biography
4500 is a British alternative pop/rock duo formed in 1997 by Gavin Hardcastle and Rick Dowson. Based in both Canada and England. Their sound can be described as alternative pop rock and draws heavily on influences from both the 90’s grunge/hard rock scene and many of the British 80’s pop legends.

With a 4500 mile gap between them, the duo record some of their songs from their individual locations but mostly from their studio in the rainforests of Vancouver Island in British Columbia.



“I Am Ghost” is the first single from the CD of the same name which is due for release in March 2009. 4500 is currently in the studio working on the rest of the album.

In August of 2008 two good friends decided to buy a van, fill it with beer and candied salmon, 2 acoustic guitars and a tape recorder. They headed out to the remote but spectacular forbidden plateau on Vancouver Island with the sole purpose of writing the best songs that they could.

With jaw dropping mountain views for inspiration and the Eagles and Bears for company these two intrepid songwriters eventually put together a powerful arsenal of Pop Rock songs with titles like “I Am Ghost” and “If You Don’t Know Yet”.

Hi and welcome to the61! Very much enjoying your first tracks, cool sound you got going!

While I'm here ..... here's a few tips for the61 top if you like:

First of all, change the 61 logo with a pic of some sort as quickly as possible, gets people interested.

It's best to let the first three songs find listeners, fans and bumps before adding any more. That way the tracks don't compete with each other.
Not every listeners can bump every track because of the points cost, .so not having too many to choose from helps.

It may be tempting to add more tunes when you reach the next level, but please don't (that may sound strange but it works!) Don't delete any either though.

Once one or two have reached the homepage (patience may be needed on both sides) consider gradually adding one more at a time.

And you could consider opening a listener account to figure out how the site works from the other side so to speak.

Have fun, enjoy and good luck!
