Everything but the Girl (often shortened EBTG) is a two-person English band, currently inactive, and formed in Hull during 1981, consisting of lead singer and occasional guitarist Tracey Thorn (born 26 September 1962) and guitarist, keyboardist, and singer Ben Watt (born 6 December 1962).
Watt and Thorn are also a couple; they are very private about their relationship and personal life. It was not a publicised fact for some time that they were a couple, or that they had married subsequently.The duo have professed a strong desire to raise their three children with as much privacy as possible.
When Thorn and Watt met, they were both attending theUniversity of Hull, and both had contracted with theindependent record company, Cherry Red Records, as soloartists. Thorn was also a member of the trio, Marine Girls, and Watt contributed a photograph to the cover of their first album, Lazy Ways. The pair each had solo album releases through Cherry Red: Thorn's 1982 LP was A Distant Shore, an eight-track mini-album. Watt's LP was entitledNorth Marine Drive.
They formed a duo and adopted their name 'Everything but the Girl' from the slogan of well-known Hull shop, Turners' " Furniture, on Beverley Road. The store had originally built a window sign that read, "for your bedroom needs, we sell everything but the girl,"the last part of which was later added to the shop's main signage.
