Charlie Healy, most known for being a finalist and part of boyband The Risk in the 2011 series of ITV‘s smash hit show The X Factor has announced the release of his debut solo, self penned record ‘Playground‘.
Back in 2011 with The Risk, following their departure from The X Factor, the band took to the road as one of the chosen acts to perform on The X Factor 2012 arena tour which travelled the whole of the UK.
The Risk quickly clenched the title of becoming the most toured act within a 12 month period following the series final. Not content with 1 tour under their belt, the foursome joined forces with Peter Andre and once again toured the UK. During the tour, the band continuously promoted their debut single titled ‘Missiles’. The single was extremely well received and secured a Top 40 position in the iTunes charts immediately. Since his departure from the band, Charlie has made a strong name for himself around Europe.
Following much anticipation, Charlie released ‘Renditions: Volume 1’ which was made up of various well known covers including Ed Sheeran’s ‘Thinking Out Loud’ and an acoustic version of the 2016 smash hit ‘Can’t Stop The Feeling’ by Justin Timberlake. Charlie’s unique vocal performance on all tracks led to the release becoming a firm fan favourite.
Charlie‘s debut single ‘Playground‘ is due for release on 24th February and will be available to purchase via iTunes. Check out the track below and let us know what you think….
