Multi platinum-selling vocal harmony group The Overtones have announced that Welsh singer/songwriter Jay James has joined the band. This is the start of an exciting new era for the group which has had five Top 10 albums, nine sold-out UK tours and will now embark on a UK tour this December.
A former Royal Navy serviceman, Jay had enjoyed a varied recording career working with the likes of Booker T Jones, 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.
The first song to be recorded with this new line-up is Earth Wind & Fire’s September.
With their innate charm and adherence to vintage-modernist style, and a devotion to the timeless appeal of male vocal harmonies, The Overtones are a bridge between pre-rock’n’roll classicism and lively 21st century entertainment. They’ve sold over a million albums, made countless TV appearances and filled venues to capacity on tour after tour, all the while building a relationship with their fans that has real depth and devotion.
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.
The Overtones will take to the road this December for their annual Christmas tour.
