Band Biography

The Cunic Ensemble is a song-based music project started in 2011 by John Clarke, who has written and produced songs with various musicians from the Merseyside area and beyond.

The Cunic Ensemble were born after John had written a batch of songs with a common theme and sprit. The songs were also a vehicle for him to create something different from his usual work of writing and producing instrumental music for films.

There are no specific styles of music for the Cunic Ensemble. The songs on the album are different in style and will continue to evolve and change with future releases.

Although John has written and arranged the songs, the album “The Gram” really only came alive with the musicians who gave up their time to make a big contribution to the recording process and each one of them gave the album a little bit of their own character and helped bring the songs to life.

The first single from the album, Freedom, is available to buy from iTunes, Amazon and Buy our music here
