Ten Foot Wizard were formed in Manchester, England in late 2009 with an original line-up of Gary Harkin (guitar & vocals), Dan Mucs (guitar), Glen Caskie (bass) and Toby Byers (drums). This line-up remained unchanged until 2012 when Mucs and Byers left the band to be replaced by Adam Henry (guitar} and Matt Lawless (drums).
In the early years of the band, Ten Foot Wizard considered themselves a side project; this changed when Harkin, Henry and former drummer Byers' previous band, Bisonhammer, split in 2012. With this new focus, Ten Foot Wizard's live appearances increased significantly, garnering them a reputation in the Manchester rock and metal scene for their solid live performances. In 2013, Ten Foot Wizard released their first album, Return of the Infinite, put out on their own independent label Beard of Zeus. In 2014, the band played the Jägermeister stage of the UK's Bloodstock Festival. The same year, they also played at the Manchester leg of Karma To Burn and Desert Storm's UK tour. By the end of 2014, the line-up had stabilised as Harkin, Henry Emlyn Spiers (bass) and Jonny Banyard (drums). 2015 sees Ten Foot Wizard play at DesertFest London in The Black Heart.
Along the way, Ten Foot Wizard have played alongside many bands of the stoner rock scene, including Karma To Burn twice, Witch Mountain, Ovvl, Trippy Wicked, Wight, Widows, Iron Witch and Desert Storm.
TFW play heavy blues rock, blending classic bands such as Black Sabbath and ZZ Top with contemporary bands such as Clutch, QoTSA and The Misfits.
