Star of the mega boyband, JLS, Aston Merrygold has maintained his position as one of the hottest names in music, and pop culture, throughout much of the past decade. Since rising to international acclaim with his quartet, Aston has carved an impressive solo career, spanning music, socials and television. A well-loved media personality, Aston is never far from our screens, which has ensured he is highly sought after by event organisers as a host, thanks to his demonstrated abilities as a featured star. Similarly, his status within the industry perfectly places him as a celebrity guest, famous entertainer, or even an after-dinner speaker, sharing insight into his high-flying career, a truly versatile addition to your occasion.
6 million records sold, 15 music awards won, and millions of fans worldwide, it’s fair to say JLS are one of the biggest boybands the UK has ever produced. Establishing themselves on the music scene in 2008, during the fifth series of The X Factor, Aston and his fellow members came second in the talent show, but first in the eyes of the nation. Distinguishable as their own talented artists within the group, Aston sported the signature colour blue, and was often known for his merchandise selling out the fastest. Off the back of the success of their first two number 1 UK hits, Beat Again and Everybody in Love, the boys went on to perform four headline tours before disbanding in 2013.
Having gained global recognition for his work, it wasn’t long before Aston’s cheeky, yet charming personality saw him snapped up for a number of media engagements. From children’s television as a part of the Fun Song Factory, to expertly judging the Got to Dance televised competition, Aston’s versatility and aptitude lends itself to featured roles. In 2017, Aston joined the prestigious Strictly Come Dancing line up, where he honed his dancing capabilities, learning to waltz, foxtrot and even won a later TV special with his jive.
Backed by his reputation as not only a talented vocalist, but an equally talented dancer, Aston utilised his platform to embark on a hugely successful solo career. Completing two sell out tours in 2017 and 2018, Aston’s debut single ‘Get Stupid’ went platinum, with his EP ‘Precious’ proving equally popular. In 2020, he took to his nearly 600,000 combined social followers to announce the highly anticipate reunion with JLS. Set for a 2021 return tour titled ‘Beat Again’, fans have gone wild, selling out dates instantly.
