Malcolm Journeaux

Malcolm's first involvement with music began after he saw a guitar in a second hand shop window whilst out riding his motorbike in 1989, and bought it on a whim!

Having learned to play, he joined a band called 'Forgiven' as a guitarist in 1992.

This was followed in 2002 by co-founding his own band, 'Crimson Scarlet', with Paul Preston. As well as playing guitar and bass, Malcolm co-wrote songs, contributing the music to Paul's lyrics.

Malcolm began writing lyrics of his own in 2004 with a song he called 'Paradise Girl', dedicated to his wife, Pauline - which he and SJ Johnson subsequently refined and recorded in 2020.

After Crimson Scarlet disbanded in 2008, Malcolm formed a duo with vocalist Lisa Jules, playing guitar to accompany Lisa performing acoustic versions of his songs until 2010.

A very long break from songwriting and playing ended in summer 2019 when Malcolm and SJ Johnson formed Sable 097.
