Darwen band '6 Picks' has iTunes hit
A TALENTED musical trio have high hopes for the future after their debut single was released on to iTunes.
Darreners Dave Scott, Scott Parsons and Glenn Evans have come together to form ‘6 Picks’ and have now unveiled their first song.
Find Another Me was written by Mr Scott and recorded at Prism Records in Stoke.
Mr Parsons, of Atlas Road, said the song was the first of many the band hoped to release.
He said: “The reaction so far has been incredible and to see our song there on iTunes is a real buzz.
“In the first hour there were about 100 downloads.
“Dave has already written the next one and we plan to record another five songs in the studio.” Mr Parsons, a father-of-six who works for the Princes Trust, said he had been a keen singer all his life, but only really sang on karaoke and never in a band.
He was introduced to Mr Scott through a mutual friend. He said: “I went round with my friend, Nick Jackson Cooney, and Dave played me some of his songs and they were really good.
“At the time I was too shy to sing with him, but over time my confidence grew and we were able to start playing together.”
The song is about two children who grow up together and eventually become a couple, but the girl splits up with the boy and he starts a relationship with another girl who reminds him of his ex-partner.
The name stems from the boy’s plea to the girl to ‘find another me’.
Mr Parsons said: “It sounds a bit lovey-dovey, but we gave it a country twist and made it upbeat.”
Customers who have already downloaded the song from iTunes gave it a five-star rating.
One said: “I love this track. It’s upbeat, fresh and got a catchy chorus.
“Can't wait to see if they release another one. Love it.”
Another said: “This song is catchy and almost bordering on country. Either way it is a great song, fab music and it is their debut single.
“Give it a go, you won’t be disappointed and there will be many more songs to come I am sure.”
