THE PIANO WORKS EMERGING TALENT!
DON’T WAIT FOR THE CALL THAT WILL MAKE YOU FAMOUS, BE DISCOVERED AT LONDON’S ONLY NON-STOP LIVE MUSIC VENUE.
Calling all aspiring singers! Madonna started out as a cloakroom attendant, Debbie Harry, Mariah Carey, Gwen Stefani, Seal, Boy George, Jon Bon Jovi and Diddy all waited tables, and the Pope was a bouncer in Buenos Aries before he started singing in Rome. Everyone needs to start somewhere.
The Piano Works, where the audience decides the repertoire, is handing over their iconic stage to the musical acts of tomorrow with their ‘Emerging Talent’ Industry Night and is open to anyone who works or drinks in bars.
Located in an intimately lit listed Victorian warehouse, two remarkable grand pianos and a six piece backing band is at the heart of the Farrington venue. Singers from all over the country will be invited to take centre stage and sing with The Piano Works talented musicians.
A £100 bar tab will be offered each week to the most impressive performer, decided by a panel of expert judges. A £1000 cash prize will then be handed over to the winner of each 13-week heat and four quarterly winners will compete for a £5000 cash prize at the end of the year which The Piano Works urge to be used for their musical development.
Aside from the prize money, the biggest incentive for aspiring singers and songwriters will be an appreciative audience peppered with industry experts.
New music keeps a city young, and this is an incredible way for new artists to get themselves noticed. The Piano Works brings a professional dimension to the night whereby emerging talent are at the forefront of a great night out with £4 selected drinks including all the bartenders favourites and slabs of ribs, chips and coleslaw for £10.
Tristan Moffat General Manager of The Piano Works says: “Our team at The Piano Works have worked with people who we knew would become stars one day. The waitress who wants to be a singer, the resting actor who does odd shifts behind the bar, the busboy whose jokes are better than his speed. A common music industry criticism of upcoming talent is that they lack the experience of performing in front of a live audience, we not only celebrate live music, but also provide a reliable and reputable platform for new singers to be heard, appreciated and taken to the next level.”
