Kerri-Anne Bundock

Kerri-Anne was born in South Africa and raised in rural England. Coming from a very musical family, she grew up listening to 60s soul and blues. At the age of 12, she picked up a guitar and started writing songs. She spent her childhood singing in choirs and playing lead parts in musicals, eventually joining a blues band at the tender age of 14. At 16, Kerri went to music college where she began to experiment with a melange of musical styles from soul and funk through to heavy rock, developing her own hypnotic way of song-writing. During her time at college she played many gigs, including headline dates at major venues such as the London Astoria. She came to London when she was 18 in pursuit of her musical destiny. Her foxy looks, charismatic stage presence and unique vocal style proved an immediate hit. In 2003 Kerri joined Misnomer, with her rare, powerful and beautiful voice matching their sound perfectly.

John
John Lacey

In 1997, John began to experiment with electronic music and quickly discovered an aptitude for progression and counter-melody. Locking himself away for a year, he emerged in 1999 with a wealth of material ready to be unleashed upon an unsuspecting world. His love of dynamics and distorted elements was apparent, and he became a key player in the electro-punk movement of the late nineties. With the success of his music on the internet, offers began to come in, and he was head-hunted by celebrated producer Brian Higgins (Sugababes, Girls Aloud, Saint Etienne, Danni Minogue), but unfortunately the timing was wrong and John returned to his work soundtracking a number of films. At this point, he felt that collaboration would open up new doors, and building the band around himself, Misnomer soon developed into something that he could never have imagined.

Dazed
Yvonne Okoduwa

Dazed was born to African parents in London. Coming from a distinctly un-musical household, she drifted between hip-hop, punk and hard rock for a couple of years. Dazed finally made her choice to become the female Hendrix at the age of fifteen after she worked in a guitar shop in Oxford Street. She went on to study music technology at college, a vocation which has since taken her as far afield as China. Dazed joined Misnomer after Anton stalked her on the internet for three months.

First picking up a guitar at the age of 12 and rapidly superseding his teacher as the better guitarist of the two, James spent a few years jamming along to Guns’n’Roses records with friends.

James originally wanted to form a rock’n’roll band but this was not to be as his older brother John drafted him in to play lead guitar in Misnomer.
