Junior Star Singer takes to the road again and this year on more than 20 radio stations across the UK. It gives young budding singers and songwriters the chance to showcase their talents to music industry professionals. The prize is an opportunity to have a track recorded with a high profile producer and have the track played across the radio tour on all 20 stations the following year. A remarkable chance for any young artist who wants to break into the industry. This year founder and main presenter Amanda Neale has invited some exciting new judges to listen to the talent across the competition.
We have Tom Manning, Director of the famous Monnow Valley Studios where the likes of Simple Minds, Coldplay, Oasis, Skunk Anansie, Phil Collins, Stereophonics and many more have recorded their works. Tom has produced amazing legendary artists with his team and developed up and coming new ones.
