Lichfield and Burntwood musicians urged to showcase acoustic skills in competition

Bands in Lichfield and Burntwood could win the chance to record live lounge music video.

Sajja Arts is running the competition for local musicians and singers to showcase their acoustic skills.

Entrants will need to choose from five songs to cover:

  • Matrix & Future-bound – Magnetic Eyes
  • Justin Timberlake – Mirrors
  • Rihanna – Diamonds
  • David Guetta – Titanium
  • Bruno Mars – Locked out of heaven

A spokesperson for Sajja Arts added: “The cover must be an acoustic version and there will be no drum kits or electronic instruments allowed.

“To audition you just need to send us in a link to a online rough recording or video which could just be taken from your phone by the deadline of March 31.

“We will invite four of our favourite audition acts for a slot at our studio based at Ingestre Hall, where you will be recorded live while you perform your cover, as well as being filmed to create a video to be used online.”

The shortlisted videos will then be put online for the public to have their say ahead of a final round of judging where the winner will have the chance to have one of their own original songs or a cover to be recorded with a video at Studio 2 Recordings.
