My Girl Sleeps
My Girl Sleeps achieved a lot in the relatively few years they were together...
After gigging around the Redditch area with occasional shows farther afield, My Girl Sleep released an EP called 'Broken'. This release picked up good reviews in the press, with an 'EP of the month' in Total Guitar Magazine, July 2003.
Radio airplay followed on Energy FM and on BRMB's 'The Sanctuary'. This secured them a television slot on ITV's 'Exposure' with Lisa I'Anson, alongside the Fun Lovin' Criminals.
In 2004 they won a TV talent show, 'Music Uncovered', polling 56% of the live phone vote. Commenting on the win, Dave Humphries, the bands songwriter, said: "This is the culmination of nearly two years hard work, both on the road and in the studio.
"We knew that we weren't the first choice of the panel in the studio, but in the final, they didn't have a vote and when the phone lines opened, they lit up with people voting for us!"
In 2005 the band appeared at Guilfest on the same day as Daniel Bedingfield, Status Quo and Marillion. They also reached Number 1 on the BBC Radio 1 One Music Punk charts.
Sadly they disbanded shortly afterwards.
You can listen to all the latest music from across the two counties on the Friday Session, every week from 7pm, on BBC Hereford & Worcester.
