James Arthur - Safe Inside
28 year-old James is from Saltburn near Middlesbrough and when he entered the X Factor he was living in a tiny bed sit. Having been suspended from school he later slept rough before volunteering to go into foster care. James went through bootcamp before being accepted as one of Nicole Scherzinger’s final 3. James beat Jahmene Douglas in the final and scored a Number 1 with his debut single ‘Impossible’, selling over 1 million copies in the UK. Despite 3 Top 20 singles and an album that peaked at No2 he was dropped from Simon Cowell’s record label in 2014 only to be re-signed last year before releasing the Number 1 ‘Say You Won’t Let Go’. ‘Safe Inside’ is the second single from the album ‘Back From The Edge’. His UK tour begins on 6th March. James is nominated for Best British Single and Video at the Brit Awards.
