Biography

For some musicians and bands, the pursuit of a big time record deal becomes their reason for being. For others, the passion and belief in the writing is so strong that the actual listener is forgotten. For The Covers, a new project featuring Paul Gross (former Silverleaf singer) and Matt Radliff (former Silverleaf bass player), it really comes down to one simple concept: Fun!

For over 7 years, Paul and Matt have been at the forefront of the Houston music scene and developed a loyal following with Silverleaf. Performing in front of thousands at such venues as Reliant Stadium (home of the Houston Texans), Minute Maid Park (home of the Houston Astros), and Toyota Center, and opening for the likes of Fuel, Puddle of Mudd, and Blue October, Paul and Matt clearly understand what it takes to entertain.
Along with local and regional success, Paul and Matt led Silverleaf to national recognition with an exclusive Budweiser True Music sponsorship and features in both Rolling Stone and Vanity Fair magazines, recognizing them as one of the top unsigned bands in the country.

Through all the successes, Silverleaf decided in September 2007 that the time was right to close the chapter on what had been a truly amazing ride. Now, a new project, a new chapter, a new experience begins! The Covers. A complete change in direction from anything Paul and Matt have ever done. A simple stripped down performance of an array of great cover songs, and a few brand new songs for good measure. Simple, laid back and most importantly, fun!

Look for The Covers to be performing in early 2008!
