Vega4 Biography

Vega4 was a four-piece alternative rock band formed in London. Johnny McDaid was the band's lead vocalist and songwriter, joined on guitar by Bruce Gainsford. Gavin Fox was the band's bassist and Bryan McLellan the drummer.

McDaid is from Northern Ireland and Fox is from Ireland, McLellan is from Canada and Gainsford is from New Zealand. Vega4 was signed to Columbia Records in the UK, Epic Records in the US, and produced two albums, You and Others produced by Jacknife Lee (U2, Snow Patrol, Bloc Party) and "Satellites" produced by Ron Aniello. The band played at the 2007 SXSW festival.

Gavin Fox, formerly of the band Idlewild, joined Vega4 in December 2006 when bassist Simon Walker left.

Vega4 premiered in the United States when its single "Life Is Beautiful" was featured in an episode of Grey's Anatomy and in the One Tree Hill episode, "Prom Night at Hater High".

Vega4's song "You and Me" was used by RTE 2fm to re-launch the station's new look and lineup. The band completed its first US tour in April 2007 in San Diego, California. Vega4 had been touring with Augustana for the previous several weeks. The band received much media attention in the US, with major radio support for "Life Is Beautiful" and the rumors of Gainsford's on-again, off-again romance with Scarlett Johansson. The band disbanded in 2008.

"Life is Beautiful" also featured in the 2010 film Streetdance, and previously in 2008's comedy film, Sex Drive.
