BBC Introducing in Merseyside.


On Saturday 17th June, I was in the throws of chaperoning a show at The  Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts where I work as a singing teacher for their 4:19 academy, when I received a Twitter notification.  When I finally got the chance to check it, I saw it was from @bbcmerseyside…

I had no idea so obviously, I was shocked and instantly opened the iPlayer app to listen.  Unfortunately, with 20 teens in “show mode”, it wasn’t happening! So I retweeted, posted on Facebook and decided to listen to it at home with a glass of something nice!

I got home at 11pm and sat down to listen and I was surprised that the song they chose was ‘One Reason’, I had assumed it was ‘Can’t We Just Be Friends’! And the comments were lovely too!

Here’s the show if you want to listen on iPlayer…


I still can’t believe I was played as part of BBC Introducing, it’s a huge confidence boost and Im so grateful! Getting the email after and seeing the word ‘Broadcast’ on my BBC Introducing account is a great feeling considering that just 6 months ago, I nearly gave up on musical journey completely!

One Reason will be part of the EP due to be released July 2017.  A Concert Window gig will also be announced in the near future.

Thanks for reading!
