Scott Bruton

AGE: 19
LOCATION: MANCHESTER
JOB: BLUECOAT, PONTINS (UNTIL X FACTOR)

Scott was born in Manchester and lives with his parents, two brothers and one sister. Scott used to want to be an actor but music soon became his passion when he got on stage at 11 yrs old and sang karaoke for the first time. Karaoke soon became an obsession and Scott entered numerous talent shows and singing competitions at school – winning them all. Scott started performing on the pubs and clubs circuit from the age 14 yrs old but after dropping out of drama college due to lack of funds, Scott started a job at Pontins.

Scott had been working as a Bluecoat since January this year but even though he enjoyed it, when Scott got to the Bootcamp stage of The X Factor, Scott packed it in to pursue his life-long ambition.

Scott has never had a singing lesson although two years ago he was among 14 others who sang on a charity single for Wish Upon A Star, released in Manchester. They recorded the song in a studio and he felt like a star for a day.

Scott’s friends and family are behind Scott and the local pub is covered in banners showing support for Scott’s dream.
