THREE people from Glasgow with words and music of their ownNthat's the Natural Acoustic Band. For Krysia Kocjan (17), Robin Thine (20) and Tom Hoy (21 ) believe implicitly in their own music and only occasionally make any con-cession to anyone else's. KRYSIA ( pronounced Kree-sha) has been singing for years and writes a high percentage of the group's material. She captures in words, and an incredible vocal range, what many people have tried for years to do. TOM plays guitar and writes the more commercial of the group's material. Like "Learning to Live" and "All I Want is Your Love" which have already received praise from various sources including Melody Maker. ROBIN plays guitar, re-corders, bongos, skulls and Glockenspiel with equal equanimity. His skill in being able to adapt to so many instruments gives a variety that many groups will envy. Together they make a sound that is very much their own. And their appearances on TV, radio and concert (with, among others, Fairport Convention and
Roy Harper), just serve to enhance their reputation. For a spell they had a double bass player but he left to further his University career. So they're back to their original line-up. And happy with it.
