From Ashley John-Baptiste
Having auditioned as a solo artist for 2011’s The X Factor, Ashley John-Baptiste was placed in a boy band called The Risk. Going through to the live finals with The Risk, Ashley soon decided to leave the group with the aim of gaining clarity on his future. Although a lot of people have learned of Ashley’s un-doubtable talent through The X Factor; his musical background is much more far-reaching. Not just a singer; Ashley is a credible producer, songwriter and pianist who engages audiences with his raw musical talent. Prior to The X Factor, Ashley released a song on the 2010 ‘Hed Kandi’ (Ministry of Sound) autumn album.
