American born David Saylor moved to the UK in the early 80’s. Young and ambitious in mind, David started searching to find the same level-headed musicians as himself to form a band. David was directed to the now defunct legendary Central Studios in Birmingham city centre where bands and artistes like Robin George, Tony Martin, Tobruk, Shy and Magnum all recorded and demoed there. Upon his arrival David was sent to room 4 of Central Studios where he was to be introduced to Paul Pryor, Brett Hammond and Rob Hewins, who themselves were incidentally pursuing the position for a vocalist. Understanding similar musical ideas now cemented all four together to become Push UK.Already having some experience under their belt Brett Hammond, guitars and keyboards and bassist Paul Pryor played in the band Orion in 1982 with singer Tony Martin who later joined (Black Sabbath) and on the same bill supported Motorhead and Twisted Sister (on their first ever UK tour!).The next 2 years saw Push UK perfecting writing songs and playing live. It was during this period that there was major label interest. Showcased at Rich Bitch Studios an additional guitarist Nik Lloyd was to join the band (who had worked with Brett and Paul in Orion) which freed up the talents of Brett to multitask playing keyboards and guitar. With this line up Push UK performed for CBS, Island, Virgin and RCA. It was the same CBS executives who signed top UK AOR band FM. High in enthusiasm had taken the band to positive new heights but what was to follow was the come-down effect and disappointment due to frustrating and tiring negotiations from the band’s management. The end result led to the failure of a much deserved recording contract.Push UK had by then recorded and demoed a mix of 12 songs by 1987. A point of interest, Tony Mills (Shy and TNT) stepped in for a short stint as vocalist when David had other commitments for some live appearances. At the start of 1990 Push UK was no longer a band. Nik Lloyd had left prior to the band calling it quits but even today David, Brett, Rob and Paul all remain in contact and are close friends, working together. All four are still active in music and live work as well as playing together in various projects.
David pursued a solo career in the 1990’s pop market in the Spanish speaking countries achieving a good level of success. He has also worked with Enrique Iglesias and Ricky Martin. David contributed backing vocals to another UK AOR gem which was Atlantic-Power with Tony Mills. Also backing vocals on Siam Language of Menace. David continues to make solo albums and has also added to his musical CV songwriter and guitarist and producer.
In the mid 1990’s Brett decided to move to New York and with the band Bigmouth toured opening for UB40 and eventually getting signed to Wild Pitch Records a label out of New York better known for hip hop acts like Gangstarr. Bigmouth continued touring opening for Spacehog, The Presidents of the USA and Tracey Bonham. Finally after Bigmouth separated on a permanent hiatus Brett continues his work in music for film and TV as well as developing and producing many upcoming acts from New York and the UK.
Paul is now an established session Bass player, over the last two years he has worked with 30 different bands and artists including extensive UK tours with Ruby Turner as Musical Director, Jason Donovan and X Factor Finalists Journey south. Recent recording work includes Ruby Turners latest studio album. An example of other recent live work would be; Bens Brother, Alvin Stardust, Roy Gee of the Drifters, Brenda Edwards (X factor), Johnny Mars (American Blues Legend). Recent TV appearances include BBC Children in need, GMTV, ITV, This Morning, BBC news, and a ‘Cameo’ Appearance on the BBC drama ‘Hotel Babylon’. Over the years Paul has toured and recorded extensively with many artists including Roy Wood, Jackie Graham (as Musical Director). Recording work includes a worldwide Platinum album. His biggest TV appearance was in Russia that went out live to 350 Million People worldwide. .
Rob started out in Sidewinder in the early 80’s who got played on Radio One’s Tommy Vance Friday rock show. After Push UK Rob was offered the position of drummer in Ultravox but had to decline due to other musical projects. Rob has over the years crossed paths with David, Paul and Brett contributing in various music projects. Rob also played on tracks of Tony Mills, Siam Language of Menace and from 2005 to 2009 he played drums for Martin Turner Wishbone Ash. Rob also plays guitar and is a song writer as well as an established producer and sound engineer.
Nik was a member of quite a few local Brumrock Bands in the late 70's early 80's including Strider, Overdrive & Enigma. He joined forces with Brett & Paul in Orion when Tony Martin departed on his way to Black Sabbath. Tony Mills was the Vocalist at the time, he & Nik had played together in Overdrive. Orion evolved into Series Red, then Push as it stands today. In the last few years Nik has played with local Bands X-changed, Far Cry & Soul Mover/Black Country Community as well as doing some Session Work for various artists inc Dave Saylor's solo projects.
Former 80’s British band Push (UK) became the first band to be released on brand new label AOR BLVD Records. Push have a history that goes way back to the mid 80’s, when they were called Series Red. During the mid 80’s, Push (UK) had showcased to the likes of RCA, CBS, Island and Virgin Records.By 1987, they had recorded twelve demo tracks, but no one was buying. Shy vocalist Tony Mills sang briefly with the band, when Saylor was occupied with prior commitments elsewhere. Initially released under the title “Strange World” in 2010 the album has been completely facelifted with the addition of 6 bonus tracks. Music wise a must have for British AOR lovers into FM, AIRRACE & Co. Limited edition (500 copies)."Strange World" by Push UK was the first ever album to be released through British label AOR Boulevard and has become a genuine collector's item that demands high prices when being offered for sale on the internet. This got the label thinking it might not be such a bad move to give the album a second run but instead of merely re-releasing the disc they have re-mastered and re-packaged it while also adding 8 bonus tracks. Amongst the latter are 4 sparkling new recordings that show the guys still have it in them to come up with quality stuff and maybe we will get to welcome an album of all new songs sometime in the future.To many members of the AOR/melodic rock community, both professionals and fans, it remains a mystery why Push UK along with similar acts such as Voyager UK and Strutz, didn't get signed back in the day while lesser talented bands were offered a record deal. Because David Saylor and C° fell by the way side it wasn't always easy to get hold of their stuff and that's why when AOR Boulevard Records gave their demos an official release a couple of years ago the disc was quickly snapped up by 500 always hungry fans of the genre. This new version is also a strictly limited edition so don't wait too long to place your order when you missed out on it the first time around.But what exactly is the fuzz all about with Push UK? Why should you fork out the cash? Well, simply because the band produces the kind of sounds that will pull the rug out from under any fan of AOR/melodic rock and leave him/her flat on the back longing for more. Think Shy, FM, Dare, Strangeways and Heartland or lush keyboards, superb vocals and heavenly melodies to get the picture. Just how good the voice of mister Saylor is becomes clear on the gentle baladry of "Secret Lover" which is present here in its original version as well as in an unplugged one.The 4 new tracks have a bit more crunch to them when compared to the band's 80s output because the guitars take up a more prominent role but apart from that the combo stays true to the chosen musical path.With over 60 minutes of music "Future Into The Past" surely offers value for money but it might also start some of you thinking that maybe a number of songs included could be off lesser quality. But that is in my humble opinion not the case. Sure I have personal favorites like the highly contagious "Miracle Of Love", the soaring "Strange World" or the beautiful, keyboard laced "Hannah" but any lover of AOR/melodic rock can safely add this platter to the collection.
