Ten had his gigging debut in June 2009 at the City Screen in York. Ten's sound combines electronic keys, shoegaze noise and percussion with the acoustic sounds of glockenspiel and a string quartet to create a beautiful sound-scape that moves from slow, eerie and melancholic to pulsating and optimistic. Ten have toured extensively around the UK, Europe and the United States, having performed with Stuart Braithwaite of Mogwai, Vessels, The Declining Winter and Codes in the Clouds.
