Just Kath Hits Unsigned Final

Kath Edmonds, a former Salford University student, has reached the final of the 2010 Live and Unsigned contest, and competes against lots of other finalists this Sunday, March 7th at The Willows on Weaste Lane.

Full story here…


Katherine Edmonds, 25, has strummed her way as 'Just Kath' to the finals of the established 2010 Live And Unsigned competition, fighting off tough opposition from hundreds of other entrants.

Gaining a 1st in Popular Music and Recording from Salford University, she is no stranger to the music scene after drumming for locally respected bands Little Tremors and Insilence.

Learning piano at the age of 6, drums at 11 and mastering guitar and bass at the age of 17, Kath says "I've always wanted to pursue my passion for music and the Live and Unsigned 2010 competition gave me the perfect platform. I felt frustrated just playing drums and then one day the drive to get up on stage and perform my own material took over".

Kath has already caught the eye of music moguls, such as British producer, Hugh Padgham, who has produced the likes of, Kate Bush, Phil Collins and has had success with Sting and McFly, while she was drumming for her former bands.

The competition accepts all genres of music from heavy rock to rap, which allows Kath to show off her unique style of electric, acoustic rock pop.

Instantly making it to the next round, Kath says: "I am really excited about the possibility of progressing even further through to the national heats. There is a lot of talent there but I think that I bring something different to the competition and hope the judges see the passion and determination that I put into every performance."

If she progresses through this round, Kath will go through to the area finals, where the overall winner will win £30,000, a recording contract and a slot at the Live and Unsigned Festival at the O2 Arena in North Greenwich in July.

Many people are supporting Kath, including her boss, Jason Horsman, Managing Director of the Dialogue Marketing Division at Golley Slater.

"We're really proud of Kath" he says "She's an extremely talented musician and we'll all be rooting for her every step of the way. We wish her the very best of luck."

Tickets for the regional final can be bought on the door at The Willows for £7.50.

ARTISTS TO CHALLENGE HOUSING POLICIES WHILE LIVING IN LUXURY HOUSE

'You can't even stop your car to take in the breathtaking sterilization of the place...'

Last week, artists moved into a stunning Urban Splash house in the new Springfield Lane development as part of a year-long project called Tenancy in which they will explore 'what it's like to live in a city negotiating rapid change' and 'who is benefitting'.

The Springfield Lane development, being branded as in 'Manchester', has no affordable housing and avoided hundreds of thousands of pounds in planning fees. Can the artist project, actually sponsored by Tom Bloxham and Urban Splash, make a difference?
