The Great Escape Festival, perhaps one of the biggest showcases for emerging artists in the UK kicks off today! For the first time ever, Music Gateway will be hosting a showcase of its very own at The Pipeline in Brighton on Saturday. Taking place amidst the chaos that is The Great Escape, three artists from our artist development and music promotions roster will be taking to the stage to show off their artistic talents! As well as this, we wanted to give our members the chance to play and the chosen winner of this slot is artist Amber T! (More about Amber below).
The lineup includes some incredible upcoming acts! Set time below…
Molly. – 2:30PM & 4:30PM
Joshua Lloyd – 1:30PM & 3:30PM
Calum Jones – 2:00PM & 4:00PM
Amber T – 1:00 PM & 3:00 PM
Creative, confident and pioneering in her sound, Amber’s talent led her to perform at the world famous The Shard, where she became the first acoustic performer to play the Open Deck. Amber has even recorded at Metropolis Studios and at Tileyard Studios in London. Yes, that’s the same Tileyard where the UK’s biggest Music Industry network event is held (and she was the youngest artist to ever perform there)!
Her first single TICK TOCK was recorded with Mega Asian/British Producer Dr Zeus. The video was filmed with Director Luke Biggins (Joss Stone, Stefflon Don, Wstrn, Steel Banglez etc.) and Producer Rebekah Bird. The track was released in the early hours of the 7th April after a Radio One exclusive play and interview. If that wasn’t impressive enough, within four days the track had reached over one million YouTube views! This has led to TV interviews on the BBC South East Today, numerous press interviews, a live session on BBC Radio Kent, BBC Introducing and BBC Introducing Featured Artist.
