GUITAR CENTER PRESENTS COVER ME PROGRAM
UNDERWAY NOW TO WIN STUDIO TIME WITH THE GROUP AND OTHER PRIZES
As the June 3 release date for ACOUSTIC II¸ ABOVE & BEYOND’s side project quickly approaches, the trio–Jono Grant, Tony McGuinness and Paavo Siljamäki-have made available another selection from the album with “No One On Earth.”  The song–an ABOVE & BEYOND classic written and performed with Faithless’ Zoë Johnston–has been reimagined as a smooth jazz number with brass and a downtempo beat.
“In 2004, in a very lonely and introspective phase of life, I went up to my attic studio with a CD of music I’d got in the post from three guys called ‘Above & Beyond,'” says Johnston. “I wrote and recorded until 4am, dreaming of aliens coming to rescue me and take me to a humanless planet of intrigue and beauty for a little heart repairing session. We all want to go there sometimes, don’t we? It turned out that this song was the start of a beautiful 12 year adventure with Tony, Paavo and Jono. I’m really fond of it.”
Meanwhile, now through June 30,  unsigned artists across the country can submit their cover of ABOVE & BEYOND‘s 2015 hit“Blue Sky Action” (which also appears on ACOUSTIC II) for Guitar Center presents Cover Me, an artist discovery program offering aspiring musicians the chance to take their careers to the next level. The program embodies Guitar Center’s mission to support emerging musicians and present undiscovered artists with a shot at their big break. Submissions will be ranked on their social media engagement and fan growth throughout the submission period.   The top-ranked 100 artists will be reviewed by ABOVE & BEYOND.  In turn they will  then handpick the winner who will receive studio time with the group in Las Vegas, NV, new gear from Pioneer, Roland, Sennheiser, Marq Lighting, QSC and 8DIO, as well as $10,000 cash.   More info can be found at: guitarcenter.com/aboveandbeyond.
ABOVE & BEYOND are a phenomenon unlike any other in dance music. The Grammy-nominated producers are the only British dance act to sell out Madison Square Garden, and now with an 18-piece band set up are in the middle of their sold-out tour of the world’s most iconic concert halls including Sydney Opera House and Northern California’s Greek Theatre amongst others in support of ACOUSTIC II.  They will also appear at the Hollywood Bowl on May 28 to perform a sold-out show accompanied by a 34-piece orchestra. Original vocalists Zoë Johnston and Justine Suissa are joined by newcomers Natalie Holmes and Cobi, while JONO, TONY and PAAVO reach back into their own individual musical histories to perform different parts of the arrangements, including JONO on Rhodes, TONY on guitarand vocals, and PAAVO on piano at all shows.

About Above & Beyond

While their famed club mixes have resonated with the dance generation, the songs behind them have touched fans of all ages across the globe. As influenced as much by Jeff Buckley or Bon Iver as they are by their deep love of electronic music, Above & Beyond’s songs and lyrics have been sung back to them at the world’s biggest stadiums and stages – from Alexandra Palace, to Madison Square Garden, to LA’s Forum, to their famed one million people gig at Barra Beach in Rio de Janeiro in 2007.
