Some ten 16 to 25 year olds with a passion for making music are set to be brought together in a fresh band and given a showcase.

It's part of a project called Build a Band, a collaboration between O2 Think Big and the DJ Huw Stephens, according to O2.

Youngsters can present an audition clip in using o2thinkbig.co.uk, and both singers and music instrument players can try out.

The ten winners are going to be putting together a track in collaboration with Stephens, then tour to the likes of London and Liverpool in the autumn.

"I want to hear from every kind of musician and vocalist out there. It doesn't matter if you play the drums or harp, are a DJ or a beatboxer. At this stage, we're open to anyone and it is so easy to apply, I want to hear from you all," said Stephens, who presents on the Radio 1 station.

The closing date for entries is September 13th.ADNFCR-2133-ID-801429660-ADNFCR Posted on 15 Aug 2012 16:39 to category : Music News
