HOT VOX POP QUIZ WITH SILVERTONGUE
Who are SilverTongue? Where you’re from, how you met, how long have you been playing together etc
We've all come from all over the place but met each other in Brighton and we've been playing together and gigging for about 6 months
Who came up with the band name and does it have a story or any meaning behind it?
Someone tried to insult one of the members by saying he has a "silver tongue"... we thanked him and used that name woo... is that even an insult?? or a complement?? oh well
If you had to describe the band using just five words, what would they be?
We the soul baby boo
Who are your biggest influences musically?
This is the funny part because we're all so different, our drummer's obsessed with Queens of the Stone Age...our guitarists are massive RadioHead fans. The lead singer has a crush on Thundercat, and the two vocalists looooooooove Erykah Badu. Not to forget our beautiful bassist...a true Pink Floyder.
Thing is we all dig soul music and with all these different influences we come up with some strange stuff.
What’s the band's biggest claim to fame so far?
We're still starting out so its all the baby steps but we did get a BBC Intro South track of the day for our demo, 'Rain.' We were really proud of this as it was just a bedroom demo we created that got picked up in only a month.
What’s your songwriting process?
The lead singer and the 2 guitarist and bassist write the songs, drummers makes them sexy, the backing vocalists make them even sexier.

UNCLE FOX UNCLE FOX UNCLE FOX COS WE LOVE EM. Bruddas.

How would you describe your live show to someone who has never seen you perform before?
Soul baby.... We get down for you baby
Do any of you have any pre-gig or post gig rituals? If so, what and why?
We're always chilling with each other so we keep the vibes going, maybe do a little run through of everything before in someones living room. Make sure we're all looking saucy
What would your ultimate rider be if you could have anything without being accused of being a diva?
Face cream and honey for the lead singer because he's strange.. the rest of us get down with some drinks and snacks.
