About Only Men Aloud
Only Men Aloud is a male voice choir from Wales. The choir came to national prominence in the UK when they won the Last Choir Standing competition run by BBC television during 2008. The choir was formed by Tim Rhys-Evans, a classically trained singer and former musical director of Welsh National Youth Opera. It has 15 members and is based in Cardiff.
After the appearance on Last Choir Standing, the choir signed a five-record deal with Universal Music and released their first album. They performed with Josh Groban at The Royal Variety Performance in 2008. The choir embarked on their first UK tour and at the Cardiff International Arena featured a one-off performance with Bonnie Tyler.
In October 2009, the choir’s second album, Band of Brothers, went straight to number one in the UK Classical Charts, where it remained for three weeks. The album went on to win the NS&I Album of the Year 2010 at the Classical Brit awards. The choir embarked on their second UK tour in December 2009, and in 2010, the choir was given its own Welsh-language television series, Only Men Aloud, on S4C.
In 2011, Only Men Aloud released their third album called In Festive Mood, made a 15-date UK Christmas Tour and released Only Men Aloud – The Book. In Festive Mood entered the UK Classical Charts at Number 8.
On the 27th July 2012, Only Men Aloud were invited to perform at the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympic Games. They performed in Caliban’s Dream, as the Olympic Cauldron was lit.
In March 2013, Only Men Aloud announced they will be performing at the Voice Now Festival in June, and will also be making a special appearance at this year’s Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod in July.
