Blue - Biography

Blue have proven to be the success story of 2001.

Their debut single "All Rise" entered the UK chart at No.
4, becoming a major radio hit and staying in the top ten for five
weeks. Their second single "Too Close" went on to be an
even bigger hit, crashing into the chart at No. 1 at the beginning
of September. Both singles have gone silver, selling in excess of
200,000 copies. This November they release a third single, a
beautiful pop/r'n'b classic entitled "If You Come Back",
followed by their long awaited debut album "All Rise".

Blue comprises of London based lads Duncan James (22), Antony Costa
(20), Lee Ryan (18) and Simon Webbe (22). The boys got together
early last year when Duncan and Antony decided to form a vocal
group, enlisting Lee (whom they had seen on the audition circuit and
regarded as the best singer around) and his flatmate Simon to make
up the numbers. Vocally, the four soon realised they had something
special going on, and both management and a deal with Virgin's
Innocent Records quickly followed.

Their debut album "All Rise" is a confident collection of
classic r'n'b tunes that is sure to cement their position as the
hottest new act to emerge from the UK in 2001.

The album was recorded in the UK and Norway with a variety of top
producers including the inimitable Stargate and Ray Ruffin (son of
Motown legend Jimmy Ruffin). The album showcases the boy's amazingly
mature vocal delivery. Tracks range from the infectious and hook
laden swing of "All Rise", "Fly By" and
"This Temptation", to the heartfelt smooth grooves of
"Long Time" and "Best In Me".

Duncan says: "This has been a crazy and exciting year for Blue
and we're totally blown away by the success we've had so far. We've
worked really hard to produce an album that we are all proud of. All
we want to do is perform decent songs with tough grooves and soulful
vocals."

Individual Biographies
Duncan 'Dunk' James
Duncan was born on 7th April 1979 and lived in Dorset with his
mother until he was thirteen, when they relocated to Sidmouth in
South Devon. After studying drama for 'A' Level, Duncan realised he
'had a voice' and took his newly discovered singing talents to
holiday resorts where he performed with a spate of embryonic bands,
which he says were 'perfect for cutting your teeth on but no more
than that!' Thankfully, Duncan left the world of 'average' bands
when he met fellow Blue member Antony.

Antony Costa
Born on 23rd June 1981 and brought up in Middlesex and North London
respectively, Antony had a very impressive CV (for a nineteen year
old) before he joined Blue. He previously had roles in Grange Hill
and The Bill ('for some reason I always seem to play the parts of
cheeky little thugs!') and played the lead in the hit BBC sitcom
Chalk. Although Antony had a natural singing voice, he had never
deemed it a serious career option until he met Duncan.

Lee Ryan
Lee, the youngster of the band was born on 17th June 1983 and is a
South East London boy. Brought up in Blackheath, he studied at drama
school, but hated his teachers, 'They're always trying to steer you
towards West End musicals - and the last thing I wanna do is some
cheesy big band number!' Having decided this, Lee began to attend
auditions and after bit parts in Holby City, met Duncan and the
others.

Simon Solo Webbe
Simon, the oldest of the band, was born on 30th March 1979 in
Manchester. For years, Simon had his heart set on being a
professional footballer and was signed to Port Vale, before being
poached by Stoke City. This was after he'd been approached by Derby
County, Birmingham City, Liverpool and Shrewsbury Town. Musically,
Simon had occasionally rapped with Birmingham-based hip hop group
'Criminal Damage', before he eventually decided to quit the football
industry and move down to London to join Blue.
