About Olly Murs
British ‘X Factor’ project has already allowed more than one talented performers to become known across the whole country, and it not necessary to occupy the first place, because a huge audience watch live performance each season. In 2009, as usual, there were several notable personalities at the audition, among whom was Oliver Stanley Murs, who introduced himself as Olly Murs. As a result, he reached the finals and lost only to a brilliant singer Joe McElderry.
Runner-up Olly Murs was already thinking about his debut album, a recording of which started from the end of the tour with all the participants of the sixth season. Finally, in 2010, his self-titled debut album went out. It was focused on all the good qualities of Murs from the impressive vocals to daring and humorous lyrics and melodies, written partially by the singer. A promising debut, and just interesting and sparkling album, once again showed how important and necessary it is to develop your talent, believe in yourself, and never pass by appropriate means.
Unlike many of the project participants, Olly decided to show himself to the public only at 25, allowing himself to feel confident throughout the show. From the very beginning, he conquered the judges with his unusual dance moves, looseness, and voice. The first singles “Please Do not Let Me Go” and “Thinking of Me” became the favorite songs of the British, filling the radio broadcast with sensuality combined with impudence. On the disc, they are preceded by the composition “Change Is Gonna Come”, which is arranged perfectly. “Accidental” song is a very sincere and humble way to confess about your love to a girl, while the “Do not Say Goodbye” is a classic pop ballad filled with despair and fear of being alone. The album is closed with a slow song “A Million More Years”, built on spiritual accompaniment of piano and strings, praising love again and again.
