Olly Murs is living the dream – not just his own, but that of anyone who longs to realize their true inner talents, of music fans who search for entertainers of real substance in a time when pop is more cynically packaged and depersonalized than ever.
After tremendous success in the U.K., Murs comes to the United States to tell his story on In Case You Didn’t Know, the title of which is a typically self-deprecating acknowledgement of Murs’ duality – the quirky boy who became a television sensation on The X Factor but still calls tiny Withan, Essex home, the superstar in Britain that’s looking to make his name overseas with the eagerness of the new kid in school. With a sound and style that firmly places him within the “modern classic” pop star galaxy of Bruno Mars, Justin Timberlake and Cee-Lo Green, there’s little reason to believe he won’t make good on that ambition.
