This post is much delayed, but it is timely with the release of Olly Murs’ music video for Dear Darlin!
On May 1, 2013, my sister and I went to the Olly Murs concert at the Phoenix Concert Theatre in Toronto. It was a great show, but not the last time we’d be seeing Olly during his visit to Canada!
On May 2 the British singer spent the morning after his sold-out and wild (picture bras being thrown and “take it off” being chanted over and over again by the audience) concert in Toronto, at a Faze Magazine cover shoot! That’s right, Faze’s next cover boy is Olly Murs! I was fortunate to be on set to capture the behind-the-scenes photography, so here are my shots from the shoot:
Olly looked great! It was so funny, he loved all the clothes the stylist bought, but being the fashionisto he is, when looking through the wardrobe he’s like, “I actually have some pants that would go great with this top! I’ll be right back” and with that he ran back to his room (the cover shoot was held in his hotel) and came back with a handful of his own clothes. We’ve certainly never had a cover star do that before :p It was quite hilarious.
Another hilarious and unique Olly move? He made the shoot a sing-along! Faze Cover Shoot Musical: The Olly Murs Edition. His album “Right Place Right Time” was the soundtrack playing throughout the entire day, so of course Olly knew all the words. And so of course he sang along! Whether it was while he was getting ready, getting wardrobe touches or even while posing for the camera; nothing stopped Olly from breaking out his dance moves either. Hey, none of us minded at all. His voice is heavenly. I figured that as an artist, you’d be sick of hearing your own songs, but for Olly that is definitely not the case.
