My The Overtones Story!
We asked you a while back to send in your story on how you discovered The Overtones and what their music means to you.
It took us a while to sort through them all, thank you so much for the overwhelming response!
We only picked one story that we will share in full with you, but that doesn’t make it anymore meaningful than the others, it just grabbed our attention a bit more.
You will find excerpts of a few more stories right after the featured one.
We hope you enjoy them as much as we did.
My name is Mario. I’m currently 22 and I live in Des Moines Iowa in the US. The way I discovered The Overtones was actually about a month ago, I was searching for the song “Can’t take my eyes off you” by Frankie Valli and I believe it was the 5th or 6th option on youtube.
I saw these 5 great looking guys all dressed up and i decided to give it a try, as soon as the song started i fell in love with theguys’ charm, i immediately sent the link to a few of my co-workers, after that i started listening to more song from The Overtones. I listened to Pretty Woman, Super Star, Loving the sound, Say what i feel, Second last chance and many more.
I love the beat of all of the guys’ songs and the guys’ voices and style it’s like the complete package. I went into my google play store since i own an android device to buy the guys’ albums but the only songs i found were a few Christmas songs, :( I actually went over my data limit since the only way for me to listen to your music was on youtube lol.
All of The Overtones’ songs put me in a great mood and i listen to them every morning on my way to work and also when im at work. You could even ask my girlfriend everytime we go some place in the care you best believe The Overtones are playing lol I even re-activated my Twitter account to see what theguys are up to, it’d be a pleasure to meet the guys one day but they are so far away, :( but.. I’m glad i discovered the guys!
Keep doing what your doing because you are all GREAT!!!!!!

“My Dad and I fell in love with five extremely talented voices after seeing them live in 2011 in Bristol! The best part of the evening was standing outside the venue meeting people that I would now call close friends! It was funny because we all just clicked and then when the overtones joined us it just felt like a big group of friends!
From that day onwards my love of the overtones grew! And there are thousands more stories to tell but that could go on forever!!!
I am always extremely appreciative of the lads and all the lovely supportive fan base.”

My husband Mike bought me VIP tickets to the Overtones Christmas Party at G-Live in Guildford, Surrey, in the UK after I had made such a great progress recovering from the stroke I suffered in June 2014.
So once again, we flew all the way from the United States to see “the boys” and this turned out to be the best night of my life. Although I was mostly in a wheelchair, I was at a stage where I could stand for a couple of minutes; I had been practicing standing and walking as I wanted to meet the guys while standing up.
They will never know how much that meant. I love the guys (and my husband Mike doesn’t have a problem with that, as their music and kind spirits have helped me so much in my recovery)!
Quite simply, the Overtones are my heroes

What does The Overtones Music mean to you?
“Their music means the world to me it picks me up when I’m feeling down, makes me want to dance before a night out, makes my little boy giggle and dance, and makes me zone out into another world and get lost in the music and their amazing voices.
My love for each of the boys is deep in my heart and no matter what they do together or on their own that will never change. Each and everyday I listen to their music and it makes the world a brighter place and puts a smile on my face and a spring in my step, their tweets also get me giggling night and day.”

“Ich ein großer Fan von den Jungs und ihnen auch gleichzeitig dankbar, den ihre Musik hat mir durch eine schwere Zeit geholfen und mir immer wieder neuen Mut gegeben. Dafür bin ich ihnen unendlich dankbar. Und da mir bis jetzt noch kein Album von ihnen nicht gefallen hat, bin ich mir sicher das ich noch lange Fan bleiben werde.”

“What does their music mean to me well……
EMOTIONS I have felt them all loved, sang along smiled , cried and felt very thoughtful listening to the lovely set of music we have…I have never got bored of listening to the boys. There songs and harmonies mean that my ears can be blessed with the sweetest sound wether I’m having good or bad times xx I can lose myself in their music .
It has also opened up me to chatting to lots of fellow toners and I really hope to meet some one day.”

“Me and mum have been hooked ever since that night in October 2010 and for me not only is it the boys music voices and personalities it’s the fact I get to share it all with my mum my best friend we try and see the boys whenever we can sometimes my job gets in the way but wherever we go we always have such a fun fantastic time and we have made some lovely friends along the way.”

“A Friend invited to my first The Overtones concert and I had the best night in a very long time. I sang, I danced and went home buzzing. Went out the very next day and bought Good ‘Ol Fashioned Love. Googled them and became a Toner. They were amazing, am so glad my friend won those tickets and introduced me to The Overtones. I’ve been a fan ever since and been to every concert (except the first one) as a VIP. Obviously I can’t wait for their next tour so I’m booked for a couple of one night gigs this year. Roll on the Tour!!”
‘The Overtones saved my music life.
For me the best thing about them is, unbelievably fantastic show! I believe nobody can’t help dropping their jaws !!
I also like each albums have totally different colours, but definitely the colour of TheOvertones!
I’m gonna enjoy every their performance from now on, even if it’s some genre I’ve never listened to. Really really love their style in everything!”

“Without them I would not have so many wonderful memories, found so many great and close friends and I would not have added more great music to the sound track of my life.”

I saw them perform their version of Sh-Boom on Daybreak or Gmtv or whatever it was called at the time back in 2010 and thought it was superb! As soon as I received The Overtones “Good Ol’ Fashioned Love” album, I was instantly hooked! I’m so glad I watched tv on that day as since then I’ve had many truly wonderful experiences, met new people from all over the world and made new friends. I also conquered my fear of travelling alone! (Yes really lol) What an amazing 5 or so years it’s been! And it’s all because of these 5 super talented boys and their incredible music.
