Who will be the winner of Brand New Star 2014?
The 10 Grand Finalists will be centre stage at Central Coast Leagues Club on Friday night, vying for a prize package that could set the winner on the road to stardom.
This year’s contest has unearthed some amazing new talent, with entries coming from interstate, as well as the local region and other parts of New South Wales.
Two heats, held at Everglades Country Club and Club Wyong, resulted in the following artists being selected to go on to the Grand Final:
The Fold – Minet Masters and Jake Fotheringham
Friday night’s program will kick off at 7.30, with all Grand Finalists performing two songs.
At stake is $3000 in prizemoney courtesy of Central Coast Leagues Club, a one song recording with Simon Johnson at Hillbilly Hut Studio, distributed to media by Daryl Kirkup at CRS, plus a performance workshop intensive with country music star Gina Jeffreys.
The Brand New Star Grand Final not only promises an evening of great entertainment, but will also showcase a wealth of new country music talent.
Previous winners have gone on to forge outstanding careers in the music industry. Inaugural winner Makaylie Foodey, who has recently returned from Nashville where she rubbed shoulders with some of country music’s greats, will perform during the evening.
Makaylie will also be on the judging panel, along with renowned musician and producer Rod McCormack and todayscountry94one Board member and musician Greg Flynn.
