This 'Have You Heard' is a bit different to previous ones. The other week I was contacted by Tribal Media with news of an up and coming band who were given the chance to perform at Capital FM's Summertime Ball. Only the Young were chosen by the public to live their Vodafone #first dream to perform in front of 80,000 people the other weekend. To find out more about their story click here.

Only the Young is an increasingly popular band which consists of Mike, Parisa, Betsy and Charlie. They are strongly influenced by bands like McFly and One Republic and plan on producing similar music. From what I've heard of them, they are a seriously talented and charismatic bunch. They have done some awesome covers -I really enjoyed their Counting Stars and Wrecking Ball Mash-up. Their big break was the at the Capital FM's Summertime Ball in which this music video was created. A lot of the content comes from the public's smartphones and tablets, making the fans feel a part of the story.
This band is definitely one to watch. I'm expecting to hear lots about them in the next few months! What do you think of Only the Young? If you have any suggestions for this series, please get in touch <3
