Putney Talent Shines
in a bid to be signed at UK's Biggest Live Talent Contest
Daniela Hogger from Putney has been given the big thumbs up by judges at the Live and Unsigned auditions. Along with the other most impressive acts at auditions, Daniela Hogger has made it through and will now be performing at the live stages of Live and Unsigned 2009.
Competing against hundreds of auditionees on the day and over 10,000 nationally, Daniela Hogger has now been given an opportunity to prove that they are the best in the region. Those who made it through the auditions will now take part in a live head to head battle in front of hundreds of audience members and a professional judging panel to win a place in the next round.
"At the moment life is a big surprise for me“, says Daniela „I know that it's not in my hands, there's a plan for me. And that's what keeps me going, I know that there are people out there who need to hear what's on my heart.“
Live and Unsigned is a national music competition for unsigned acts to compete live. With over 10,000 registrations in 2008 it is the biggest music talent search for original acts in the UK. Live and Unsigned’s popularity comes from its reputation for encouraging originality. The acts taking part are commended for doing their own thing; being individual, original and performing their own genre and style live!
Chris Grayston, Events Director of Live & Unsigned explains “This cannot be compared to any other talent searches as the acts talent is the show. We are interested in discovering and exposing talent at its best; live! It is as simple as we say Get Live, get signed.”
Daniela has evidently caught the judge’s eyes, now competing for a place in the National finals with the possibility of grabbing that break through recording contract. Competitors in the show will be asked to perform two songs; one of their best own written songs and the other is to be a creative cover.
The winners will be thrust into the media spotlight through television, radio and the press and furthermore all winners will all be invited on the UK Live and Unsigned Tour. The tour involves as many as 100 gigs across the UK including the chance to perform live at some well known festivals. Last year’s winners, Kiddo 360, have already gone on to win an award at the Vodafone Live Awards in October of last year, alongside the likes of The Ting Tings, Primal Scream and Kate Nash.
