Basingstoke singer-songwriter reaches regional final of Open Mic UK competition
A YOUNG singer-songwriter from Basingstoke has made it through to the regional final of the Open Mic UK singing competition.
Carl Fryer, a former pupil of Robert May’s School, in Odiham, performed his original track No Signs for judges, a track from his debut EP Freeborn, to secure his passage to the next round.
One of the judges commented: “The track has a well-written structure and you delivered it very confidently.”
The 22-year-old is well known to local audiences, who may have seen him perform in venues such as The Anvil and at Basing-stoke Live.
He is working on his second EP which will be released at the start of next year.
Support Carl at Sub89, in Reading, from 4pm tomorrow. Tickets are £8 and can be brought through contact with Carl.
Find him on Facebook or tweet @CarlFryer. Find out more about the competition at openmicuk.co.uk.
