Blind Frog Ernie was started as a studio project in 1997 by Dave Fox. He recorded the first BFE album Seven Shades Of Blue at Angel Studio. Dave was soon joined by Christina Ward on rhythm guitar and backing vocals, Mark Allsopp on bass and Andy Hemmings on drums. In 2003, Chrissy and Andy left the band and into the fold came Neil Bailey on lead vocals and Jon Dawson on drums. The band recorded several acclaimed CDs and toured the UK until 2006 (with a couple of changes of drummer in the interim) when they decided to call it a day.
