One of my favourite acts on the UK scene is Gasoline and Matches. They are fantastic in a live setting both backed by a band or acoustically in a writers round scenario. With great songs that have the seal of approval from some of country music’s finest (Chris Young downloaded their first single ‘Fools Gold’ when they met in Nashville) Gasoline and Matches are a duo that’s going far, both in the British scene and beyond!
First song you learnt all the words to?
Steve: For me, it was Michael Jackson ‘Thriller’. I think that was the first LP record I ever had and I love that song. I used to dance to it as a kid.
Sally: If I’m going back that far, it would have been something like Spice Girls. I think my first favourite pop band was S Club 7. So I reckon it would have been ‘Bring It All Back’ or something like that. I could still sing all the words now to you.
A song that makes you think of touring?
Steve: Charles Kelly – ‘The Driver’
Sally: For me a good driving song would always be something by Brothers Osborne. I listen to their first album, ‘Pawn Shop’ on repeat in my car.
