Glastonbury Emerging Talent 2011

Glastonbury 2011 Emerging TalentWhile the world (and his dog) are at SXSW, the shortlist of new talent hoping to play at the Glastonbury Festival this year will be announced in the next few days.

We thought it would be a great idea to feature the very best from the Glastonbury 2011 Emerging Talent longlist. It’ s so refreshing to hear so many exciting prospects for the future, today we feature some of the female singer/songwriters.

Look out for more amazing talents throughout this week on Flush the Fashion. We’ll also have the names of the artists that make it on to the Glastonbury Emerging Talent Shortlist 2011 as soon as it is announced. Stay Tuned.

Brave Little Note Brave Little Note

Interesting Fact?
Music wise.. I have a rule that whatever flows out has to be accepted. Never try to sound like someone else no matter how badly I love other peoples sounds/stuff.

Personally… erm…I’m obsessed with Kung Fu and train several times a week.. ??

Plans for the rest of 2011?
To keep writing and gigging (and training).. I’m also writing music for Film and TV so that’s very lovely too
