GRAMMY Camp reporter Christine Jamra caught up with Danny Bemrose and Stuart Nichols, two-fifths of the Brit band Scars on 45, at GRAMMY Camp - Soundcheck to interview the band about their 'Heart On Fire' EP released on October 24th, their dream collaboration, Adele.
The band caught a major break recently when their song, 'Heart on Fire' was used in the season premiere episode of 'Grey's Anatomy,' which is overseen by Alexandra Patsavas, who also picks music for the 'Twilight' movies.
"The name [Scars on 45] came from an interview that we read with Emmylou Harris," Stuart said. "She said that when she was younger, she listened to her dad's vinyl and she scratched them so much that he accused her of getting scars on his 45s."
The band has been in the U.S. for a year now touring with bands like Jack's Mannequin and their advice for teens who want to be musicians is to never give up.
"I'd probably tell young people, just believe that if you want to be a musician, go and do it," Danny said. "Don't let anybody stop you doing it."
