Talented TeenStar Lucy from Paisley is Loud’n’Proud!

Lucy is 14 and is a third year pupil at Gleniffer High. She was given her first guitar when she 12 for her birthday by a family friend and began learning the guitar by herself.

It wasn’t until she went to the School of Rock run by Loud’n’Proud that she really found her stride and began singing.

She has performed with her bands at several Loud’n’Proud gigs, including gigs at the Town Hall and the Spiegeltent during last year’s Spree festival. She plays lots of different genres in an acoustic style and likes lots of different types of music.

TeenStar is a nationwide competition and last year’s winner was The X Factor finalist Luke Friend and there are great prizes up for grabs. Lucy received great feedback from the judges during her first round and tickets are available – the audience also get the chance to vote for their favourite acts so it would be great to garner some support for her. The next round is at the Old Fruitmarket in Glasgow on April 5th, tickets are £8.

Live Gig in Paisley.

You can catch Lucy This Friday 21st March and next Friday 28th March at Saporito on Gauze Street, you can find out lots more by visiting Lucy’s Facebook Page here..

One contestant who has evidently caught the judge’s eye is local talent Rachel Patrick, who is now in the running to follow in the footsteps of previous winner Luke Friend and compete for a place in the Grand Final. Thousands of hopefuls entered TeenStar nationwide and hundreds of auditionees queued patiently on the day for their turn to impress the judges. Those who made it through the audition stage will now take part in a live Regional head-to-head battle alongside the best talent in their area. They’ll be performing in front of hundreds of audience members and a professional judging panel to win a place at the National Grand Final.

Chris Grayston, Events Coordinator for TeenStar comments “We are looking to find an act that has something unique to offer, another Birdy or Luke Friend that can go all the way, with both the ability to deliver a strong live performance but also potential to become a professional recording artist. There is so much talent out there I’m sure we can find that star again!”

The competition is divided into age categories – ‘Late Teens’ (16-19), ‘Mid Teens’ (13-15) and a special category searching for the stars of tomorrow, the Pre-Teens!
