Chad Stuart (10 December 1943, Durham, England; vocals, guitar, banjo, keyboards, sitar) and Jeremy Clyde (b. 22 March 1944, Buckinghamshire, England; vocals, guitar) met as students at Londons Central School of Speech and Drama and soon began performing together with Stuart providing the musical accompaniment to Clydes lyrics. Their early releases for the Ember label offered a brand of folk-influenced pop similar to that of Peter And Gordon, but the duo was unable to make commercial inroads in the UK. However, their quintessential Englishness inspired four US Top 30 hits, including Yesterdays Gone and A Summer Song the latter of which reached number 7.
