“Like if Arctic Monkeys was produced by David Guetta…”
Since early 2009, that was the goal – to create the perfect blend of authentic British guitar music with mainstream dance and pop. And now, 2 years later, it’s finally ready to go public.
_G_R_O_V_E_R_ is the solo project of UK-based pop and rock producer James Grover. After playing hundreds of shows across the UK, Europe and the US with his band Broadway's Not Ready between 2005 and 2008, he started to pursue new avenues of songwriting and music production, covering genres from dance and pop to indie rock and electro.
Planned for release this summer, GROVER’s first mainstream solo album, "THE DAYDREAM (life in the clouds)", is the culmination of this effort.
Unusually for the pop genre, it is a loosely-based concept album, spanning the course of an imagined relationship through a series of daydreams, bookended by the real-world narrative of the opening and closing tracks.
Entirely self produced, final mixing began on the album in January 2011, and 4 preview tracks were released to the public on 12th March 2011, to strong positive feedback.
Now in talks over management and distribution, _G_R_O_V_E_R_ will be hitting the road and the radio hard this summer.
