Quite out of the blue I heard about a competition being run by Channel 4 and decided to send off a demo CD of mine. Somehow I managed to make it through all of the auditions and into the final 6, and now they will be flying us to New York City to film a documentary about us trying to make it in the tough NYC music industry.

I keep pinching myself to be honest and I’m ridiculously nervous, but opportunities like this don’t come around very often and I’m going to give it everything I’ve got.
