Speaking with TheGayUK about their new release Mark Crawshaw from Sale in Greater Manchester said,

“Well, The title says it all really. It’s all the soul classics and we’re keen songwriters as well so there are three originals on there… It’s songs like, I Heard It Through The Grapevine, Give Me Just A Little More Time.”

The Overtones have sold over 750,000 records in the UK with their first album, Good Ol’ Fashioned Love going platinum and their second, Higher going gold.

The fivesome recorded River Deep Mountain High with X Factor winner Sam Bailey, talking about the recording Darren Everest from Essex said,


“She’s cool man, she’s a really cool girl. Really down to earth, loves a chat… We just sat there for two hours and we’re like, ‘we should probably do some singing now…’ It was really cool to see her and Lachie go in, they had a mic each when they were doing their leads. It was like one big sing off. It was really cool. She was heavily pregnant and we were a bit like, as she was hitting them high notes, ‘I hope she doesn’t pop…'”
