Interview with singer Sean Rumsey about his EP launch & ahead of tonight's gig in Stratford
We talk to Sean about his musical career, forth coming gigs & the launch of his new EP 'Alive' that can be found at https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/alive-ep/id912427407
Sean Rumsey first rose to fame when he auditioned for X Factor in 2007. He made it through to boot camp but was told he hadn't made it any further. Louis Walsh came up with the idea to create a girl group and a boy band with 6 girls and 6 guys. Sean was placed in boy band Futureproof who went onto Simon's home, they then made it to Simon's final three and went through to the live shows. They were unfortunately voted off the show in week 3, the band then split up after a short while.
Sean also made it big on BBC1 The Voice.
Sean has now spent the past few years building up a solo career. He regularly posts videos on his YouTube channel @seanrumsey which has over 20 thousand followers and over 2 million views. He has covered songs by artists such as Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Chris Brown, Tinie Tempah, Taio Cruz, B.o.B, Amy Winehouse and many more. He also has some live original tracks on youtube which are absolutely amazing songs. I've been lucky enough to see him perform them in person!
Sean now has an online mixtape of some of his most popular covers, which is available on: http://www.seanrumsey.bandcamp.com
His mixtape received a fantastic review from OK! Magazine, which gave him 4 out of 5 stars and said he improves on the originals! Make sure you check it out!
