FM - the legendary UK AOR band reformed three years ago, releasing the critically acclaimed album 'Metropolis' in March 2010. The new album has produced two Radio 2 playlisted singles ' 'Hollow' and 'Bring Back Yesterday' ' which sit alongside such past classics as 'Frozen Heart', 'American Girls' and their cover of Marvin Gaye's 'Heard It Through the Grapvine'. 2010 also saw the band grace the main stage at the Download Festival.
The Union ' following the critically acclaimed release of their debut album 'The Union' in 2010, the band completed two sold out UK tours in addition to appearances at Sonisphere and High Voltage festivals. The band, ex Thunder guitarist Luke Morley and ex Winterville Vocalist Pete Shoulder, produce a very modern take on classic styles. Merging modern and classic rock, blues and country, the bands impeccable songwriting is pulled together by the uniquely powerful and emotive vocals. Peter Shoulder is one of only three British artists (the other two being Eric Clapton and Peter Green) to win a W.C. Handy Blues Foundation award, presented in Memphis in 2006 for co-writing the American Blues Song of the year 2006.
