So now that the doors are opened the work ethic that I have always had is no longer standing in his shadow pushing his career, now it's shining so I can have my own.
Donovan Whycliffe Bromwell has been a regular face on the streets of Nottingham for the past few years. After doing all of the first album myself, I wasn't sure whether to put my nose in and to try and have a big part in it or whether I should just let him at it. I'm trying to be strong when I say it, but it ain't easy! This week, they hit the UK for the first time supporting The Dillinger Escape Plan, so we spoke to guitarist Arthur Shepherd to find out more...
is an Australian singer, dancer, songwriter, model, fashion designer, and actress.
The sister of Kylie Minogue, she rose to prominence in the early 1980s for her roles in the Australian television talent show Young Talent Time with another known fellow Australian Tina Arena and the soap opera Home and Away, before beginning her career as a pop singer in the early 1990s.
When he told her the woman he's dating is an ex-girlfriend he's 'reconnecting with', she appeared disappointed and said, 'You have done a good job to keep it quiet.'Fans of the show bombarded Twitter with theories on which ex-girlfriend Kris might be rekindling his romance with, and Dannii's name was frequently mentioned.
So at this place in my career I know he is one of the reason doors are opening up for me. And we both have been blessings to each other in that area.
The former couple previously attended the prestigious awards together back in 2009, but split two years ago.
Dannii is currently dating multi-platinum songwriter and producer Adrian Newman, while Kris has moved on with model Maddy King.
Nowadays he's the guy who sings for a quid in the city centre and lives in a sheltered housing complex. When I was a little baby I remember being in the living room with my mum and she put a tape on and we were dancing. I felt like if I stayed around I might dry things up for her. Sometimes I think about it and think that it was good that Chris Porter did it, but at other times I think I should have put more into it. After I went into my own mind and deep into myself. It's hard to remember much of what happened, but it was a downward spiral that I couldn't get out of.
A decade ago, however, in what must now seem like a previous life to him, he was an upcoming soul singer, signed to MCA, selling out the Hammersmith Odeon, supporting the Godfather of Soul James Brown and dating Aussie babe Dannii Minogue. Not many, however get as close to the big time as Whycliffe did, only to see it all crumble in front of him. I was born in the city hospital and I was brought up in Broxtowe. I went to college for a bit to try and better myself, but my attendance was poor so they kicked me out. My dad used to play the guitar in the church and he taught me how to play keyboards. When I was touring my Rough Side album (1994), I played at the Hammersmith Odeon and she came to meet me after. Sometimes you see somebody and think they're really nice and you don't want to spoil them.
In 2001, Minogue further returned to musical success with the release of her biggest worldwide hit to date, "Who Do You Love Now?
