In session
Bromsgrove's Robert Brunt was chosen by BBC Introducing presenter Andrew Marston as 'one to watch out for' in his Hot For 2014 countdown.
Robert is a "singer and songwriter of rockabilly plus country & western of 15-years".
During the day, he works as a caretaker at a local school and by night teaches kids rock music!
He's never been to the States - so bought his cowboy hat on the Bromsgrove High Street instead!

BBC Introducing in West Malvern

BBC Introducing in West Malvern
Malvern is the most musical place in the region, if the number of tracks we receive from the town is anything to go by.

It's also the home to several open mic nights including Tuesdays at the Great Malvern Hotel, Wednesdays at The Morgan, Thursdays that used to be at Re-Con and occasional nights at The Unicorn.
The West Malvern Social Club is one such venue hosting regular music, so it was a natural choice to take our monthly recording roadshow to the hills - as we celebrated not only the best in music, but Mothering Sunday too!
Meet some of our local musicians...
