CONCERT: Louisa Johnson will be joining Olly Murs concert tour

9 February 2017

XFactor winner Louisa Johnson will be joining Olly Murs this summer

2015 X-Factor winner Louisa Johnson will be joining Olly Murs this summer on his UK tour, including a concert at the Brunton Park on Saturday 3 June.

The 19-year old singing sensation has just been announced as Olly’s support act, and her emotive voice, distinctive style and infectious spontaneity are certain to prove a hit with fans at each show.

Louisa has been a familiar face since her spectacular win on the X Factor in 2015 as the youngest ever winner – followed by an impressive debut album and a hit collaboration with Clean Bandit – laying the foundations for what looks set to be an incredible 2017.

Louisa always knew she wanted to be on the big stage, jumping at the chance of talent shows from the tender age of eight, whenever she was on holiday with her family, and frequently taking solo spots at school concerts.

Although born in Kent, Louisa moved to Essex at the age of four, and as her passion for music grew with her year on year, Louisa took the decision purposely to move into a secondary school, renowned for its ability to nurture musical talent. Whether it was breakfast, lunch breaks or after school, Louisa was singing at every chance!

At just 13 she auditioned for Britain’s Got Talent, achieving first round success, and in 2014 was approached by X Factor scouts, but decided to wait a year until she had developed the style with which she has certainly marked her place on the music scene.

With the 2015 X Factor win under her belt, Louisa turned her attention to a debut album, spurred on by a collaboration with Clean Bandit on the hugely successful ‘Tears’; a project that came about after Grace from the band saw her on the show and approached her with the track demo.

The success of ‘Tears’ in May followed by her debut single ‘So Good’ in October certainly laid the foundation for Louisa’s new album; fizzing with talent, ambition and massive tunes. Louisa spent 2016 working with a dream cast of writers and producers on songs that capture her bubbly personality while also doing justice to a decade’s worth of work and determination.

Coming along for the ride are artists like Clean Bandit and other special guests, as well as tunesmiths like Ali Tamposi (Justin Bieber, Beyoncé), Chelcee Grimes (Olly Murs), Burns (Britney, Calvin Harris), Ed Drewett (One Direction, Little Mix), J Kash (Maroon 5, Meghan Trainor) and Steve Mac (Jess Glynne, Charli XCX, Selena Gomez).

The results are as varied as Louisa’s own musical tastes, with each track on the album showing off her impressive vocal range and an exciting mix of styles and sounds.

Louisa Johnson said: “I am so excited to be supporting Olly on his summer tour. He is an incredible artist; an absolute inspiration, and we both cannot wait to see all the fans in Carlisle. It’s going to be a brilliant night!”

Olly Murs said: “Louisa’s voice makes you sit up and listen; she has a great stage presence, which is amazing at such a young age, and so many fans. I know she’ll prove a great hit on the tour.”
