Hoping for chart success
A new boy band is getting ready to take the charts by storm – after signing a £1million contract with a Kent record label.
South 4 are the latest Brit School students to try and make it big and hope to recreate the success of former pupils Adele, Leona Lewis and Jessie J.
The boys, Joel Baylis, Henry Tredinnick, Luke Newton, all 18, and Oli Evans, 19, were signed by Eagle Records, in Bromley.
Jason Nolan runs the label and has been based in the town for four years.
Lead singer Joel said South 4’s first single, Cougar Town, is about “the fantasy every 18-year-old lad has about good looking older women.”
He added: “Jessie J came back to Brit School to visit last summer, she heard us practising harmonies in the corridor, hi-fived Henry and told him we were going be the next big thing to come out of Brit!”
Producer Paul Moessl said: “Having worked on projects as diverse as Nicole Scherzinger and The Pussycat Dolls through to Sting, I truly believe these four lads will storm the charts this summer as well as capture girls hearts’ across the country.”
Their single is due to be released on July 2.
