Open Mic UK 2009 is the exciting new national talent competition which searches for the UK’s best singers, singer/songwriters, rappers and vocalists of all genres who perform either covers or original material.

Over 10,000 hopefuls entered nationwide and hundreds of auditionees queued patiently on the day for their turn to impress the judges.

Along with the other most impressive acts, Martha Joy made it through to the Regional Finals and will now be performing at the live stages of Open Mic UK 2009 to compete for a place in the National Final and the chance to grab a break through recording contract.

The Regional Final show is taking place at 8pm on Saturday 10th October, 2009 at Hove Town Hall, near Brighton station. Martha Joy needs your vote! Find information on tickets for the show below.

Described as having “honey tones and sweet riffs”, Martha Joy is a blues/rock singer/songwriter from New Cross in London. Martha has been working hard to showcase her music around UK venues this year and is delighted with this latest recognition.

Chris Grayston head of A&R at Future Music comments, “We are searching for an original act that has the live ability to impress an audience of over two thousand alongside a number of industry judges and A&R associates, as well as the potential to become professional recording artists.”

The prize for the overall winning act of Open Mic UK 2009 will be to record their own album in professional studios with an industry vocal specialist, with the potential of large investment for a single release as well as the aim to nationally chart. The winners will additionally have the opportunity to tour across the UK.

The winners will be thrust into the media spotlight through television, radio and the press and all winners will be invited on the Open Mic UK Tour, which boasts 100 gigs across the country.
