Book Stereophonics for a Private Performance
Stereophonics were formed in South Wales, originally as the teenage cover band Tragic Love Company. In Kelly Jones, Stereophonics possessed an able writer as well as a singer of some distinction. One of the first bands on Richard Branson’s new V2 label, they were signed by CEO Jeremy Pearce in 1996 before the label was officially up and running. They entered the charts for the first time with ‘Local Boy in the Photograph’ and didn’t look back.
Each of their subsequent singles sold progressively better, culminating in a U.K. Top Ten placing for their debut album, Word Gets Around, and Top 20 honours for ‘Traffic’. A reissue of ‘Local Boy in the Photograph’ also made the Top 20, in the same week as they received a Brit Award for Best New Group. In September 2003, Stereophonics returned with their most honest material to date on You Gotta Go There to Come Back.
The band’s first live album, Live from Dakota, arrived in spring 2006. After an extensive tour, including performances in Moscow and Latvia, the group returned to the U.K. and released three formats of the single ‘It Means Nothing’ two weeks before Pull the Pin hit store shelves in mid-October 2007. The compilation Decade in the Sun: The Best of Stereophonics arrived in 2008, followed by the all-new Keep Calm and Carry On in 2009.
2013’s Graffiti on the Train featured the hit single ‘Indian Summer’. Graffiti on the Train was certified platinum, thanks in part to ‘Indian Summer’ and the title track. Two years later came Keep the Village Alive. Stereophonics returned in the summer of 2017 with their tenth studio effort, Scream Above the Sounds. The record was released in time to commemorate the 20th anniversary of Word Gets Around.
