Bigga Fish in association with vInspired and GRM Daily Presents the Just Talent Tour!
Visiting 8 cities across the UK, Bigga Fish's 'Just Talent' tour will seek out and shine a light on the best up and coming musical talent from around the UK, in association with vInspired and GRM Daily.
Launching the 'Just Talent' tour in 2013, the programme will begin in February holding open auditions in 8 cities across the UK; London, Birmingham, Sheffield, Newport, Liverpool, Leeds, Newcastle and Manchester. The auditions will give young people the chance to showcase their skills to a band of 4 industry judges comprising of booking agents, A&Rs, marketing professionals and a representative from the Bigga Fish street team.
From the open auditions, 10 semi-finalists will be chosen in each city. Through profiles set up for each of them on the 'Just Talent...' website, each act will be given a fact sheet on PR and marketing and need to encourage people to vote for them.
These 80 semi-finalists will be invited to return and perform at a showcase event within their city in April, in front of the 4 judges and a small audience. The judges will choose one overall winner per city, taking into account the voting that has taken place prior to the event.
The 8 finalists will be invited to attend a development weekend during May half-term where they will receive vocal coaching, take part in stage presence workshops, and rehearse with a live band. This will prepare them for the Grand Finale in London where the 8 finalists will perform to an audience of 500 people. The top 3 acts chosen by the judges at the Grande Finale will be rewarded with a great selection of industry prizes including studio time, a professional music video, a PR package and song-writing workshops.
The industry judges include: Fiona Ramsay (BMG, Music World, Stoked PR), Michael Lawrence (booking agent -- the Hub Entertainment), Shaurav D'Silva (A&R -- Universal /3beat Records) and Posty (Co-founder -- GRM Daily).
'Bigga Fish is a positive, diverse and unique organisation of young people, catering for young people. It gives them the space, support and freedom to express themselves. I have always been honoured to be involved in their events and projects, and I am extremely proud of the young organisers and performers.'

URBAN CLASSIC 2012
Urban Classic is a ground breaking concept bringing together Urban music with Orchestras it is the brainchild of Bigga Fish and Serious who have been working in partnership with the BBC Symphony Orchestra over 2012 to make something truly spectacular.
This video charts our story from the early days of the workshops writing the music, through to the sold out performance at the Barbican resulting in the very first time classical music has ever been broadcast on BBC Radio1! The video finishes with an epic show for 12,000 people as part of the Olympics festival run by Create, where Ed Sheeran makes a surprise appearance alongside Devlin, Fazer, Ms. Dynamite, Skepta and BBK.
Urban Classic will be back in 2013, Bigga and better... stay tuned
