Biography

(2009 – 2010)

Girls Can’t Catch were a British originally comprising Phoebe Brown, Daizy Agnew and Jess Stickley. All three girls were scouted by Polydor, and were then asked to be in a new girl band together.

Prior to the formation of Girls Can’t Catch, Brown was a member of Hope, a girl group which rose to fame on The X Factor. Hope made into the live shows, but were the seventh act eliminated (fifth place overall). Agnew, of MTV’s Urban Base, was voted as the winner of the original Hugo Urban Rules (2006) by US soul legend Jo, UK rapper Sway, and Terri Walker. She went on to work with Colin Emmanual (aka ‘C’ Swing) and Gerard Logan (aka SoundBwoy), and the 411’s Tisha Martin and Tanya Bonyface. In 2009, she was invited to compete in the Eurovision Song Contest, recording the original version of “My Time” with Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber and Diane Warren.

The group’s name was originally offered to The Saturdays, but the group turned it down. They first became known while performing as the opening act for Girls Aloud on their ‘Out of Control Tour’ in 2009. Their debut single entitled “Keep Your Head Up” was released August 2, 2009 and entered the UK singles chart at 26. They performed at the iTunes Festival, performing “Keep Your Head Up”, “Red” (Daniel Merriweather cover) and their second single “Echo”. Echo was originally scheduled for a November release, but was pushed back for unknown reasons, with a new release date of 18 January 2010. Phoebe Brown quit in 2010 to go to University. The group subsequently split.
