Over The Wall are a pop-rock-folk band based in Glasgow, Scotland. The outfit consists of multi-instrumentalists Ben Hillman and Gav Prentice, a line-up that has remained unaltered since its 2006 formation.
Prentice and Hillman met in student halls as freshers at the University of Glasgow, and began running a regular music evening at the old Stereo bar (now a vegetarian establishment called The 78), on Kelvinhaugh Street in the West End. Having performed both individually and with various friends at these events, the pair soon began collaborating as a duo, and quickly found their idiosyncratic-yet-natural niche: euphoric, folk-tinged pop music. The name 'Over The Wall' was taken from a now-defunct fanzine of Prentice's favoured football team Albion Rovers.
In 2007 the band were selected from over 1,200 unsigned acts to perform at Scotland's largest music festival, T In The Park. In 2008 they beat off competition from 800 hopefulsЧитать далее в Википедии...
