NAME: MARVIN HUMES, 23
OCCUPATION: PROPERTY SALES
LOCATION: SOUTH-EAST LONDON
Marvin was born in South-East London and started singing at the age of five. He attended a professional performance school 3 times a week as well as attending a regular school for his education.
After finishing school, a chance meeting with Simon Webbe gave Marvin the opportunity to hand over one of his demo tapes. Weeks later Marvin auditioned for Simon and was asked if he wanted to join VS (a group Simon Webbe was putting together).
After six months of rehearsing and recording, VS were signed to Innocent Records and they went on to support Blue on two national tours. Their first release went to number 7, the second went to number 11 and their third release went to 23.
Unfortunately VS lost their deal and Marvin contemplated leaving the music industry and started selling property and land abroad. Marvin looks back on this time as a massive reality check and something that has made him stronger. He’s always looking to move forward and was ecstatic to receive a call from Oritsé inviting him to become involved with JLS.
NAME: JONATHAN GILL (JB), 21
JB grew up in Croydon and fell in love with music at the age of seven when he played the recorder, piano, flute and guitar.
At the age of nine, he joined the choir and went onto perform at the local church. JB concentrated on his music and began studying at The Centre for Young Musicians (CYM).
After leaving the CYM, JB stayed involved with the school music scene. He played Mercado in the play Mercado and was involved with the choir at school. He continued this until he was 15 but had to give it up due to the pressures from the school to concentrate on his promising Rugby career.
JB eventually decided that he wanted to sing more and took up vocal coaching during a year out before attending university. During this period, JB was contacted by Oritsé to try out for the band.
NAME: ORTISE WILLIAMS, 21
OCCUPATION: WORKS WITH DISABLED CHILDREN
Oritsé has been singing since he was at school and at 15 yrs old, he would even perform on his school bus!
Oritsé studied for his A’ Levels in Nigeria and would also spend time teaching the children in the villages to sing. It was here that Oritsé first sang in a recording studio when he was asked to lay some vocals down for a track he had written called Soul Woman.
However, due to competition from another male solo artist, Oritsé’s track was pulled from the station's playlist and his dream came to a standstill. Oritsé was the school’s head-boy and was also involved in local charity group, Motherless Baby Home.
Oritsé loved being involved with his community and most of all singing with the villagers. After two years he moved back to the UK to live back with his mother in London. Oritsé worked at a record company for free in order to gain music industry experience. He was introduced to a variety of different mentors when he joined a vocal academy whilst he was studying at university, and Malcolm Connell trained him vocally and was the person who encouraged him to form JLS.
He managed to blag his way onto MTV Base and got a feature on Trevor Nelson, The Lick show. Trevor said that Oritsé was just what the UK needed.
