BBC Music Introducing showcase: FREE ENTRY! on Friday 3rd February 2023
- SOLAR EYES
They're a Worcestershire band who have had received plays from Steve Lamacq at BBC 6 Music as well as BBC Introducing in Hereford & Worcester.
Proven themselves to be a strong contender in the world of alternative rock, they ended up being signed to same roster as Aerosmith, Blink 182, Billy Idol, Guns n Roses and Bob Dylan in 2022.
They’ve landed a slot at next year’s SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas and music has been featured on Sky Sports, BBC One’s Match Of The Day and BBC podcast series ‘Bulldozer’. Frontman Glenn Smyth, who's from Wythall in North Worcestershire, is also the clinical coding manager for Worcestershire Acute Hospitals.
They’re a five piece indie rock band that originally formed during the COVID-19 pandemic. Finding Bella have since been reviewed as "one of the big breakout bands predicted for 2022" with one review commenting that "if their statement release is anything to go by, Finding Bella's experiences are about to get a whole lot bigger". In their own words, Finding Bella aim to deliver a 'punchy blast of guitar and synth led melodies within their music leaving you with little choice but to get up, jump in and immerse yourself" within the band's unique, Indie New-Wave sounds.
Alex is a 22 year old self taught Droitwich singer-songwriter who says he came to relatively recently as his escape from studying in Bournemouth. Influenced by Coldplay, Bruce Springsteen, Sam Fender and his mum singing in the car, singer Alex also brings with him writers Angus and Patrick, plus Josh on production and Tess mastering. He's a Worcestershire lad through and through, with family in Droitwich and Fernhill Heath, and went to Worcester Sixth Form College. Recently, BBC Hereford & Worcester put Alex’s music forward to BBC Radio 1 and his single ‘Fairytale of Emotions’ was played on Gemma Bradley’s Introducing show.
Euan is a singer-songwriter born in Redditch but now in Liverpool, plying his trade as a graduate of LIPA. He’s got a great following on TikTok with over 21,000 followers and nearly a million likes on his videos. BBC Hereford & Worcester love his music so much, he's been their BBC Introducing Artist of the Week, he took part in their Collaborator Generator and Cover Roulette. Euan Blackman crafts introspective and evergreen songs for rainy road trips with wistful gazes. There is something of the past in his music, not retrospect, but memories we all share, tales of the human condition in soft focus. He is regularly enchanted by the magic that defines the work of Phoebe Bridgers and Claude Debussy.
Lily Rose is a young singer-songwriter, whose music resides in an angelic pop aura. She cites Lizzy McAlpine Holly Humberstone Alice Kristiansen as her main influences. She’s also part of award-winning acapella group at the University Of Birmingham "the Uptone Girls" - where she is studying as a third year English & creative writing student
