This Years Love / Bio

The first group I (Gaz) ever joined, Black TB (Graham, Gary, Gav) practiced in an empty storage unit/school classrooms and in garages. We only ever played a handful of gigs, but we had an awesome time. A couple of us broke off and formed a punk/metal group called Travisty (Gary, Al Gav, Ben, Mark) (yes we knew it was spelt wrong) we played 100s of gigs and events around the country. At one point we were booked to play in Italy but, as most bands do.. we lost a few members and decided to end it in 2008.
Curio (Reece, Al, Jim, Knox) (www.facebook.com/curiouk) came next. It was an awesome two years, we played 60 gigs a year including festivals and self-released two albums. I still hear rumorus and get asked if we are getting back together … lol
After Curio I joined the cover scene, joining the tribute band ‘The Reet Hot Chili Peppers’. Loved it! I left in April (ish) 2011 but they are still going strong, please go check them out www.therhcp.co.uk
In 2011 we (me & Gav (Previous drummer)), with the birth of our children formed This Years Love and dedicated an album to our baby girls.

Since we started there have been two studio albums: 'Take the Stage' & 'A New Beginning' both were recorded @ C90 Studios UK and self-released. There has been a number of changes to the line-up, and now I’m working on the next album for 2014.

‘Take the Stage’ was released in February 2012 and it has been fantastically well received, and selling over 1000+ copies. I received endorsements from companies up and down the UK and USA, in support of the most recent album 'A New Beginning'.

We celebrated the release of the album ‘A New Beginning’ by headlining the O2 Academy in Newcastle selling out all copies of the album to an awesome crowd.... read more @ www.ThisYearsLoveMusic.co.uk
