Antonio Lulic - Vocals, Guitar
Ryan Mitchell-Smith - Vocals, Guitar, Harmonica
A contemporary cocktail of rock, jazz and blues with an indie twist. Influences include Radiohead, Counting Crows, Sting, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Dave Mathews, John Mayer, etc. THE HEAT (aka Ryan Mitchell-Smith & Antonio "the voice" Lulic) are a hot up and coming Wakefield based acoustic duo, absolutely stunning audiences with their clever interpretations of songs as diverse as Gershwin's "Summertime" thru Sting, Radiohead and Counting Crows to highly original material. Talented multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter Ryan Mitchell-Smith BA Music, famed for his breathtaking harmonica playing with top Yorkshire blues band Dr Blue, is the perfect foil for the stunning vocals of Antonio Lulic, a slim twenty year old Bretton student with a huge gravel voice reminiscent of Andrew Strong (The Commitments). It will only take the right song for these guys to chart. Catch them now!.
