Notching up over 80 million hits on youtube for their ‘golden buzzer’ hit from Simon Cowell on Britain’s Got Talent last year, the UK pop duo, Bars & Melody announce the release of their debut album, ‘143’ on 21 August, preceded by the new single ‘Beautiful’ and a string of tour dates across the UK. Check out the spoof BGT video for ‘Beautiful’, a tongue-in-cheek tip of the hat to that famous ‘golden buzzer’ moment from Mr Cowell!
Bars & Melody (aka BAM) are Leondre Devries (14) and Charlie Lenehan (16), the two Brit musicians who wowed UK TV audiences in 2014 when Simon Cowell pressed his golden buzzer for them. The video of that moment scooped over 80 million hits, BAM were signed to Cowell’s SYCO deal for a x1 release single deal for ‘Hopeful’ which shot to No5 in the UK charts. Since then the boys have played numerous sell-out gigs in the UK, flown to America to appear on the ‘Ellen’ show and even spent two weeks in Australia as ambassadors for the Princess Diana Anti Bullying trust.
Throughout 2015 BAM have been busy putting the finishing touches to their debut album, ‘143’ which is set for release this summer. March and April saw the band perform on a SOLD OUT headline tour in the UK. They also played at the We Day events at Wembley and Seattle in the US.
With an almighty fan following, named fondly by the boys as their ‘BAMbinos’, Bars & Melody are rapidly snowballing envious support on social media.
This band is raising the bar and pumping up the melody – the Bars & Melody phenomenon has only just begun. Are you Ready?
