Emily Bragg set to 'Rock the House'

Today I announced Emily Bragg’s song ‘Under the Sun’ as the Makerfield nomination for Parliamentary competition Rock the House.

Wigan boasts a history of impressive musicians and today’s generation is every bit as talented and it is a pleasure to endorse Emily Bragg’s work to the panel of industry-leading judges who will preside over determining the overall winners. I wish Emily the best of luck as the competition progresses!

Sponsored by industry and supported by a host of celebrity Patrons, Rock the House is a fantastic opportunity for British musicians to gain priceless exposure and win fantastic prizes.

The competition offers the opportunity for the UK’s ‘creatives’ to have their work judged by the leading lights of industry and win prizes ranging from festival slots, studio time and equipment to name but a few!

Emily Bragg (aged 20) lives in Ashton in Makerfield and is a singer/song writer. Her musical influences include Adele, Amy Winehouse, Eva Cassidy, Pink and Kelly Clarkson.

Emily Bragg said, 'I first heard about the competition online. I thought this would be a great opportunity to get my music heard in different circles. The chance of playing to MPs in the House of Commons was a big draw as this is a once in a lifetime experience. It’s not always easy to get gigs and your music heard, especially in the current economic climate. Who knows, applying for this competition and taking chances just may give a musician a break they need!'
