"Instead of asking 'Why?', we should be saying: 'Why not?' That's always been my attitude, from when I was a small kid. I don't recognise those so-called boundaries. In music, you can do anything you want."
After captivating the nation's heart as the winner of Britain's Got Talent 2017, multi-talented pianist, composer and producer, Tokio Myers releases his debut album, 'Our Generation'.
Tokio Myers became a sensation when more than ten million people tuned in to watch him be crowned as the winner of the 12th series of Britain's Got Talent. Since then the Londoner with Jamaican heritage has been writing and recording in the studio - fusing an array of musical influences that have shaped him as an artist, ranging from classical and cinematic to hip-hop, dance and 90s' soul to create a totally unique new sound.
Tokio grew up in a deprived area of North London before being given a coveted piano scholarship at the Royal College of Music. A stint as a studio musician led to recording and touring with some of the biggest names in music including Amy Winehouse, The Police, Kanye West and Mr Hudson. Whilst being a relatively successful session musician, Tokio wanted to take the centre stage and so decided to enter BGT.
