TWO Swindon brothers will go head to head with the X Factor this month, as they attempt to score a Christmas number one hit with their new charity single.

The song, Christmas Without You, saw 25 top YouTube stars jet into Amsterdam from more than five countries to record the single over three packed days.

Among those appearing on the song is 15 year old Toby Randall, a singing star from Northampton with almost half a million YouTube subscribers.

Monica Church, a 21 year old lifestyle vlogger from the United States whose top YouTube video has been watched almost 3.5 million times, also stars.

The new single is the first major release by brothers Taylor, 22 and Kyran Jones, 21, who live in Redhouse.

Together with business partner Ed Brew they run a talent management company, Hello Management.

The boys have their sights on a Christmas number one – but need to beat off stiff competition if they’re to win the top spot.

So far X Factor winners have topped the Christmas singles chart four times in the last ten years.

Taylor, a former Greendown School pupil who found a huge fan base as a Belgium-based pop star, said: “If we’re going against the X-factor we need five million streams.”

The charity single, which cost just under quarter of a million pounds to produce, has been sponsored by brands including Rode Microphones, Sing King Karaoke and Shazam.

Half of the profits from the song will be donated to Make a Wish foundation, a charity that grants‘wishes’ to terminally ill children.

Kyran said: “They’re a great charity. Everyone knows them. We just like what they do.”

The brothers hope to raise up to £50,000 for the charity.

The Christmas single is a change of direction for former pop star Taylor who has now turned his hand to managing music artists.

He established Hello Management at the beginning of the year and the company already represents 18 artists including Grammy Award-winning duo the Jackie Boyz. The company plans to open an office in London next year.

“We are growing so fast, we have so much work and not enough man power,” he said.

“It is amazing going from watching and listening to Christmas songs on the radio as a child, to growing up in the music business, and then actually creating a contender for a Christmas number one.”

Despite his ambition for the Christmas number one the music executive’s favourite Christmas song remains still Mariah Carey's classic ‘All I Want for Christmas is You’.

“I grew up listening to Mariah Carey. My dad was a mega-fan. We had no choice but to be ear-wormed by Mariah Carey,” he said.

'Christmas Without You’ is available to stream or watch on YouTube now. The song can be downloaded from iTunes, Amazing and Google Play.
