At BBC Music Introducing in Hereford & Worcester, we support the very best new music from across the region. Since 2005 we’ve broadcast more than a thousand sessions, helping to showcase some of our area’s most talented musicians. We’ve handpicked some of our favourite acts to join us on stage at Hay. These artists didn’t even know they were being considered – and we hope this inspires people to keep sending in their music, because we really do listen to everything. bbc.co.uk/introhw
Carmen Lees-Green is a graduate of the Hereford College of Arts and has been songwriting since her teens. Inspired by artists such as Amy Winehouse and Jorja Smith, she brings an eclectic sound to the table that is not to be missed!
Evesham's Jeremy Johnson pursued an international career as a geoscientist in his twenties, working, living and travelling across four continents. Jeremy's passion for music endured, but it wasn't until his late 20s that his development as a songwriter began to flourish. Chronicling his varied and individual experiences, Jeremy completed his first album of work in the months leading up to his 30th birthday. His latest album was released in February this year.
These sessions will be broadcast throughout June on BBC Hereford & Worcester on Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 6pm.
