’80s boybander Matt Goss (of UK sensation Bros) reinvents himself as a silky-smooth Vegas lounge singer and OH you’re just going to melt.
Remember Bros? “WHEN… WILL I… WILL I BE FAMOUS?” My theme song for much of the ’80s. Twins Matt and Luke Goss were IT. Such dreamboats. Pretty and blond, you know how I like ‘em. Bros charted 13 times in the UK before breaking up in the early ’90s. Luke went on to have a semi-successful acting career, starring in Hellboy II, Blade II, and an American TV show last year called Red Widow, that I was its only viewer.
Now Matt’s gone and reinvented himself as a suave-as-fuck Las Vegas crooner and WOW. He’s lost none of his charm, none of his talent, and none of those achingly good looks. In fact, he might even be more handsome now than he was 25 years ago, how many people can claim THAT?
Says the PR release for this song:
Luke Goss is a man’s man, a lady killer, and a consummate entertainer. He became a household name in the UK as a performer in his teens and has since matured into a headliner with his own residency at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. The debonair Brit is now on the verge of making his name known stateside with the 2014 release of Life You Imagine on Virgin Records. The album was produced by Ron Fair over a meticulous recording process of two years with a degree of musicianship rarely seen these days. In fact, Billboard Magazine describes the project as “a mix of big band swing and contemporary-sounding soul that pays respectful homage to the Rat Pack era.”
“I want my music to sound big. I’m inspired by Queen and Sinatra, Elvis and Bowie because there was never anything understated about their music,” says Matt. “I want to create as much energy, glamour, and drama as I can.”
Swoon. That VOICE.
Watch “I do,” then stroll down memory lane and watch “When Will I be Famous” just for old time sake.
