Raice McLeod Profile

26 Jan 2016

What is it about former Quincy Conserve drummers? Bruno Lawrence formed BLERTA and had a successful acting and filmmaking career; Richard James Burgess produced numerous charted singles and albums in the US and UK and was a prime mover in the New Romantic movement. While Raice McLeod might not be as well known, he has an equally impressive tale to tell.

McLeod spent decades on the road in Australia, the UK and the US with show, club and jazz bands, but his highlight was five years in the drum seat with the Eva Cassidy Band in Washington DC, until she died in 1996.
