Hello all at SingPeace!
I guess the best way to introduce ourselves is to post our most recent biography, sorry if it seems a bit business-like, that's not our intention. We are always looking for ways to share our music and this certainly seems like a community of like-minded souls, who may well dig our vibe, so to speak.
So, thank you for having us. We hope we can join you on your pilgrimage for Peace, indeed we are also on that path, how wonderful it is that our paths have crossed.
We may live in the UK but we are willing to travel, and enjoy making connections all over the world.
Wishing you all Peace.
Please enjoy reading our biography ...
Heal the Last Stand – Biography 2013
“The 4 coolest musicians and peace troubadours to emerge from the UK in a very long time, with music that will change the world” – Mike Dooley (Author of “Infinite Possibilities” & “Notes from the Universe”)
From Wales in the UK, Joey, Laura, Stan and Thom make up the peaceful acoustic quartet known as Heal the Last Stand.
This Wrexham-born band, now in the 6th year of their Everlasting Peace Tour, continue to inspire and uplift audiences far and wide; their soaring harmonies and inspirational lyrics have earned them a place on the stages of Glastonbury Festival, Europe and the US.
From the outset Heal knew they wanted to be a force for good in the world and have always gone about business differently to most bands, finding work in the early days by offering their voices to peaceful causes. Pretty soon, Heal were invited to sing at the Global Peace Summit in Costa Rica. Initial apprehension about travel costs kept them from making that trip, but they quickly learned to say yes first and work out how to make it happen later and vowed never to let the odds defeat them again. This determination to ‘say yes and see where it takes them’ has been the catalyst for their subsequent adventures. Ultimately they attribute their success to the kindness and generosity of the friends they’ve met on the road.
After critics compared them to West Coast harmony bands like The Beach Boys and Crosby, Stills & Nash, Heal heard the call and crossed the ocean for a six-week dream tour of California, with a band they met through MySpace called Ecstatic Union. They took their music north on the Pacific Coast Highway stopping in Long Beach, Los Angeles, Venice, Santa Cruz, Big Sur and San Francisco to name a few. As well as the usual tour dates in theatres and bars, Heal reached out that little further, always armed with their guitars they played beach houses, street corners, beaches, roof tops and (the bands' favorite) on the public transport.
Back in Europe, they drove south on their third tour of Catalonia, taking time to record the video for their much loved song “Soul Shanti” over-looking the city lights of Barcelona from the top of Montjuïc, the city’s own Olympic hill (SEE THE VIDEO HERE).
Their efforts for Peace were recognized by the late Mayor of Wrexham, Arwel Gwynn Jones and the band were invited to tea in his parlour; he allowed them to place a copy of their album "What Love Is..." in a display cabinet full of local treasures and memorabilia, between a Ruabon Red Brick and a can of Wrexham Lager.
The band have released 2 CDs so far on their own record label, 'Everybody Wants Peace Records', their debut album, "What Love Is..." (2009) And an E.P called "Peace is the Word" (2010).
"Forgive & Forget" was picked as “Single of the Week” on BBC Wales' morning show.
Summer 2013 brings UK Festival appearances and a European Tour to promote a new single from their forthcoming Album OUT AUTUMN/WINTER 2013.
