The Counteracts from Kent, UK, are a collaboration between songwriters Simon J.Biscoe and Doug Smith. Simon first got into music whist still at school, where he helped form The Contacts, and he has also played in a covers band The Ghostriders, He now plays Bass and enjoys writing songs on his own and in collaboration with others.
Doug was a classically-taught pianist as a child. Since 2010, he has been writing, recording and collaborating with other musicians, contributing to Bands including GLAD, SilverSmith and The Contacts, as well as releasing his own music under the moniker Dag Smith.
The Counteracts first met in January of 2015, and their initial intention was to record some original songs that Simon had in reserve. But the reaction to the first 2 songs they released was so favourable, that they have decided to record more original tracks and covers, whenever the opportunities arise.
