Young Men Society formed only three years ago but they move and sound like it’s been forever. While Josh was born and raised in Sydney, Nathan moved over from Cheshire in England and Andi is originally from Indonesia.
Nathan wanted to take a break from college and jumped at his brother’s suggestion to join him in Australia six years ago. ‘Being in Australia helped me find my love for music and entertainment. If i hadn’t made the move I don’t think I would be doing any of this; my mum wanted me to be a plumber in the UK!’
They all discovered they could move and sing when they were young. Andi, Nate and Josh all met through their love of dance. Like their idols Michael Jackson and Chris Brown, they combine their two passions for music and dance and see it as their biggest strength.
With YMS formed they wanted to try their luck at the auditions for X Factor Australia. ‘We honestly didn’t think we were going to get past the first round,’ Josh laughs. ‘All we had in our minds was that we wanted to put on a great show for the audience,’ Nathan says. That mentality took Young Men Society all the way to the X Factor top eight, where week by week their unique and unforgettable performances created TV magic. See them at Twin Towns on Saturday.
