A SINGER-SONGWRITER could be hitting the charts after winning a meeting with a music consultant.
Shane Morrall, 23, made it to the final of Open Mic UK, a singing competition which aims to find the best unsigned singer-songwriters in the country.
He performed his own song Say My Name to the crowd at the O2 Arena in London last month after wowing the judges in the regional heats held at Dewsbury Hall.
Although Shane didn’t win the competition, he was invited to a meeting with music consultant Chris Grayston in London. Chris is one of the directors of the competition and has worked with artists such as Tinchy Stryder, The Hoosiers, and Nathan Sykes before he joined the boy band The Wanted.
“The whole competition was amazing,” said Shane, of Sunnybank Drive, Cudworth. “It was the biggest crowd I had to played to in my life and it really reunited my love for gigging.
“Having the chance to meet with Chris was the reason I entered the competition so I am ecstatic that I won the opportunity to hopefully get my music out there.”
If the meeting is successful, Shane could be signed to a record label and have the chance to produce an album.
“I am hoping this will be a big opportunity,” said Shane. “Getting my name out there would be fantastic. I am very nervous to meet with Chris but I’m excited to see where it leads.”
