The Overtones will be wishing Sage Gateshead a very merry Christmas on 2nd December.
But that’s not all, The Overtones are delighted to announce that Welsh singer & songwriter Jay James has joined the band. The announcement heralds the start of an exciting new era for the group which has had 5 top 10 albums, 9 sold-out UK tours and will now embark on a UK tour this December.
“Over the last 10 years, we’ve learnt a thing or two about throwing a Christmas party! People come to our shows to let their hair down, get their spirits up and dance their hearts out,” says Mike Crawshaw.
Jay James is a former Royal Navy serviceman but is not a stranger to the showbiz world, having worked with the likes of John Legend, Naughty Boy and the Jonas Brothers (amongst others) before rising to prominence as Simon Cowell’s tip on the X-Factor. Since then Jay has continued to record music and perform as well as becoming an established broadcaster.
Speaking about joining The Overtones Jay says “I’ve known the boys and been a fan for many years now and it has always been clear what they were all about – making great, timeless music, putting on incredible shows and enjoying life!”
To now join the group is absolute magic and I cannot wait to stand beside Darren, Mike & Mark in creating some more brilliant nights & continuing to make people smile, sing and dance for many moons to come!
With their modern twist on classic tracks and top-notch male vocal harmonies, the band have sold over a million albums, made countless TV appearances and filled venues to capacity on tour after tour.
In 2018 the group released their sixth album ‘The Overtones’, the accompanying sold-out UK tour took their trademark sense of celebration and party on the road with the group living up to the promise of “a night to remember”. That’s the tradition they come from and they’re certainly not about to stop now.
