Introducing...My Forever

YMC: When and how did you get together?

Dave (My Forever): Me and Roy met through mutual friends at a party in Newcastle at the beginning of summer 2009 and discovered we had similar musical tastes. Later that year, during November, we arranged to get together to work on a number of song ideas which I had come up with. We quickly realized we had a strong musical connection and decided to form “My Forever”.

YMC: You have just released your debut single "Silken Butterflies", it has a very strong band sound to say there are only 2 of you, how have you done this?

Dave (My Forever): Everything you hear on the single has been recorded by me and Roy. All the instruments were played by Me, and the vocals by Roy. It was then mixed and produced in my home studio. Obviously to reproduce this sound live we will need additional band members and that’s something we have planned once the EP is complete. For the moment we are gigging the songs acoustically.

YMC: Where can we get the single?
Dave (My Forever): It is available as a free download from our myspace page (

YMC: Do you have any further recording plans?

Dave (My Forever): We are currently recording further tracks for our debut EP which will hopefully be completed in the next couple of months. This will be released online for download however, we will be posting new tracks on our myspace page as they are completed so keep checking on there for news on this.  

YMC: Who are your main influences?

Dave (My Forever): For me my songwriting has been influenced heavily by bands such as The Goo Goo Dolls & Dashboard Confessional where as my guitar playing has been influenced by bands such as Led Zeppelin and U2. Roy however, is lyrically influenced heavily by his passion for poetry and vocally by bands such as Death Cab For Cutie, and Silversun Pickups. 

YMC: Have you any gigs coming up, where do you mainly play?

Dave (My Forever): We have been doing acoustic gigs in Roys home town of Scarborough however, we are mainly focusing on completing our EP at the moment. As soon as this is finished we will be gigging intensively in as many places as possible. We are planning on having an EP release show in my home town of Leeds once the EP is finished so keep checking on our MySpace for news on this and any acoustic shows until then will be posted on our MySpace too.
