In 2010, the quartet were signed to Sony Records for a Christmas CD. They changed their name to "The Great British Barbershop Boys" .....

Barbershop Quartetting, quite possibly the earliest form of boy band music, is making a big come back, and four young men from the north of England who go by the name The Great British Barbershop Boys are leading the way.

Within nine months of the quartet forming, the boys were made British Quartet champions, and by October 2008 they also added the inaugural British Collegiate Quartet title to their ever-growing list of accomplishments.

The group's enthusiasm, singing and high quality performances have seen the Quartet appear live on BBC1 Television, Christmas fundraisers for the Roald Dahl Foundation and for the Salvation Army at the Royal Albert Hall. However; their biggest performing accomplishment yet was performing live on a Sunday Night at the London Palladium.
