Howarth Timber and Building Supplies has been conducting a search for the next big name in live music. The Building supplies company has been a major sponsor of Local Music Live, a scheme that was created in order to put more new musical talent on to the radio. The competition has reached it conclusion, with Howarth Timber and Building Supplies naming Feliicia Eliza as their favourite act.
Singers/songwriters and bands were invited to submit their songs as part of the Local Music Live initiative, and there were more than 100 entries submitted in one month. The performers submitted their songs in order to be in with a chance to be played on local radio by DJs from across the UK.
A judging panel was also created, consisting of individuals from Local Music Line and Howarth Timber. The judges narrowed down the impressive list of entrants in order to name Feliicia as their favourite act. Feliicia’s song was highlighted by the staff working at Howarth Timber’s Manchester branch as a potential contender for the top spot.
Now that she has been named the winner of the initiative, the singer and guitarist has been invited to Redwall Studios, located in Greater Manchester, in order to record her music. Feliicia will also have the opportunity to create a music video for one of her tracks. This music video will be created with the support of Harris, a creative agency that is based in Leeds.
It is great for the construction supplies company to be involved with a project such as this, showing support for local undiscovered talent is central to Howarth Timber and Building Supplies’ focus on supporting local communities. In the past Howarth Timber stores have sponsored a number of local gigs in order to show their support, therefore the chance to expand this support to a nationwide initiative was a great opportunity for the company.
