Marek Funkas - Bass

Steve Weaver - Drums

Helen Turner, on vocals, from Glasgow, Scotland, is "the real deal" according to Classic Rock magazine, "brilliant" and "in a different class" according to Classic Rock Blues, and simply "wonderful" according to Blues Matters. Beautiful vocals on record and even better live.

Iain Black, on guitar, has been Helen's musical partner for several years, including in the Bare Bones Boogie Band, whose third album, Tattered & Torn, was one of Classic Rock Blues magazine's top albums of 2013, and whose gigs were attended by Led Zeppelin's Robert Plant.

Marek Funkas, on bass, hooked up with Helen and Iain to form Born Healer in 2015. Originally from Poland, Marek has lived in London for 20 years and plays most of his music in the UK. Marek also plays with his own band, Laba, and regularly deps for major international touring artists including live performances at London's Scala and Wembley Arena.

Steve Weaver, on drums, joined Born Healer in January 2019 and brings a wealth of live performance experience from tours with original bands, tribute shows, function and cover bands. Steve even fronts his own AC/DC tribute band! Steve fitted in super quickly to the Born Healer family and brings real spark and energy to live performances.

Before Steve, Andy Jones played drums with Born Healer from 2015 to January 2019. We wish Andy all the very best!

Born Healer released their debut album, 'Til the Dawn, in 2016. In January 2018, the band followed this up with a single, Forgot to Forget. All tracks are available to stream or download from most online music services, with several promo videos on YouTube. A double-A side single, Heavy Rumble / Old Father Time was released online in July 2019.
