Discovered was such an amazing experience I had when I was younger. It really did open up amazing opportunities for me and I am truly grateful for the support I received for my music and to further my career.

The advice from the mentors is a priceless experience...Winning Discovered 2015 allowed me to release my first single, learn the ropes of recording songs and buy the equipment I needed to progress as a musician.

I love to sing and want to get better at performing, so I joined Discovered to have experience performing in front of people. I also received feedback from the judges, who are all very experienced in the music industry. They were all so kind and encouraging. I learnt a lot!

The feedback and support that I received from the amazing judges really helped me to believe in myself and develop my song writing skills.. I have now gone on to successfully release my own music and have performed in some amazing venues and festivals.
