Al Goodwin, once the frontman of York band This Happy Breed, is calling on former fans to help get him back in the studio.
And it’s not just any old studio either – it’s Abbey Road.
Al’s song, All Colours Shine, has made it to the final of the Fame/Music Coalition’s Stripped Back competition, aimed at discovering the UK’s best singer-songwriters.
The winner will get the chance to share a stage with iTunes chart-topping singer-songwriter Nina Nesbitt, produce a track at Abbey Road with award-winning producer Eric Appapoulay and perform in front of industry professionals and media in London.
How to vote for Al
Al, who fronted This Happy Breed from 1990 to 1993, during which time they won the Soundtrack 90 battle of the bands and played The Marquee, said:
I’ve now dropped back a bit with just a day of voting remaining. It’s an underdog story; not like Leicester, but still a tough call for me to survive to the final three.
That call is made even tougher by the fact that voting closes at 4pm on May 6 – when three industry judges will then award his track a mark out of ten and multiply it by his public vote.
