The Overtones

The Overtones will return with new studio album Sweet Soul Music on 9th February 2015 which will be supported by a new tour.

Sweet Soul Music sees the five-piece vocal harmony group pay tribute to doo-wop and soul pioneers such as The Drifters, Al Green, Marvin Gaye and The Temptations. The album as recorded at Sarm Studios with producer Julian Hinton (Seal, Rumer, Trevor Horn).

“They’re all classic songs which ruled the airwaves,” says Timmy Matley. “It’s been a real pleasure to take on these big songs, we’ve stretched our voices – our vocal abilities, our harmonies, our whole approach and moved into a different gear.”

“Apart from making you dance, soul music really does hit you in the heart,” adds Lachie Chapman. “There’s also often such a beautiful sentiment behind these songs which is why we’re still listening to them fifty years later. They’re really universal and I think they have something that everyone can relate to.”
