Scouting for Girls is an English pop band consisting of life-long friends Roy Stride (Piano & Vocals), Peter Ellard (Drums & Vocals) and Greg Churchouse (Bass & Vocals).

Scouting for Girls: Formation & Rise to Fam.

Roy, Greg and Peter were old friends from Ruislip. Aged 14, Greg bullied Roy into getting an acoustic guitar for Christmas, instead of a Sega Megadrive. Greg and Roy attended their first ever gig together, to see Suede In Watford in 1995. At university, Roy and Greg were briefly in a band named Cape.

With Roy swapping from guitar to piano, Scouting for Girls was born and the band started to put on gigs in a room above a pub in Harrow, London.

The band's name was chosen in reference to the Scouts handbook Scouting for Boys, first published in 1908.

The band has built up a fan base since their formation in 2005, via websites such as MySpace and Pulse Rated, for unsigned bands.

In February 2007, the band signed to Epic UK (part of Sony BMG), after the head of the label was invited to one of the band's rehearsals. Their debut EP, It's Not About You, became the highest charting limited edition EP in UK chart history.
