Biography

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 18 members and is based in Cardiff.

Following the Last Choir Standing competition, 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 in April/May 2009 with singer and soap star Amy Nuttall joining them as a special guest. The performance 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. [1]

Earlier that month the choir held auditions at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff to find a new member to join them.[4]
