With the undeniable weight and groove of Webb's signature sound and Turner's soaring, rich vocals, it is easy to understand why Solsikk mrepresent a unique voice and experience. Eschewing the operatic approach all too frequent amongst current female fronted groups, Solsikk represent a unique voice and experience they are rapidly gaining a well deserved following.

With addition of Turner's vocals, and a delivery ranging from guttural roar and smooth vibrato through to high screams, Turner is every bit as stunning as her voice suggests.

This sound would be further enriched by the addition of Mark Mulcaster on bass whose awareness and powerful approach added both soul and depth in equal measure to the often demanding parts. Well known for his speed, technique and power, as a former band mate of Webb's, Matt.C was approached about occupying the drum stool, bringing with him added groove and intensity.
