Last night Tileyard Education hosted the Final Showcase of the Second Season of the Vinyl Scratch.
On the first Tuesday of each month, Tileyard Education has graced the Two Tribes stage with 12 new acts, signed up based on a first come first served basis. The event has also featured guests including drag queens, Peter Hince (Freddie Mercury’s 12-year roadie), The Voice UK and Channel 4’s new TV series “Songland”.
Each month the event has attracted new and emerging UK and international talent, as well as old friends and Tileyard Education’s own masters students. Over the series, the top 2 performers have been selected each month and invited back to take part in the final showcase.
Last night, the past rounds’ winners returned to play to a panel of industry judges from Tileyard Music, Big Indie Records, HotVox, PMR Records and Ripple Red Management. The judges voted for their favourite acts to amount to 3 final winners.
A special thanks to all of the performers, who all gave an amazing performance. Final performers included Will Hanco, Greg Noyce, Eye Cue, Olliday, Yorkia, Ed Butler, Giuseppe Basco, Sunny Gray, Vincent Bugozi and Kileza.
It was a hard choice for the judges, but they the favourites were as follows…
Sunny Gray came in third place, winning a free day of studio time in TYe London worth £500!
Second place went to Vincent Bugozi won a place on our Summer Songwriting Camp worth £699.
First prize went to the amazing Kileza, who won a place on our Barcelona Songwriting Camp, worth £899!
The Vinyl Scratch will take a 3-month break now, whilst preparations are made for the event to return bigger and better than ever.
Look out for Season Three this October, dates TBC, what this space!
