Influenced by his father, Virgil’s musical journey began when he picked up the mandolin as a child. His band released their debut album ‘The Radium’ when he was 17 years old and its success led to them recording a live DVD at Marshall HQ and teaming up with the legendary Chris Tsangarides on their second release. With the line-up completed by his younger brother, Gabriel, and bassist Jack Timmis, Virgil and the Accelerators are proving to be an exciting force in the UK music scene.
