Powerful. Melodic. Edgy. Female-fronted Indie Rock performed with grit and soul.
Fusing their musical experiences and an eclectic mix of influences, Carley Phillips (Vocals) and Matt Phillips (Guitar) formed SilverSpark as a Duo in November 2011. Their first songs were inspired by real life frustrations, elations and experiences.
What transpired were songs like 'The Thief', an anthemic ballad about a journey from heartache and desperation, through to redemption and hope. Songs like 'Something About You', a feel-good track about finding light in emotional darkness....through to the pacy 'Light The Fuse', an edgy, attention-grabbing statement of intent, about taking a tense decision and watching the sparks fly!
Performing small intimate acoustic gigs to enthusiastic crowds, strengthended their resolve not only as songwriters, but also performers - Carley's distinctive vocals are sweet, soulful and powerful, paired with Matt's creative guitar work.
The pair wrote, recorded and produced a promotional E.P. of their first tracks in a small home studio to an encouraging response. Having honed their sound and with new material, they gained momentum with airplay from numerous independent and underground radio stations, wth interviews and broadcasts being aired in the UK, USA and across the globe.
With growing demand and a burning desire to take SilverSpark on the road, the duo expanded in 2013 to become a 4-piece with a talented, driving rhythm section.
Carley Phillips - Lead Vocals/Piano
Matt Phillips - Guitars/Backing Vocals
Matt 'Hewey' Hewitson - Drums

The band recorded their debut album "Flames Run Deep" (independently released May 2014), and are working hard to share their music with the world, and building their fanbase whilst playing a number of live shows across the UK
