The lead singer and bassist for the family group that was renowned for being the most popular boy bands of the 1970’s is Merrill Osmond. Albeit he and his brothers had hit the big time in America during the Mid 60’s, it was the 70’s that saw them at their most successful, across the world.
Merrill is currently touring the UK and as part of that small but very select tour he will be performing all the big hits with his band from The Osmond’s at the Babbacombe Theatre in Torquay on Friday 10th September at 7.30pm.
As part of his show, Merrill will also be reminiscing about his experiences of growing up within one of the world’s biggest bands, the famous people he has met and how he wrote so many of the world-famous hits.
Now established as a solo artist, he continues to tour extensively worldwide, performing in many major venues, but nevertheless he also enjoys playing in smaller venues where he can get up close to his audiences and actually see their faces.
Merrill sang lead on 27 gold records, produced, and wrote the music and lyrics for 5 number one hits – quite an achievement! Collectively, the Osmond’s produced 47 platinum and gold records and there is still no other recording artists that has earned as many gold records in one year as the Osmond family did.
It’s Merrill’s incredible voice you can hear on such hits as One Bad Apple, Let Me In, Love Me for A Reason, Goin’ Home, The Proud One, I Can’t Stop, Having A Party and Crazy Horses and
undoubtedly audiences who remembers the 1970’s or just love the music of that era, will pick up
on the fact that 5 decades later he still has that instantly recognisable voice.
