PRESENTED BY KEVIN
Meet Dave May (20), Jack Guppy (19), Robbie McDade and David Gibbs (20). Four hot faces, four very talented boys. They are The Kixx. They've already performed in front of 40,000 people, been offered industry advice by Robbie Williams himself, played the 02 Arena - and supported both Olly Murs and JLS on their HUGE tours this Spring/Summer!!
So why should you take notice of The Kixx? Well for a start, they're not 'just another boy-band'. They don't mime on stage, dance to cheesy routines or spend their entire set sitting on stools -- instead, they write their own lyrics, create their own music and play their own instruments. They even taught themselves how to sing!
"We're a real band," comments Jack. "Not manufactured. It's always just been us. We've worked hard for this".
"We've learned how to write a song the hard way," chips in Dave. "Not just any song -- a good song, one fit for an album or fit for radio." See, that is why this band are at the brink of becoming huge -- and their talent and determination are about to tip them over the edge.
The Kixx signed to Entertainment Company BPM, run by Record Producer Mike Peden (David Bowie, Will Young, Shakira) and Tim Bowen (the former the COO of Sony BMG Worldwide), last year. BPM snapped the band up as soon as Peden saw their live performance at The Big Sing (a charity gig at the 02 in London) -- and it's a move that has completely rewritten the band's future and given them the chance to show the entire nation what they can do.
"Supporting Olly Murs on tour is a massive thing for us," notes Jack (the self-proclaimed dreamer of the band, he seems pretty happy with this particular dream). "And we know we're lucky to have done great things already -- we've performed with Robbie Williams, McFly, The Saturdays, Gabriella Cilmi and Eliza Doolittle."
