Three’s a Melody

It was at their first pub gig that the name "The Staves" was written on a sheet of paper and stuck on the board to announce their arrival. "Since our last name is very long — Staveley-Taylor — our friends call us Staves. One day, it became the band's name," says the 23-year-old. After gaining a foothold in their town, the three contributed music to albums of other artistes such as Tom Jones and Fionn Regan, before touring with Grammy-winning American indie folk band, Bon Iver, this year. It was Fin Greenall, an English singer-songwriter and frontman of Fink, who convinced them to tour India. "Fink told us great things about India. We have no idea what the music scene is in India, though we hope to collaborate with a few musicians," says Camilla. The trio will play with Fink on the latter's tour of the country at Liberty Cinema in Mumbai on December 14 and Blue Frog in Delhi on December 16.
