The Finalists for Rock the House 2013 have been announced. On 26th June, five finalists will compete for the coveted title and Nottingham’s own Lacey, nominated by Lilian Greenwood MP, have been chosen as one of the final five.
Over 150 MPs put forward a local unsigned band from their constituency. Each of the finalists will play a live set in front of a panel of heavy weight music industry professionals who will decide who is the overall winner.
The winner will then be invited to perform on the House of Commons Terrace in front of MPs, celebrities, press and industry experts.
Lilian Greenwood said, “I’m chuffed to bits that Lacey have made it through to the final. ‘Let it Go’ was an instant hit with staff in my office so I knew that they had a great chance of bringing the title home to Nottingham. This is another chance to showcase our city’s growing music scene which has been in the spotlight since Jake Bugg topped the music charts. I really hope they win!”
Lacey, formed in November 2010, have released two EPs, sold out the Bodega and are currently preparing to release a new single which will be available on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify.
Rock the House celebrates the very best of up-and-coming unsigned British artists and the live music venues that support them. The aim of the competition is to raise the political profile of the importance of intellectual property rights, and live music, among parliamentarians.
