A young musician from West Wickham has stardom in his sights after being named a finalist in The National Lottery’s The Big Music Project Competition.
Eighteen-year-old Pete Conneely’s track beat more than 400 other entries to make it down to the shortlisted three in the search to find a soundtrack for YouTuber DanTDM’s huge online channel - and voting is now open to select the overall winner.
If Mr Conneely is crowned the winner, he will be invited to the Capital London studios to record his track with YouTube superstar DanTDM.
The track will then be featured on DanTDM’s YouTube channel, which has more than ten million subscribers.
Mr Conneely said: “It’s difficult to make it big in the music industry, so I’m incredibly grateful that the Lottery-funded The Big Music Project has given me more exposure than I ever thought possible. It would be a dream come true to have my track feature on DanTDM’s YouTube channel, I’m his biggest fan!”
“Please vote for me to win The Big Music Project Competition, it’s the opportunity of a lifetime.”
Voting closes on May 5 and the winner (with the most Facebook and Instagram likes) will be announced on May 21.
