The Heavy Biography

After growing up trading Reggae, hip-hop and Soul records, vocalist Kelvin Swaby and guitarist Dan Taylor decided to take their tuneful infatuation one step further and jam. Based in Bath, ENGLAND, the two recruited keyboardist Hannah Collins, bassist Spencer Page and drummer Chris Ellul and called themselves The Heavy. After booking some gigs, the Alternative Soul-Rock quintet signed to the independent label Counter Records, an imprint of Ninja Tune.

In September 2007 The Heavy released its debut album, "Great Vengeance And Furious Fire", but soon after Collins left the fold.

Now operating as a four-piece the group issued their sophomore album, "The House That Dirt Built", in October 2009. The band's big break in U.S. came in early 2010 when they appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman.

In August 2012 The Heavy returned with "The Glorious Dead", a full-length album which includes the Alternative Rock top 40 hit "What Makes A Good Man".
