Two years ago, Hobbie Stuart was virtually unknown but had hopes of being the next big thing in music. Now for the 20 year old Brighton boy-turned-YouTube-sensation it’s all becoming a reality, having successfully covered the likes of Katy Perry, Jessie J and Justin Timberlake. He started off uploading live covers, just him and his guitar, with the first one being Rihanna’s Only Girl in the World. He then went on to cover big hits such as Ellie Goulding’s Your Song and Adele classics Someone Like You (which is to date his most popular, receiving over 700,000 views!!) and Rolling in the Deep.

With almost 30,000 subscribers and well over 3 and a half million views under his belt in just a year, this boy is really going places! He’s also kept very busy as he’s been doing headline shows in his hometown of Brighton, London (The Garage and Bush Hall) and Manchester since August, with even more coming up at the end of November!

After signing with Sony, he’s already been to LA to start recording for his debut album and came back tweeting “I’m happy to tell you the trip was a success we got 6 new songs written for the album. 2 of them are absolute smashes swear down!!” In addition to that he’s already been out to dinner with Natasha Bedingfield, met the man who wrote Cheryl Cole’s smash hit Fight For This Love and has managed to bag free tickets to a Noel Gallagher gig, with a signed album! Not bad for a day’s work!

But what makes him different from other up and coming singers? His looks, the song choices, the fact that he plays acoustic songs beautifully? Or is it his fantastic voice?! As soon as he starts you can get a sense of how distinct his voice is (with an underlying British accent!) and it’s so easy to recognise how different it is to many mainstream voices. Having already uploaded two original songs to his YouTube channel called Flying by the Sun and more recently How We Lived, he’s definitely bringing something new to the music scene and has received a mass of support and good response from his 7 thousand Twitter followers and 20,000 Facebook fans. Supporters are all eager to hear new material and hopefully sometime next year, his very own album!
