What to hear a clip of the Eurovision song?

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

Justin Hawkins is best known to most as the former lead singer and guitarist from multi award-winning rock band The Darkness. His soaring falsetto lead the group to major chart success with a string of top ten hits and two platinum albums in the UK as well as three Brit awards in 2004 for Best Act, Best Rock Act and Best Album for Permission to Land. And then he left.

In 2005 Justin set up a solo project, called British Whale. His debut single, ‘This Town Ain't Big Enough For Both of Us’, a cover of the 1974 hit by Sparks, was released on August 15th 2005 and reached number six on the UK Singles Chart.

Whilst enjoying a long sabbatical, Justin came up with a song idea for a duet. He invited long term friend and vocalist Beverlei Brown to come along to the studio to try it out. There was an instant chemistry and "They Don't Make 'Em Like They Used To" is the result of the collaboration.

Hailing from the Midlands, Beverlei has worked as a professional singer alongside many top names in the industry including Chaka Khan, Blur, Jamiroquai, Lemar, Joe Cocker and Razorlight. She is considered to be one of the finest vocalists around. Although Justin and Beverlei are both currently unsigned to any record label, this track is destined to appear on a future Beverlei Brown album.

Justin continues to write and record new songs for his solo project and is looking to produce music for film and television. On signing up for Eurovision: Making Your Mind Up, Justin said: “It’s a boy's dream to represent the country at the highest level, but if we don't make it through to the final I won't be too disheartened, there's always next year."
