Brian Harvey( 8 August 1974 - Present )
Brian Lee Harvey is an English musician and was the lead singer of pop band East 17, later renamed E-17.
Harvey was born in Walthamstow, London. He was initially slated to be a backup singer and dancer for East 17, but during the initial recording session he was heard singing along by the recording staff and was promptly instated as the lead singer of the band.
Harvey's vocal style emulated R&B and new jack swing vocalists from the United States. His vocals put him into a position of the band's frontman, or main member, which was shared with the band's creator, songwriter, instrumentalist, rapper and singer Tony Mortimer.
Throughout the course of the band's career, Harvey and Mortimer had many disagreements, ranging from how to vocalise songs to their behaviour in public.
