LNP Promotions are proud to announce Emily Middlemas will be supporting Hue and Cry at Paisley town hall.
“We’re delighted that Emily Middlemas is supporting us – we’ve been giving young Scottish musical talent a platform in this way for many years, and this continues the tradition.” says Pat Kane.
He added: “Ever since Linda got off the station at Paisley Gilmour Street – and that’s the true story behind the song – we’ve always had a special connection to the town. It’s going to be quite an occasion playing the Town Hall. We’re very much looking forward to hearing from everyone there”.
Teenage singer-song writing sensation, Emily Middlemas, although still a young lady making her way in the music industry, is in constant demand to play her music live – performing at gigs, charity events, and festivals all over Britain. And now back in Paisley, performing as part of a fundraiser for youth music charity Loud N Proud, where it all began for Emily.
She told us, “My brothers were part of Loud n Proud about 10 years ago and I used to go and see them play in The Rock Orchestra. When I was at a practice session one night Tommy who runs the organisation asked me to sing a song through the PA which was set up. He must have liked it because he said ‘I need to get you in a band’ and he did. I am looking forward to working with Loud n Proud again and getting into the rehearsal studios with my old band mates.
I’m very excited to support Hue and Cry and playing in Paisley. Although I am a Glasgow girl I have a huge connection to Paisley through Loud n Proud. I started my career in the town and it will always be a special place for me.”
Recently making headlines by reaching the final stages in The X Factor, judged by mentor and Girls Aloud singer Cheryl Cole as being just a little too young and inexperienced! Cheryl obviously didn’t know that Emily was already a relative veteran of the stage.
Starting out at Loud N Proud – at the age of 11, in only two years she was the lead singer in ‘The Wee Band’ a group put together at the school. The young band went on to play to live audiences all over Britain, entering and winning Best Rock Band – Live and Unsigned UK (competing against adults), reaching the final of Roc Da Mic – UK and winning overall best act at Quest for Talent. Emily also announced in 2014 as overall winner of the TeenStar singing competition.
The Wee Band and Emily had racked up a wealth of experience, playing live at festivals up and down the country and after a break they are teaming up again to perform Emily’s new work for the first time in a full line up.
Tommy McGrory, who runs Loud N Proud, says; “Emily shot to fame through X Factor but behind all the hype and sparkle of the TV show many viewers didn’t know the real Emily. I’ve always thought she had something exceptional and to be back playing with her friends she met at Loud n Proud will be a special moment for me. I’m sure the Paisley crowd will be in for a fantastic performance.
It’s very supportive of Hue and Cry to give our young students an opportunity to share the bill with them. It’ll be a fantastic experience for them all.”
Promoter Gary Kerr of LNP added his own vote of thanks, “We are extremely grateful to Hue and Cry for playing this show in Paisley as a fundraiser for Loud N Proud and offering Emily and the band a platform to showcase their exceptional talent.”
Emily is currently working in London writing and producing her own material with plans to release an album soon. She is on the radar of Modest Management, (One Direction and Little Mix) and of SONY – one of the world’s biggest record labels.
