Mike Pender original voice of The Searchers


Mike Pender is the original voice of The Searchers. One of the greats to have come out of the Liverpool “Beat Boom”. His is the rich vocal talent so evident on so many of the Hit recordings that have become 60’s classics. Everybody – even if they only have a passing interest in 60’s Music, remembers “Needles and Pins” – one of the greatest ever records to come out of the greatest ever period in Pop Music History! There were, of course, many other ‘Hit’ recordings that feature not only Mike’s vocals, but also his equally distinctive 12-string ‘jangly’ guitar sound that became such a feature of The Searchers’ recordings. With over 50 years of success in the business Mike is still touring worldwide performing The Searchers million selling hits such as Sugar and Spice, Sweets For My Sweet, Don’t Throw Your Love Away, When You Walk In The Room and of course Needles and Pins.
