Essex Born Talent

Essex Born Talent

Essex is one of the hotspots for new musical talent and there have been some fantastic artists and bands to have come out of Essex and we will be looking at some of the best and their backgrounds:

Olly Murs

Everyone knows who Olly Murs is, he is a singer from Witham who came as a runner up on the Xfactor and he is now one of the most famous artists in the whole of the UK. Olly Murs was part of a duo called The Small Town Blaggers , with guitarist Jon Goodey, the duo were reasonably successful performing at parties and pubs but they wanted to be more successful, leading to Olly going onto the Xfactor, and we all know how that turned out.

Depeche Mode

Depeche Mode are a 1980s Electronic band from Basildon. They started as a band at the James Hornsby School in Basildon after going through many iterations of the band they finally settled on Depeche Mode and they performed their debut gig at their school in May 1980. They then shortly produced a demo tape and personally handed it out to major record companies and demanded that they played it then and there and if they asked to keep it they said ‘it’s our only one’. They then received many offers from major record companies.
