Jeremy Kelshaw Quits Cloud Control

Cloud Control will start 2015 with a line-up change. Founding member Jeremy Kelshaw has quit the band.

Kelshaw’s departure is the first line-up change ever for Cloud Control.

The band from the Blue Mountains, outside Sydney, formed in 2007. They won the 2010 Australian Music Prize for their ‘Bliss Release’ album and have been nominated twice for ARIA Awards.

In a statement at the Cloud Control Facebook page Kelshaw said, “Dear music lovers. After 10 years of blissfully rocking out & playing bass all over the world, I’ve decided to step out of cloud control & return to civilian life. I’m so proud of what we’ve accomplished & it’s not been easy arriving at this point, but that’s ok.

“I love my band & I love our fans. To Heidi, Al & Ulrich: thanks for creating this dream with me, you guys are the best. To everyone who has worked with us, played with us, come to a show or listened to our music: you guys are second best & I love you all.
CC album #3 is being worked on, never fear, but these Falls & Southbound shows are my last.

“Life is extreme, so’s my new hair cut. Music is the best thing ever, but you knew this already. Much love. Jeremy”

Cloud Control’s second album ‘Dream Cave’ was released in 2013. It peaked at no. 9 on the ARIA album chart.
