Columbia Records' Presents Olly Murs At Private Hollywood Showcase
June 21, 2012 at 3:48 AM (PT)
UK Pop sensation OLLY MURS, currently opening for ONE DIRECTION on their US tour, took a break between shows to perform in a private showcase at the exclusive SAYERS CLUB last night (6/19) in HOLLYWOOD.
MURS, a multi-platinum selling artist with two smash albums under his belt back home, recently wrapped up his sold-out arena tour across the UK and has turned his attention to the US market. His current CD, "In Case You Didn't Know," will be released in the US SEPTEMBER 25.
The energetic singer-songwriter performed songs from each album, opening with one of his four #1 singles, "Dance With Me Tonight." He entertained the audience with clever anecdotes between the other songs in the set which included "Please Don't Let Me Go" (another UK #1), "I Need You Now" and "Oh My Goodness." He closed the show with "Heart Skips A Beat" (the former UK #1 smash which officially launches at US Pop radio JULY 9.)
ALL ACCESS' JOEL DENVER and ED BROWN were in the house, along with KBIG/LA APD/MD BRANDON BELL, JEFF AXELROD (formerly with FOX ALL ACCESS), and other industry folk. Our thanks to MURS' management team and the COLUMBIA RECORDS crew including West Coast VP/Pop AIMIE VAUGHAN and Executive Assistant DONNA HAYNES for giving us the chance to experience, up close and personal, this exciting new talent.
