From the X Factor live shows to the X Factor live tour proving why he deserved his place in the live finals gaining a great response from the audiences. 

Speaking to Music Promotions about the X Factor tour, plans after the tour, new music and more See the full interview below.

How is tour life treating you?

Tour life is good. We’ve got to play some amazing venues and some big crowds. It’s been incredible so far.


What have been the high lights for you so far? 

There’s been lots of highlights. It’s hard to describe really, because once you’re on stage, it’s hard to think at the same time. You’re living in the moment, so there’s been lots of highlights, but I’m very excited about playing in Ireland. That’s going to be good!


How would you sum up your X Factor journey? 

Very surreal and unpredictable. You don’t know what to expect from it and you don’t know what opportunities will come out of it. Not a lot of people get to do The X Factor and getting the chance to experience it is just incredible for anyone to do.


Who will you miss the most when the tour ends? 

I will miss everyone! Especially from the Tour, there’s been a lot of people that I’ve got to know even better than I did during the Live Shows, so I’m really going to miss everyone, but I’m sure we all meet up again.


What’s been your favourite song to perform on the tour?

My favourite song to perform is probably ‘Everybody Hurts’. It kind of goes back to Six Chairs and the fact that I’m doing it now every night. It feels a bit like it’s my own song if you know what I mean?


What kind of music can we expect from you? (Sound and style)  When do you hope to have your own music released be? 

I’m not sure of the style yet. I have a few things in mind and I have a lot of demos done, a lot of stuff recorded. I’m hoping to release it as soon as possible after the tour. I also have a few other bits and bobs coming up as well.


What is next for you after the X Factor tour ends? 

I want to gig. I would love to keep gigging. I want to keep putting out music, meeting up with people and see where it takes me.


Final messages? 

Thank you everyone for coming to the shows and supporting us!
