Lever - Lead Vocals / Rhythm Guitar
started playing guitar at 14 and played in numerous local bands
before becoming lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist in Thanos,
where he went on to gig original material around the Stockport
and Manchester areas. After meeting Gary, Thanos underwent further
personnel changes before finally morphing into Healer and becoming
the wedding/corporate covers act that they are today. Rik has
a highly dynamic stage presence and definitely ensures that the
audience is fully involved in a Healer show.
Powell – Lead Guitar / Backing Vocals
started playing at the age of 7 and made his paid stage debut
at the age of 13. He studied Music ‘A’ Level and has
Grade 8 guitar and Grade 6 piano qualifications. Gary played in
a string of Manchester bands, during this time he toured nationally,
performing at venues including The Marquee, and recorded with
Producer/Engineer Leith Mathes (of ABBA, Led Zep and other credits).
In 2001 Gary landed the same role in 60’s band Herman’s
Hermits, who have sold over 64,000,000 records, performing to
audiences of 5,000 plus. Today Gary uses all that hard-earned
stage experience entertaining audiences with Healer.
