Liverpool Pride 2013 Showcases New Music Talent

Music fans making their way to Liverpool Pride are always spoilt for choice with the vast array of live acts to see throughout the day. This year is no exception, and for 2013 Pride is especially pleased to showcase the next big things coming out of the region and beyond.

The August 3 event will be headlined by X Factor star Amelia Lily and will feature other well-known performers including Agadoo hitmakers Black Lace, rock band My Forever and 90s dance legend Baby D.

As well as that, as part of Pride’s commitment to supporting and providing a platform for those just beginning their musical careers, organisers have made sure that first-timers have a chance to entertain the more than 50,000 visitors expected across the Pier Head and Stanley Street Quarter stages throughout the day.

On the main stage, this includes Huyton-based Tokyo Track, who won the chance to perform after coming top in Liverpool Pride and the Michael Causer Foundation’s Out On Stage unsigned act competition; and Liverpool R’n’B five-piece MiC Lowry - rapidly rising stars who have already had a successful 2013, having come runner up in MTV's Brand New Unsigned and winning the under 19s Rock the House Music competition. The boys, who are amassing a dedicated teen following, are mentored by MOBO Unsung winner Esco Williams, who wrote their songs Stand Down and Good Love.

Latest additions to the main stage line up include new pop R'n'B sensation Thomas Teago, as part of a hectic summer promo tour of some of the UK's biggest festivals ahead of his debut release. An up-and-coming songwriter, Thomas currently has songs being pitched for artists including Chris Brown, Carly Rae-Jepsen and Jason Derulo, and has performed alongside major artists including JLS, Professor Green, The Wanted, Dappy, Tulisa, Olly Murs, Tinchy Stryder and Pixie Lott.

All out dressed to impress with a personality to match,” Mila Falls has supported Ringo Starr on tour and been championed on Radio 1 by Annie Mac. Her debut album follows this summer, featuring co-writes with Grammy Award winning heavy-weights who have penned hits for the likes of Britney Spears and Outkast.

Jennifer Jewell is a pop/dance artist currently writing and recording her debut album. A previous winner of Radio City’s City Superstar competition, she is now signed to All Around the World records and has been recording and writing with Mike Di Scala.

Hailing from Liverpool, Adam Lyons is soon to make his international debut after signing a record deal with Furocious Music in the USA. Adam says his dance-pop music is focused on helping those who are heartbroken, bullied and suppressed, giving them hope for a brighter day. His debut album will be released later this year.

Daring to be different, wild child Lemon possesses all of the rock-star qualities you expect from an edgy, determined pop star. The singer-songwriter and dancer is releasing her first single Pussydrop this summer, which features in Hollywood movie Kick Ass 2.

The line-up also includes sibling duo Charlie and Clair, aka Killa Sista; Wigan-born singer-songwriter Jes Stretton; 19-year-old Essex boy Sam Callahan; eclectic girl group Doremi Fly; urban North West duo Click 22; Got to Dance finalists Dance Dynamix; and X Factor graduate Bradley Johnson, who shot to fame with his cover of Ed Sheeran’s A Team before becoming part of U Vibe.

Over on the Stanley Street Quarter stage, Liverpool singer Paul Halewood, Sense of Sound choir member Rosalie Galvin, acoustic soul and power pop singer Craig Cavanagh, Emma Lousha and Rhyl-based girl band Pretty Girl Rock will be performing.

Chair of Liverpool Pride Zoran Blackie said: “It is always exciting to be able to announce big headline acts every year at Liverpool Pride, and the performers we already know and love make the day really go with a swing.  But we are a free event, inclusive to all, and so it is just as important to us to use the day to showcase new talent, and create an opportunity for performers to be seen by a wider audience. Who knows – the new acts you see on stage this year could be the headliners of tomorrow.”
