As if there wasn’t enough talent in the area already, Balsall Common Festival organisers are on the lookout for more with the launch of the 2015 edition of Balsall’s Got the Voice.
With the recent success of Karl Loxley (BBC Voice UK), Paris Georgia (with her recent No.2 in the iTunes download charts) and Berkswell Cricket Club’s The Neales (Britain’s Got Talent Finalists tomorrow), there really isn’t a better time for local talent to draw inspiration to enter a talent contest.
19 year old former Heart of England School pupil Paris Georgia is feeling on top of the world right now as she prepares to launch her new EP, which she finished recording last week.
The talented Country-Pop singer-songwriter is enjoying regular airplay on BBC Radio and last night released a sneak preview of her forthcoming Stranger to You video on Facebook. The full version of the video is set for online release next Wednesday (25th March 2015), followed by the new iTunes EP release on Friday 17th April 2015.
Brumbeat Music Ltd are bringing an evening of top live music to The Lant on Meeting House Lane on Friday 20th March, with tickets for a 2 course meal with 3 top acts on open sale to the community.
A top line-up includes two local rising stars familiar with Birmingham’s famous music venue The JamHouse and one veteran regularly seen at Liverpool’s iconic Cavern Club, the venue famous for launching the career of The Beatles.
Birmingham based 18 year old Esther Turner is accustomed to appearing on the big stage, having already supported Katy Perry at the NEC’s LG Arena. The hugely popular 18 year old singer-songwriter has a sizeable fanbase, with bags of talent and personality.
Esther Turner – Open a Smile (orginal song)
19 year old Paris Georgia, a star of last year’s Balsall Common Festival, is no stranger to the big stage either, having performed at Wembley Arena, with her latest song currently enjoying airplay on BBC Radio. The self styled Country Pop singer songwriter is busy recording a new EP.

19 year old singer-songwriter Paris Georgia generously handed over some of her creative process to Facebook fans by inviting them to choose her latest Song of the Month, a cover of Sam Smith’s ‘Stay With Me’, released last night.
The former Heart of England School pupil is no stranger to the limelight, with appearances at Wembley Arena under her belt already and collection of original material studio-recorded previously in 2013. Paris is already well-known on the local music scene, but is enjoying a big surge in followers locally, following performances in Balsall’s Got the Voice through August and September, as part of this year’s Balsall Common Festival celebrations.
