Have a listen to their tracks below and if you like, leave a comment in the box below. The winner will be chosen by an expert panel of judges, and announced at Midday on Friday 11th January 2019! The winner will be awarded a day of recording time at a professional recording studio to produce a studio mastered version of the winning song. Good Luck to all the shortlisted finalists!

Alice Gross was a promising musician and song writer who attended Brentside Academy High and tragically lost her life in September 2014. She has been described as a loving, loyal and quirky girl, with a lively sense of comedy and a compassionate nature. She was a keen musician, who wrote and sang her own songs, played the violin and piano and was learning the guitar. Alice hoped, one day, to have a career in music.
This award is to honour her memory and the love she had in music making and in song writing in particular. It will be an opportunity for other young people to share their music, and gain recognition and support in reaching a musical goal.
