Brit Invasion: From The Beatles to One Direction
40 years on from the original British pop invasion in the 1960’s led by The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and The Kinks, a new generation, likes of One Direction, Marina and The Diamonds and Olly Murs has broken into the hearts of American pop fans. OneDirection tickets and Olly Murs new album are much in demand and Primadonnastar, Marina and The Diamonds current US tour with up-and-coming Charlie XCX support is playing her biggest US tour to date at sold-out venue across North America.
Olly Murs Owes US Success To One Direction
Olly Murs, whose last album Right Place Right Time crashed into the Top-5 of the US iTunes charts, has been quoted he owes his stateside chart success in largechunks to good timing and being chosen as tour support on a previous tour for fellow talent show contestants One Direction.
The Essex-born singer believes that timing and in particular the changed technological landscape since the arrival of Social Media has helped push him to the US audience.
“Technology has changed with social media, Twitter and YouTube,” says Olly Murs ”Without that I don’t think I’d ever be able to have impact.”
But the Heart Skips A Beat star also feels his music being judged for what it is rather than being judged as an X Factor celebrity.
“Over in the States, they’re listening to my music instead of saying ‘Oh, he’s from the X Factor... whatever.’ I don’t get the credit I deserve.” Olly Murs continues, “So, it’s a really good thing for me. I’m able to come over (to the US) and be an artist – people are judging me on my abilities and my talent for my music.”
Olly Murs made his stateside live debut as opening act for One Direction. The five fellow X Factor contestants have since not just taken the US but equally the entire world by storm. Although those opposing the idea of a boyband and clean-cut pop actswouldn’t want to admit it but One Direction have since become the biggest band on the planet.
Looking at One Direction’s success, Olly Murs is under no illusions. He wants to build on his US success but doesn’t believe he can match One Direction.
“I don’t ever expect to reach the heights of One Direction,” he admits, “over here, but I believe I can be a success. And so far it’s going well. It’s been brilliant.”
