THE VOICE FROM SALFORD HITS FINAL
 

Star date: 10th April 2012 

DAVID LIVERSIDGE HITS LIVE AND UNSIGNED

Salford's David Liversidge has reached the Regional Final Showcase of the UK's biggest original music competition, Live and Unsigned, which takes place next Saturday 14th April at the Royal Northern College of Music.

Now David, whose songs are showcased by his slick voice, is urging Salford people to come and support him in the live final. 

Full story here…


Never mind The Voice, X Factor and other cruise ship acts that infest tv, Live and Unsigned seems to be the proper talent spotting comp where hopefuls have to perform their own songs. At stake is a place in the Grand Final which takes place as part of the country's biggest indoor festival, Live Fest, at the O2 dome in July and a £10,000 prize.

Everyone, performing any kind of music, has had an equal chance of winning, with live auditions taking place throughout the country. It was from performing at one of these that singer/songwriter David Liversidge has got through to the Regional Final Showcase at the Royal Northern College of Music this Saturday.

David, 25, originally from Lincolnshire but now living in Salford, has been playing on the pub and club circuit in the area with his top brand of acoustic songs that include the lyrically optimistic get-it-together anthem, The Voice, and Art Café, a pop tribute to bar life in the rainy cities. David's got a top line of songs and can also sing a bit too…

"This is a fantastic opportunity to show what the Salford music scene has to offer" he says "I've had great support within the area since moving here so I'm really keen to give the city something to be proud of.......I cant wait for the live show…"
