Los Angeles, Jan 18 (IANS) Singer James Arthur feels that growing up with no money for many years had helped him “shape his work ethics”.
The 28-year-old star, who has now become a big name in the music industry with his hits like “Say You Won’t Let Go”, “Impossible” and “Safe Inside”, opened up about his early struggles and working in bands, reported Femalefirst.
“Being in bands and plugging away with not many opportunities and no money for many years really shaped me and taught me about work ethic. It really made me appreciate what I had now, because it was so hard before that.
“X Factor provided me with a platform that has launched me and given me some longevity. I often think about starting a band again, doing my solo stuff and a band. I grew up in bands. Kurt Cobain is one of the reasons I started doing music because I just loved to watch them rock out. It’s something I love to do,” Arthur said.
