Howarth Timber’s marketing and product development manager, Neale Brewster, said: “The quality of the entries received made choosing our favourite act a tricky process, but Feliicia caught our attention from the very beginning, and on behalf of Howarth Timber I’d like to congratulate Feliicia and wish her all the best for what I’m sure will be a stellar music career!”
Chosing the favourite wasn't an easy decision, as the quality of the artists was so high, it took lots of deliberation.That’s why we also decided to highlight some of the other talented singers and bands that caught our eye as part of Local Music Live 2017. Each of these artists also received a prize courtesy of our sponsors Howarth Timber.
Alex is a Liverpool-based singer, guitarist and loop-maker whose energetic performance and ability to weave intricate loops made him stand out from the crowd. Click HERE for his page on Local Music Live.
Sophie started out singing covers and performing at open mic nights in her native Mansfield, but having heard her original material we think she’s destined for big things! Click HERE for her page on Local Music Live.
For the Girl is a five-piece indie pop rock band from Nottingham made up of lead singer Sam Plenty, guitarists Josh King and Isaac Hallas, bassist James Wells, and drummer Foxy. With their blend of different styles For the Girl has a sound that is unique and we’re sure you’ll see them popping up on festival bills around the UK very soon.

We’re sure we’re not the only ones who spotted Niamh, a talented singer/songwriter from Skipton. Her beautiful piano-backed ballads are the perfect fit for her wonderful vocal style, and we’re excited to see what’s next for this gifted teenager. Click HERE for her page on Local Music Live.
Finally, Frankie may be one of the youngest artists to submit her music to Local Music Live, but it was her clever lyrics and catchy melodies that made her stand out. Frankie is a 14-year old singer and multi-instrumentalist from Yorkshire, and we’ll definitely be keeping an eye and ear out for her in the future. Click HERE for her page on Local Music Live.
