CAEZAR are Joe Donnelly and JJ Gilmour, both former members of Scottish band The Silencers. Both JJ & Joe enjoyed great success with the band touring with U2, Simple Minds and The Pretenders over the years as well as playing to thousands of their own fans, picking up many plaudits and a few gold albums along the way.
Strangely both JJ & Joe never played in the The Silencers
at the same time. They got to know each other on an emotional week in Glasgow when all members of The Silencers got back together to perform a sold out show in aid of the bands much loved guitarist Cha Burns, who was very ill. Sadly Cha passed away not long after the show.
During the weeks rehearsal for this show, Joe & JJ struck up a firm friendship and realised they had much in common musically. They both started writing new material in Ireland and then reconvened to Scotland to record their debut EP ‘The Prayer’ for the Vertere Record label. ‘The Prayer’ was released in October 2016 to critical acclaim.
CAEZAR are currently recording songs for their debut album and planning live shows for late 2017.
