Biography

Thomas Michael “Tom” Fletcher (born 17 July 1985) is an English musician. He is best known as one of the lead vocalists, guitarists and songwriters of pop rock/pop punk band McFly, along with fellow band members Danny Jones, Dougie Poynter and Harry Judd. McFly rose to fame after they were invited to tour with fellow teen-pop band Busted in March 2004. Fletcher was born in Harrow, London. When he was 10, Fletcher starred as the main role in Oliver! at the London Palladium alongside Jim Dale as Fagin. He then went on to do a documentary about HIV for schools. He is currently living in his hometown. He is the founding member, joint lead singer, guitarist (and sometimes pianist) of pop band McFly, naming the band after the main character in his favourite film Back To The Future, Marty McFly. McFly’s formation came about when he auditioned for Busted but lost out on the place to Charlie Simpson (who later went on to co-found post-hardcore band Fightstar), after the record label decided to have the band as a three-some rather than four-some, Fletcher states that he was in the band “for approximately 24-hours.” Though the record label (Island) decided against offering Fletcher a place in Busted, they were intrigued by his song-writings talents, and later offered him a place on the Busted song-writing “team,” alongside bandmember (and already accomplished song-writer) James Bourne; Fletcher has since stated that it was Bourne who taught him how to “properly” structure songs, and how to “come up with good, poppy melodies.
