Redwoods is Elliot Crampton, Killian Dunne and Paul Sheehy. The average age of the band is 17.66666666666. When we get the chance we like to go busking and surfing down in Kerry. Elliot is by far the worst at surfing…
Elliot is the lead singer and songwriter in the band. He began writing songs when he was eight years old. His favourite dinners are either hard tacos or chicken and spicy sausage. He likes vintage guitars but can’t afford any. He has a little studio in his garden and that is where we record all our songs. He also has big, fluffy ginger hair.
Killian is the lead guitarist and backing vocalist in the band. He started playing guitar when he was nine. As a kid, he loved skateboarding.. He has been bare-knuckle boxing multiple times with Kimbo Slice. Killian is the only founding member of Redwoods that is able to grow a sweet-ass beard.
Paul is the bassist and backing vocalist in the band. He has been friends with Killian since they were little kids. He also used to love skating. Paul is the delinquent in the band, he can take absolutely nothing seriously and has the attention span of a fish. His favourite movies include Jackass: The Movie, Jackass 2, Jackass 2.5, Jackass 3, Jackass 3.5, Jackass: Season 1-3, Jackass: The Lost Episodes and the ‘behind the scenes’ of Jackass. He plays with a plec and puts ketchup on everything.
