BACKGROUND

Trinity Road as it stands now started in 2013 with just Paul and Calida as original band members.

Simon joined in 2014 and Ruth joined us in early 2018.


CALIDA HARTLEY-POTTS

Calida has been singing since a young age and ventured into amateur theatre in her teens. Qualified as a Theatre Designer,  Calida spent a few years doing this (and TV productions) before training as a Teacher (which she quit in 2017).  Now she is self-employed running her business Beams and Bobbins but still teaching little ones Technology after school. Hobbies include riding her bike (a Suzuki SV650 if you’re interested) , watching MotoGP  and going to festivals such as Bloodstock and Download.


PAUL JEFFRIES

Paul is the founding member of Trinity Road and considered manager / accountant / big boss man. Born and brought up in Suffolk, Paul is an Ipswich Town fan since the days they were good (a long time ago). He has an eclectic taste in music, likes a lot of classic rock (AC/DC, Metallica) but will admit to liking cheesy pop music as well and yes – the Taylor Swift songs were his suggestions!! His favourite guitarists Slash and Angus Young. In his spare time Paul wears lycra and likes to run.

(ok he’s a keen cyclist)


SIMON DELL

Simon’s originally from daaaaaan saaaarf and currently Teaches I.T and Computing which is ironic since he’s called Mr Dell!! He’s a full on metal head and has been in other metal/rock bands in the past – even getting airtime on the radio! In his spare time Simon loves the great outdoors and programming (Si loves Pi!); and of course beer…festival/outdoor gigs are his fave.  You’ll catch Si wearing hats. All the time.


RUTH WILDE

Trained at Leeds College of Music, Ruth has toured and gigged as a musician playing all genres including pop, rock, jazz, blues, funk and country music. Career highlights include playing at Cropredy Festival with Steve Tilston and the Durbervilles (for Sky Arts). Ruth spends her days teaching guitar/bass/ things with frets; and her spare time creating groove-based chillout music with her side project ‘Enso Project’ and walking her ASBO sausage dog.
