Hertfordshire’s Lauren Rich is offering fans the chance to appear in her next music video

Hertfordshire acoustic singer and songwriter Lauren French is offering fans and members of the public the chance to participate in her next music video.  

The success of Rich’s Crowd-Funding campaign allowed the artist to record her recent EP and Rich is turning to her fans again to help with not only the next step in her musical career but to give back to a charity that is dear to Rich. The video will be for single ‘The Drink Talking’ and will help raise money for charity, Crohn’s and Colitis UK.

After suffering some ill health earlier this year and being diagnosed with Crohn’s disease Rich is keen to give back to a charity that has become a big part of her life.

Having performed at prestigious London venues such as Proud in Camden and The Water Rats in Kings Cross, not to mention playing live during radio interviews with BBC London and BBC Three Counties, Rich is hopeful that her growing fan base will be keen to get involved and live their 15 minutes of fame!

The date and venue for the filming of the video is yet to be confirmed but Rich has revealed that it will be shot in a London based pub.

You can sign up to be involved in the video and donate to the campaign here:

King of Vintage, Si Cranstoun gets playlisted on BBC Radio 2 and Magic...What's next for the Rock n Roll Star?

 

After twenty years of busking on the pavements of the UK and making a name for himself on the ‘Vintage’ scene with his Jackie Wilson-esque original song writing style, Si Cranstoun is finally breaking into the wider public eye with new single ‘Caught In The Moonlight’.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s2JDXxzQr3Y

He’s now delighted to see his efforts come to fruition having signed a deal with Warners and gained support from Radio 2 and in particular Terry Wogan.

Now on the playlist of the UK’s biggest radio station, Si Cranstoun is keener than ever to share his unique musical sensibility. His fresh take on old school soul has seen him compared not only with the aforementioned Jackie Wilson but also the excellent Imelda May. It’s a style that has grown from years of honing and busking and improving his sound, writing a back catalogue of top quality material that has stood the test of time, but also led to saw him meet his wife as she passed on the pavement!

Si has a number of shows coming up so make sure you catch one of hisperformances!
