Former Level 3 Music Performance student Elliot Horne is currently starring in the latest X-Factor TV series with boy band United Vibe.
Elliot, now 18 years old, dreamt of a singing career from a very early age and nurtured his craft by working in West End Theatre, Pantomimes, Musicals and writing songs.
Elliot accepted a place at Buckinghamshire College Group on the Music Performance course after leaving school and completed his studies this year having achieved the results he had aimed for. During his time at college, Elliot had the opportunity to hone his on stage skills with live performances at a local bar and learnt valuable skills from the technology used in the Music industry such as ‘Logic’ and ‘Pro-Tools’ software. These skills enabled Elliot to complete his debut single ‘Skin to Skin’ which he released in February 2018 after fine tuning it at Sticky Studios in Surrey.
Early in 2018, Elliot applied as a soloist on the X Factor UK where his application was successful. Elliot performed for the Judges Simon Cowell, Louis Tomlinson, Robbie Williams and Ayda Williams and received a unanimous YES from all four judges. Elliot then formed a boy band called Vibe 5 later renamed United Vibe and after being successful at the Six Chair Challenge, flew to Robbie Williams' home in Los Angeles for the Judges House performance. Once again they were successful and the band’s following on social media started to soar. They were in the Live shows last weekend and have made it through to the next round this weekend.
"Elliot was always a focused and ambitious individual who made it clear from day one that he took his performance and composition seriously," said his college tutor Nick Lindsay. "Throughout the two years of the music performance course, Elliot honed skills which will be vital to his career and will lead him to success, whether it’s on X Factor or in any other part of the music industry. I’m really proud of the progress Elliot has made and hope he’ll take it all the way to the final."
