Local young talents to perform at showcase

26th January 2015

OMG Herefordshire finalists to perform live at The Courtyard to determine which act will win time in a professional recording studio and the opportunity to perform at Nozstock 2015!

OMG Herefordshire is back and ready to showcase the best of the county’s young musicians at the county’s leg of the region-wide OMG Live competition.

We are sorry to announce that EMO, the company running OMG Live, have had to cancel the show that was scheduled to take place at the LG Arena in Birmingham on 19th April, and also the accompanying master-classes due to unforeseen circumstances.  It was originally planned that the winner of OMG Herefordshire would perform at this event.

However, we are pleased to announce that thanks to support from The Music Pool’s partners, the show will go on!  The winning act of this Sunday’s OMG Herefordshire will be awarded a day in KJM studios to record a short demo of their music and a performance slot at Nozstock festival 2015.  These are both excellent opportunities for a young musician starting out in their career and we are very grateful to both KJM Studios and Nozstock festival for supporting The Music Pool’s continued effort to nurture young musical talent in Herefordshire.

The event will take place at The Courtyard Centre for the Arts on Sunday 8th February at 6.30pm and promises to be a lively and varied line-up of singers, rappers and instrumentalists.

Finalists chosen for the Herefordshire heat are:

Ashley Sey
- 17 year old Rapper/Singer from Hereford
Amelia Hunter
- 15 year old Singer/Songwriter from Bartestree
Jasmine Jennings
- 16 year old Singer from Kington
- Band from Leominster comprising Henry Barnett (16 - Guitar/Vocals), Oliver Gray (16 - Guitar/Vocals) & Patrick Fotheringham (17 - Drums/Vocals)

“We’re really excited by the acts that have come through this year.We are once again highly impressed by the standards young Herefordian musicians are capable of and look forward to seeing them perform in person!” said Rob Strawson, director of The Music Pool and member of the short-listing panel.
