SOULFUL Harrogate singer-songwriter Samantha Smith is gearing up for this weekend’s regional final of Live and Unsigned, the UK’s biggest original music competition.

To win at Newcastle’s The Journal Tyne Theatre in front of a live crowd, Samantha needs two things primarily - to perform two songs segued together in a total of three-and-a-half minutes (one original, one a cover) plus lots of support from her home-based fans.

If this talented performer, who spent several years in London under the direction of a top agent before returning to Harrogate, wins again, she will make the area final leaving only the national final at the 02 arena in London in her path to success. More info at www.LiveandUnsigned.UK.com. Tickets costing £7.50 are available from info@samantha-smith.co.uk

Also taking part in Live and Unsigned in the bands section this Sunday are Harrogate indie rock outft Wayside.
