Aston Merrygold shot to fame in 2008 as part of the four-piece boyband JLS who finished second place on the fifth series of The X Factor. The group signed a record deal off the back of their successful run on the show and went on to release four studio albums, release their own film JLS: Eyes Wide Open, and win BRIT and multiple MOBO Awards.
In 2014, Merrygold announced he would also be pursuing a solo music career and released his debut solo EP Precious in 2017. This year, the singer released his single 'How Many Times' all the while starring as a special guest judge during The Masked Singer Live tour, launching his own 'Pizza & Tequila' podcast, and featuring in a musical adaption of Footloose.
Merrygold announced in 2022 that he would be heading out on a UK headline tour, performing at club venues around the UK mixing work from his solo career and throwback JLS tracks.
