Singer Josie to take to London stage with new single
A 19-year-old Bury St Edmunds singer will take to a London stage next month, weeks after recording her first official single.
Josephine Bryan, whose family runs the Dog and Partridge, in Crown Street, has been invited back to perform at the O2 Academy in Islington, where she competed in the Soundwaves Music Competition in March.
“The competition went really well. Even though I didn’t win, it was a great place to meet people and a great stepping stone,” she said.
The show, on August 25, will see Josephine treat the audience to a half-hour set, which will include her new single, Rollercoaster in the Rain, which she is due to record with her friend and guitarist, Harry Frederick-Mires, next week.
“I recorded it once before but that was at a different time in my life so it didn’t have the same meaning or feeling as it does now,” she said.
This is just one of many plans Josephine has for the coming year to help achieve her goal of becoming a professional singer.
“I want to perform as much as I can, record more music and play at a festival,” she said.
“The ultimate dream is to follow in the footsteps of the people I look up to.”
