M-40 began life as Overcast, around 10 years ago but soon changed their name to M-40 because the name didn’t seem to fit.
The four members, Lee Kennedy (vocals), Alan Lamb (lead guitar/songwriter), Justin Lamb (bass) and Steven "Basher" Bailey (drums) all grew up in the same area of Manchester and share the same vision – to unite through music.
Influenced by classic artists such as Johnny Marr, Oasis, The Prodigy and the Sex Pistols, M-40 have crafted their own unique sound that indicates big things to come. Their debut single, “Falling” is a masterful combination of heavy guitar licks, throbbing bass and arrogant drums, pulled together in perfection by Lee’s vocals.
