If there is one question that I am asked about more than most is where did the name Split Sofa come from?

For years I couldn’t piece it together at all until I came to writing the history of sofa rock for the Archeology series which is now going into book form

So we have to go back to 1999 and songwriting with my old school Pal Paul Cook who I now do HAZY LEMON podcast with. We decided to have a flow of songs which linked together with a suite of songs which lead to the finished song title called ” A Three Piece suite”

With that in Mind a stupid joke which I made up somehow stuck
“Did You Hear about the band Split Sofa? – They formed a 3 piece – yeah I know not funny really but that name came out of nowhere so I assume that while we were working on that song it was a Kosmic Happening

At first, I was kinda ashamed of the name but people liked it so I embraced it and over time we have become known on Itunes and all the other downloadable ventures you wanna go down.

Split Sofa has been on the web since 2005 and the five-year plan was to just record and get enough material on the main sites to show over time what songs we have done and the versatility of my songwriting showing the growth and maturity and the evolving growth of Sofa Rock

So the show goes on within you or without you
