Newcastle-based band SOLVER is ready to rock into the big time after 5 years of unrelenting gigging, writing and recording.

 

Guitarist and lead singer Morgan Evans, 19, his brother Tom, 17, on bass guitar and backing vocals, and Nick Cook, 19, on drums have established a strong and loyal local following.

 

This energetic and talented trio have already racked up some pretty impressive achievements. They were the state winners of Youthrock in 2002 and won Youthrock Best Original Song Award the same year.

 

SOLVER 's other successes include winning Best Young Talent in the ABC Newcastle Music Awards in 2002 as well as claiming Best Male Vocal, Best Young Talent and Artist of the Year at the same awards in 2004. Winning the Arrive Alive songwriting competition, saw Solver play to 28 000 people at an NRL semi-final.

 

They performed in the 2003 and 2004 Schools Spectaculars at Sydney Entertainment Centre to audiences in excess of 28 000 each year. In 2004 Solver performed their track ‘One Step Too Far' accompanied by an 80-piece orchestra. The band was featured on ABC TV's national telecast of the show both years. Other Television appearances have included an interview on ABC's Fly TV and a performance of their song Fallin' on Channel 7's K-Zone program.

 

The boys have just finished recording a 4-Tracks with acclaimed Australian producer Phil McKellar.

 

Morgan, Tom and Nick say they are prepared to do the hard yards for success in the music industry - and do it because they love it. Their rapidly-growing band of fans is testament to their talent and dedication.
