From Paris with love

19 year old singer-songwriter and former Heart of England pupil Paris Tredell, better known on the local music scene these days as Paris Georgia, has released her new Song of the Month for fans old and new.


The Paris Georgia fan club is growing at an incredible rate locally, following her recent performances in the hotly contested Balsall’s Got the Voice competition, the finals of which took place at the Balsall Common Festival on Saturday 20th September 2014.



Many festival-goers were shocked when Paris didn’t make the cut for the Top 4 sing-off, a decision which underlined the strength of competition and difficult job the judges had on their hands on Finals Day.

Dylan flies the flag for Lady K School


[Dylan Baldwin]

9 year old Dylan Baldwin flew the flag for Lady Katherine School at the Berkswell Royal British Legion on Friday 8th August as he won his place in the Finals of Balsall’s Got the Voice, the music talent section of this year’s Balsall Common Festival.

Dylan now carries the hopes of Lady K into the finals at The Lant on Saturday 20th September 2014 and we all wish him well.
