Good afternoon and welcome to our very first Spotlight Saturday.
We thought it would be nice to share some of the audio and visual performance related gems that we like, from home and away, in the hope that you might like them too. Some of them will be old, some will be new, but all of them will be brilliant!
So, watch, listen, view and share but more importantly, give us your comments and feedback or alternatively, contact the artists directly – we’re sure they’ll be chuffed to hear from you.
This week, UK Spoken Word Artist and Rapper, Lyric L, alongside Kevin Mark Trail (formally of The Streets), had their collaborative track, Away, featured on Channel 4‘s 4Play.
