One of Cornwall's most popular bands, Even Nine, have just released their new album ' No Heroes Anymore'.

Proving the title wrong, it is indeed a heroic effort to capture their powerful live sound and bring it kicking, screaming and, at times, soothing into your living room.

Featuring 12 brand new tracks the new album sees the band harden their sound on a collection that should appeal to hard rock fans everywhere.

Highlights include 'Ignition', their most accomplished song yet and the sort of riffing rocker that you wouldn't be surprised to see credited to Dave Grohl.

'Save Yourself' is another soaring blast featuring a blistering Led Zep/Soundgarden guitar line topped with Jody Martin's impassioned rock croon.

The anthemic 'Worn Thin' could be their mobile phones aloft moment, while the devastating balladry of 'Nowhere Man' is a perfect ending.

Jody, his brother Rick Martin and drummer Brett Stepto have delivered what they have always promised - a powerful rock record. - West Briton


...Jody has the crowd in the palm of his hands using every spare inch of the stage available to him... most songs infused with a chorus to die for.

The band and crowd truly look to be enjoying themselves, as potential hit after hit rolls past.

These guys seem destined for success...be sure to catch them. - Seven Magazine


Even Nine, fronted by Jody Martin, broke onto the stage with their usual enthusiasm for pleasing the crowds that now flock to see them. Eager not to disappoint their ever growing fan base with their opening song ' In and Around' they drew the crowd in as they played their frist few songs back to back, bridged by Brett's drum solo breaks and Jody's winning smile, this band truly are a joy to watch.

Not only are they easy on the eyes and ears but these guys share a stage presence rarely seen in bands today.

A must see band and one to watch closely. - Upfront

Bio

Even Nine was formed in late 2002 when brothers Jody and Rick Martin met up with Brett Stepto. Realising they all shared the same musical loves and ambitions, they set about writing and recording songs that include heartfelt, inspired vocals underpinned by a modern rock sound tinged with elements of pop, jazz and blues.

In early 2004 Even Nine released their self titled EP, receiving rave reviews. The EP sold in excess of two thousand copies. The band spent the remainder of 2004 playing gigs throughout Cornwall, Devon, Wales and London, generating more great reviews for their captivating live shows. Regular airplay, interviews and acoustic sessions on local radio (BBC Radio Cornwall, Pirate FM, Armada FM) helped feed a growing interest in the band. 2004 also saw the band appear on the Animal Beach Ball Tour and perform shows with the likes of ‘Fun Lovin’ Criminals’ and ‘Reef’.

Their second EP’ feed’ was released in August 2005, reinforced with yet more positive reviews and sales.
A combination of radio support and constant playing and touring, including shows with the likes of ‘Rooster’ and ‘Lucie Silvas’ and an open air performance in London’s Covent Garden, saw the band’s profile and fan base grow rapidly.

2006 saw the band tipped by the music industry trade magazine Music Week as one of the ‘hottest unsigned bands’. The year was spent playing extensively around the UK. A slot on the bill at the prestigious Rock Meets Blues festival alongside ‘Dr. John’ and ‘The Blind Boys of Alabama’ in front of 10,000 people was a highlight of the summer and confirmed that Even Nine’s live performance can capture people on both large settings and more intimate club gigs. Another support slot with ‘Rooster’, in October, helped propel Even Nine’s growing fan base further still.
In November 2006 Even Nine won a text competition to support Thunder on their UK tour. The shows were a great success and achievement for the band and all who voted for them. Further confirming Even Nine’s presence and ability to perform and entertain on a larger setting.

Spring 2007, and Even Nine set off for their second UK tour, yet another great success taking the band all over the UK and capitalizing on their recent high profile support slots and increasing their following to a now nationwide level.
The remainder of 2007 was spent writing songs for their first full length album while they honed and tried out new tunes at gigs throughout their native South-West. The band entered The Cube recording studio in Cornwall during the winter and after deciding upon 12 songs chosen from all the new material, set about recording them with the help of co-producer Gareth Young.

‘No Heroes Anymore’ was the end result. After being mixed and then sent off to Sterling Sound in New York to be mastered veteran engineer Chris Athens, the album was released both as CD and download on 28th July 2008.
Even Nine once again set upon touring throughout the UK and promoting their album, racking up hugely successful album sales and glowing reviews and also seeing the band undertake their first ever acoustic tour throughout the South West.

Early 2009 saw the sudden departure of bass player Greg Godding, and Jody, Rick and Brett deciding to continue Even Nine as a 3 piece with Jody now playing bass as well as handling lead vocals. Refreshed after months of writing, rehearsing and shaping their new dynamic as a 3 piece, the band are set to spend 2010 back out playing, touring and continuing to spread their infectious love of music and distinct powerful sound.
