Fourth Member

Bio

Fourth Member are the classic story of a small town band that took their big rock sound to the big city.

Mike, John and Scott have been living in each others back pockets for over 18 years. With such a strong friendship, it made sense to form a rock band.

With in the space of just over a year, Fourth Member have taken there e-mail fanbase to 750, produced and recorded a 3 track CD, released a self funded music video which featured on 2 Music TV channels, got a write up in NZ’s premier music mag Rip It Up, organized their own North Island tour of NZ and received an invite to tour the world with a triple platinum selling NZ artist! Having seen all this good work, companies like Globe, Dirty Dog Eyewear and Jansen have sponsored Fourth Member to capitalize on their rising success and attention. During this time Fourth Member also released their first single 'Sunsets' to radio and TV, the single went to Number 1 on a prominent NZ music website….and the story continues on.

When music fans first hear Fourth Member, many cannot believe that it’s a three piece that they are listening to. With the grunt filled sound projected to the fans and the energy onstage, Fourth Member take three-piece rock to searing new heights.

Fourth Member have now disbanded, playing their final gig at Parachute 06.

Band Members:
John Espin (vocals, bass)
Mike Barry (guitar)
Scott Ogilvy (drums)

'Sunsets' to be used in nationwide Suzuki Radio campaign
Posted: Wed Sep 15, 2004 7:22 pm
Suzuki New Zealand have picked up Fourth Members first pop/rock single 'Sunsets' as a theme song for their next nationwide radio ad campaign.

This is great news for the guys who have put alot of effort into marketing and gaining support from all non-musical sources ,this will also generate alot of exposure for their music.
