Thame’s got the X Factor

Did you know that Thame currently has one of it’s own competing in the X Factor?

Elliot Horne, 18  is one 5th of the boy band United Vibe. After the previous success stories of global groups Little Mix and One Direction, The X Factor is always looking to put promising  solo artists together to create a new group. And this year, United Vibe are one such experiment.

Elliot who lives in Towersey, Thame attended Lord Williams’s School before moving on to Amersham College to study music performance for 2 years. From a young age Elliot always took a keen interest in singing and writing music, regularly putting on singing and dancing shows for his family. As a child he attended dance classes then moved on to Jackie Palmer Stage School where he honed his skills in singing, dancing and acting. During his time at Jackie Palmer Stage School, Elliot had various roles in West End Theatre, which included roles in productions such as The Family Reunion at The Donmar Warehouse, The Railway Children at Waterloo Station and Phedre at The National Theatre. Elliot also worked in Pantomime and later worked on voice overs and starred in Educational Videos.

When Elliot left Jackie Palmer Stage School he carried on his singing and self-taught himself Piano, learning by ‘ear’. Elliot wrote many songs and even took part in Thame’s Got Talent when he was 9 years old. As Elliot got older his quest to forge a music career started to accelerate. He was asked to take part in a singing show in Italy. After auditioning in London and Rome, he was chosen as the only International singer to be on the show and spent a month in Rome performing live to 3 million viewers. Elliot gained a wonderful following when in Italy and when he returned to the UK in late 2017, his followers encouraged him to release his original song ‘Skin to Skin’. In February 2018 the song was self-released on Spotify and other music streaming platforms, with the help of Sticky Studios in Surrey.

After deciding to audition for the X Factor this year, Elliot was well-received by the crowd before he even started singing. After performing Lost in Japan by Shawn Mendez he received four yeses from the X Factor judges.
Elliot and the other contestants are currently living in a lavish residential property in Ealing, so that they can manage their busy schedules at short notice. But with contestants getting one day off a week he tries to get back to his family home as much as possible.
