Rum Thief is solo artist Jot Green with support from his band members Kieran Whitehouse on lead guitar, Gary Long on bass and Chris Hobbs on drums. Based in Chorlton, Manchester, the project began when Green, a drummer in bands for over ten years, decided to record some songs of his own. Booking into Manchester’s Airtight Studio, he played the drums, guitars, vocals and backing vocals on his first EP ‘Clouded Mind’. The titular lead track generated interest from media outlets across the north-west and, with the help of his bandmates, Rum Thief secured local gigs, festivals, support slots and airplay on the local and national radio.
Rum Thief’s second EP ‘Reach For The Weather Man’, characterised by Jot Green’s keen ear for melody and sharp observational lyrical content received widespread critical acclaim from the likes of Fred Perry Subculture and much more notable media outlets around the world. After successfully headlining the Manchester Ritz he got down to recording this third EP ‘Time To Make A Move ‘ at the legendary Hackney Road Studio with producer Shuta Shinoda (Ghost Poet ‘Shedding Skin’).
