    This week's session was recorded on the BBC Introducing in Hereford & Worcester stage at this year's Nozstock Festival.

    Calm Like A Riot are Johnny P, Danbo, Pedro and Mick and are all actively involved in the planning of the Worcester Music Festival.

    They pack in one of the best shows on the local music circuit - and were discovered by Andy O'Hare who actually thought that this four-piece were called Carl, Mike & Ryan!

    A singer from Malvern, who hasn't left her house in more than three years due to agoraphobia, has released her first single.

    21-year-old Jemma Pixie Hixon has already become a YouTube star after her online covers attracted more than 12 million hits.

    Now she is hoping to break into the music charts with Never Let Go - which she wrote herself and recorded in her bedroom on her laptop.

    It started off with one proud dad filming his daughter's gigs - but over 200 video tapes later, and one Worcester man's now clocked up more than 56,000 hits on YouTube for the acts he's caught on camera.

    Jim Lowe has been to all but one of Becky Rose's gigs - and that was because she was playing in front of the Queen at The Hive - and he didn't get an invite!

    So far he's recorded more than 100 support acts - and says no band in particular has achieved these stats - it's just down to the sheer number of bands he's filmed.
