Where are you from?

The Everglows.

How would you describe yourselves?

To get our music to as wide an audience as possible, by playing regular gigs & to record our first LP.

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
Recording our first EP and getting it played on the radio. The response to 'That Other Girl' has been amazing, totally unexpected!

And what’s the moment you want to forget?
Me and Ray did an open mic the second time we ever met Steve. We didn't go on till 11pm and were absolutely hammered! I dropped my pick and spent 30 seconds on my hands and knees trying to pick it up. Not cool. Deffo night to forget. Somehow Steve still wanted to join!

If you had to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
Ten Packs Of Twenty. I think it captures the sound perfectly. It's tight, melodic, catchy with a real power to the whole thing. 

Where can we listen to it? or it can be downloaded for free
