Singer-songwriter, actor and media personality Simon Webbe is best-known as a member of one of Britain’s most successful boy bands of all-time, Blue. Alongside his friends Lee Ryan, Duncan James and Anthony Costa, the group shot to fame in 2001 with their hit single ‘All Rise’. During the pinnacle of their success, they recorded nine Top 5 singles and three No.1 albums. They even collaborated with musical icons Elton John and Stevie Wonder!
After the group split-up, Simon released his debut solo album Sanctuary which went double platinum and featured two Top 5 singles, ‘Lay Your Hands’ and ‘No Worries’. He followed this up with a second solo album, Grace, which was also a success and he toured extensively as a solo artist.
Though his solo career was a success, the public were desperate for a Blue reunion and they got their wish in 2009, and group represented the UK in 2011 at the Eurovision Song Contest. The extent of their success was shown in 2013 alone when Blue played over 170 shows and events, in more than 21 countries. Blue’s recent album, Roulette, saw them collaborate with Grammy-winning producer RedOne, who has crafted global hits for Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj. 2015 saw Blue hitting the screens as they launched their new ITV show, “Blue Go Mad In Ibiza”.
