Tokio Myers is the piano playing superstar who won Britain's Got Talent with his incredible skills. He put in a heart-stopping final performance that wowed the nation and won him the title after his rendition of Rag n Bone man’s hit Human. He beat 11 other acts to scoop the top prize of £250,000 and will perform at this year’s Royal Variety Performance in front of HM The Queen.

A chance encounter during his final year at the Royal College of Music was an example of the almost karmic spirit that seems to have hovered over Tokio's life. Doing some session work in a central London studio one day, he found himself eavesdropping on the music being made by a band in the studio next door, and liked what he heard. "It was this really cool stuff," says Tokio. "I remember peeping through the glass and thinking, 'I want to do that.' And I went in and asked if I could join in, which they were totally cool about. So I laid down some piano, and then two weeks later, I got a call from the main guy, who said: 'We're about to go off on tour, do you want to come along?' And that opened up a whole new world for me, touring with artists such as Amy Winehouse, Kanye, Erykah Badu, Sting, learning about technology, live performance, working with guitarists and drummers – which all fed into what I'm doing now. Talk about serendipity."

The 32-year-old former session pianist’s debut album, Our Generation is available for pre-order now from his website, and he kicks off his tour in April 2018.
