Shyboy was founded by local musician Andy Burkes.
The band rehearsed in Andy's basement - spending many a late night jamming.
The songwriting started with Andy at the helm but, with Tim's interest in home recording growing, ideas were laid down on his his (joint owned) TASACAM 144 and replayed to Andy. Andy would leap around the room singing and these ideas were later introduced to the rest of the band who would add their own flavour to the emerging recipe.
By the time the band gigged for the first time t the White Rock Pavilion the band had grown to the size of a small orchestra.
