Tom Bleasby

Tom Bleasby - X Factor 2015 Contestant

Tom Bleasby, was born and raised in the city of Leeds, England. The son of Zoe and Adam Bleasby, he comes from humble beginnings.

Tom had his first experience of singing in the school choir at the tender age of six, from then on his voice grew into one of the most instantly recognisable ones in the world.

On the 24th May 2015, Tom joined British singer Jessie J on the Smule! Sing Karaoke App, singing the song from Pitch Perfect 2 'Flashlight'. The video went viral across the world amassing a collective audience view of over 60 million. The vocal battle was picked up by most of the world’s media outlets including some famous names, Perez Hilton, Lil Wayne and Ashton Kutcher.

Thus Tom rose to unprecedented levels of internet stardom. In June of 2015, the producers of the X Factor UK for its 12th series approached Bleasby. Tom auditioned with the classic ‘Make You Feel My Love’ to a standing ovation from the crowd and Rita Ora. Exceptional praise from the judges followed. Tom made it as far as Judges Houses in the competition, but for personal reasons, chose to withdraw from the competition; despite being a fan favourite.

Despite this, Tom’s musical career was by no means over. On the 23rd September 2015, Tom was nominated for a Los Angeles Music Award, which was celebrating its 25th anniversary. Tom attended the ceremony in L.A and won the award for 'Best Vocal Duet'. Tom’s biggest achievement was still yet to come. Tom appeared on the biggest daytime US talk show, 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show'. He did an interview with the American Icon, then proceeded to perform ‘Flashlight’. To Tom’s sheer delight (and surprise) Jessie J herself walked out from behind the scenes to perform the song with him.

Tom has recalled countless times that this was the greatest moment in his musical journey thus far.

Since his appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, Tom’s level of fame sky rocketed to unprecedented levels.  He's performed all over the UK and Europe in the lead up to Christmas 2015 for tens of thousands of fans.

In January 2016 he met his ultimate idol Celine Dion in Las Vegas, this was a personal dream come true from him. Tom is released debut single, 'Half of Me', in 2016.

Tom’s vocal stylings have drawn him considerable attention. Dubbed by the press as the next ‘Adele’ or ‘Sam Smith’, the world can expect nothing but greatness from the unique Tom Bleasby.
