Who are we?
Steve Ansell & The Truth were formed by songwriter, artist and director Steve Ansell when he realised that the sounds in his head were richer and more exciting than the sounds he was producing alone on stage. Having had this eureka moment he began enlisting others to try and capture what was going on inside his cranium. Singer and Uke player Jan Wilson was enlisted first to be joined soon afterwards by jazz vocalist and actress Anna Shotter. the threesome played to widespread acclaim for over a year but something was still missing. That something turned out to be fellow actor and multi-instrumentalist Gareth Pryce-Baghurst. The addition of a fourth voice to the band and the flexibility of mandolin, banjo, accordion and guitar finally did the trick and 'The Truth' was born. Steve also stopped talking about the sounds in his head which has made everybody feel a lot more comfortable.
