The band, originating from Lambourn and Swindon was formed in April 2017 by the guitarist Shaun Johnson. Uncovered have played a handful of shows and are building up a solid reputation among crowds of all ages. Their professional approach and dedication has been renowned among audiences.
Both Shaun and lead singer Gracie O’Reilly work within the horseracing industry. While Shaun handles transport for trainer Daniel Kubler, Gracie works for Oliver Sherwood.
The rest of the band is made up of Steve Miller on bass, Chris Newstead on keyboard, Colin Matthew on guitar and Tom Wiltshire on drums.
Shaun Johnson of Uncovered said “Racing Welfare provides many areas of support for people who work in the racing industry and that’s where the inspiration came from to release the song to try and raise not only some money for the organisation but also to promote awareness that they are there 24/7 to help and advise racing staff in times of need.”
The single ‘Lean on Me‘ is available for pre-order on all major download and streaming sites now.
