Album of the week: Olly Murs "Olly Murs"


After his 2 hit singles “Please Don`t Le Me Go” and “Thinking Of Me”, british singer Olly Murs is here with his debut album.  Olly, who is of Latvian descent, is from Witham, Essex and took part in the 6th series of X-Factor in the UK where he came second. His smile is very contagious and his voice is very nice and reminds me of Will Young`s voice a lot.

The album starts with a George Michael kind of “Faith” song, called “Change Is Gonna Come”, excellent pop. After the 2 singles you get lots of other great pop songs like “I Blame Hollywood”, “Hold On” and the great “A Million More Years”.

The album is a great mix of pop and reggae and soul tunes. It is great to see that Olly and his production and songwriter team took a long time before releasing his debut album. The album has more a summer than a winter sound, which is even better to get warm feelings this winter. Well done Olly!

Olly Murs will tour the UK in April and May 2011.
