Ash Bell has lived in the northern rivers for most of his life and in the Byron shire for about 20 years. Matt Bone also moved to the area about 20 years ago and never the twain did meet until 2009 when an argument over the tuning of strings led the lads down the Starboard Cannons garden path.

They had managed to avoid each other until fate had different plans and since then they have recorded an album, won awards and established themselves as a firm favourite in the Byron live music scene.

To see more of the Cannons visit their Facebook facebook.com/starboardcannons or www.starboardcannons.com
