Union J are gearing up to make their long awaited comeback this year and new music is closer than ever as the trio consisting of JJ Hamblett, Jaymi Hensley, and Josh Cuthbert have officially signed to a new record label.
The boys found fame back in 2012 when they auditioned for the UK X Factor as Triple J before show bosses added George Shelley to the group. The were then renamed Union J and after coming in fourth place on the talent contest they were signed to Sony and released a string of hit singles including ‘Carry You’ and ‘You Got It All’. They also released their top-ten self-titled LP and follow up ‘You Got All’ album which peaked at number 28, via the label and embarked on a huge UK Arena tour.
Then in 2015 they were shockingly dropped by Sony Music and theN one year later George Shelley left the band to focus on solo projects. Shelley was later replaced by ex Stereo Kicks member Casey Johnson. Lots was promised from the new-look Union J, but less than twelve months later and no new music, Johnson left the band leaving Hamblet, Cuthbert and Hensley as a trio once more.
