Six months ago, Howarth Timber and Building Supplies launched Local Music Live - a UK-wide search to find the next big thing in live music.

Now, the Local Music Live judges’ favourite Feliicia Eliza has officially released her new single, ‘Head Over Heels’, which is being played across local radio stations in the Local Music Live network.

After being chosen as the ‘next big thing’ by the Local Music Live and Howarth Timber judging panel, Feliicia was invited to record her new track at Redwall Studios in Greater Manchester. Leeds-based creative agency Harris produced the video for the track, which was filmed on location against the dramatic backdrop of Flamborough Head.

Howarth Timber was the major sponsor of the initiative. Local Music Live is the brainchild of John Dash and Dave Stankler and was set up to put new talent on the radio, creating a hub where singer/songwriters and bands could submit their songs for a chance to be played by local radio DJs from across the UK.

Howarth Timber’s marketing and product development manager, Neale Brewster, said: “Feliicia was the stand-out act to emerge from Local Music Live’s search for new talent, and I’m very happy that the initiative has allowed her to record and release her new single. We will certainly be listening out for ‘Head Over Heels’ on the radio in the coming weeks and doing all we can to get the word out to our customers too.”

Feliicia said: “I’m super excited about having released the single and I’m so grateful of the opportunity local music live has given me. It was an amazing experience and I think it’s a great opportunity for independent artists to upload their music and get local radio play!”
