Inigo was born in Chester and lives with his parents, brothers and sister (and 3 dogs!) in a small village in Cheshire. He is a pupil at a local school, who's staff are very supportive of his singing career. Inigo was discovered by prestigious vocal coach Annette Battam at the age of 9 - she has been his guide and teacher ever since. He was a Chorister at Chester Cathedral until the demands of his solo career made it necessary for him to step down.
At 11 Inigo gained a scholarship to Chester's Abbey Gate College and the following year recorded a CD of four songs accompanied by the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra. His voice has been likened to that of Jose Carreras at a similar age. He made an appearance on Granada's 'Afternoon Show', sang live at the Grand Prix Ball, the Dolce Vita Ball, and Royal Albert Hall. He has shared a stage with Beyonce Knowles & Dionne Warwick and has most recently performed on BBC1's Strictly Come dancing impressing fellow singer Aled Jones and veteran entertainer Bruce Forsyth.
