7th Heaven (band)

7th heaven is a Chicago, Illinois-based rock band created by guitarist Richie Hofherr, Tony Di Giulio and Michael Mooshey. Formed in 1985, it has continued up to present day with changing band members.

7th heaven was managed by Alec John Such of Bon Jovi and James Young of Styx in 1997-1998. 7th heaven is currently managed by NTD Management, which also manages such bands as "1 Speed Go" & HiFi Superstar. They are signed to NTD Records, writing over 3000 songs by now, doing many shows and selling 25,000 CDs to date. Their acclaimed Silver 30-tracks double CD released in 2004 has been a very popular favourite release.[1][2][3]

The title of their 2008 release 14-track album USA-UK' comes from joining of the Northern Ireland singer, Keith Semple joining the American AOR band.[4] Semple had won Popstars: The Rivals a UK singing competition and had become a member of boy band One True Voice during the period 2002-2003, before the band broke up. Semple had a gold record with One True Voice mainly through their double A side hit Sacred Trust/After You're Gone[5] that had reached #2 in the British music charts.

The band is preparing an old release in 2010 entitled "Jukebox" on the occasion of the band's 25 years.[6]
