Biography

Spoonfeedas began their musical journey in the year 2000
when four neighborhood friends namely Peter Guthrie, John
Reardon, Colin Browne, and Elton Besson decided to put a rock band together. A few short weeks later, they entered a small
recording studio not far from home and recorded their first three
songs. The demo was sent in to a national radio station and began
getting regular daytime airplay. One of the tracks was selected
over 300 other submissions to feature on a compilation album of
the top South African unsigned bands and the track ‘King With A
Crown’ was an instant success, climbing to number 7 on the top
40. They were chosen to appear in an evening slot on the main
stage at one of the country’s biggest music festivals and performed
for their first crowd of over 8000 people, only four months after
their conception.
Spoonfeedas promptly entered the same studio to record a full
album of 11 original compositions. Financing it themselves, they
were given a tight deadline to record their songs and did so with
proficiency usually seen only in seasoned studio musicians. The
band obtained their first number 1 single off their debut album
‘True North’ which also spawned no less than six more singles
over the following three years and marked the bands certain
arrival on to the music scene. The album was named ‘CD Of The
Month’ in FHM magazine and attracted various sponsorships as
well as a full endorsement by Yamaha SA, which sposored the
band all new instruments and a sound rig. Spoonfeedas were now
being recognised as master songwriters in their genre and they
started drawing more and more people to their live shows. As they
embarked on several tours around the country, they also started to
attract various record labels and managers.
For the next album, they signed up to an enthusiastic independent
label and promptly entered the recording studio. The result was
the second album entitled ‘Falling Higher’. The follow up to the
band’s debut was met with open arms by the public and spawned
the number 1 hit singles ‘So I Wait’ and the title track ‘Falling
Higher’.

Moving forward to the year 2008, Spoonfeedas have an impressive
list of achievements under their belt. Most notably, they have played
alongside acts such as Collective Soul, Metallica, Simple Plan and
The Rasmus as well as opening for Ronan Keating on his South
African tour. More recently they were invited to perform at the Dubai
Desert Rock festival in support of Muse and Velvet Revolver. 2008
has also seen Spoonfeedas sign some fairly lucrative publishing
deals with brands such as Radox, Yamaha and Supersport to write
and record theme songs and soundtracks for their television adverts
and sports programmes, based on their constant radio presence.
SpoonFeedas is now recognised as one of the hardest working
bands in the country by touring relentlessly and continously writing
and recording new songs. The band is made up of 4 level headed
guys hungry for the next step in their musical careers, they hold the
rights to all their music and publishing, and are positive about the
future. They are in the final stages of recording their third album
in their own recording studio and are currently on the hunt for
international representation.
