learning, Moray joined Kim Seviour's backing band to promote the album. The highlight was their appearance at Trinity Live, delivering a high-energy set described by Manchester Rocks as "[a]rguably the set of the day".
Self-styled "purveyors of audio strangeness" since 2015, North Haverbrook is an experimental blues/art rock project created by producer and multi-instrumentalist Tim Lawrie with Moray's assistance. Taking their influences from American folk music, blues and The Simpsons, they have released four tracks to date as part of an ever-expanding online "album" of their stranger ideas including covers and instrumentals. They are also working on a more conventional release.
Crazy Diamond are a Pink Floyd tribute band based in Reading. Moray was a member of their previous guise Floydian Doors but since then the band has expanded to a 9-piece Pink Floyd experience with light show, projections, and an incredible full sound that must be heard to be believed. The show is a two-hour tour through the work of Pink Floyd, including hits, deep cuts and even solo material where it fits the arc of the show. Moray became the cornerstone of the new revitalised lineup, honing his palette of authentic Richard Wright sounds and specialist Hammond organ techniques. He also worked to put together all the new and old videos used in the show.
