Where are you from? I am from a village called Rufford in Lancashire and I have lived on a narrow boat with my family, since I was born.

How long have you been playing? I have been playing the guitar since I was 6 and the double bass since I was 11. The first song I wrote was called, 'On the Ice' while staring onto the frozen canal aged 9.

What is your music style / genre? I have always loved rock (Queen), soft and glam rock ( David Bowie) but I also like pop (James Blunt, Lewis Capaldi and the Beatles) and Indie (The Verve and Oasis). I have dabbled in folk, and was part of the Lancashire youth folk group for quite a few years!

What are your aspirations? I would love my song writing and music to reach a worldwide audience and It would be amazing if I could leave a musical legacy and write a top ten hit!

Who is your musical hero and why? Richard Ashcroft from The Verve, as he blends orchestral instruments with classic rock to create a truly unique sound and style.

One sentence about what it would mean to get through to the final of Battle of the Bands? It would be tremendous to get into the final as it would be a real privilege to play live to the good people of Blackpool and hopefully this will lead to the start of a musical footprint in the sand which won't wash away for years to come!

Where are you from? Blackpool and Fleetwood

What is your music style / genre? A soul / punk explosion

What are your aspirations? A set at Rebellion and world domination shortly after that

Who is your musical hero and why? Les Dawson - the godfather of freestyle jazz because he doesn't let convention rule his performance style

One sentence about what it would mean to get through to the final of Battle of the Bands I'd be exciting for a while, then I'd foprget all about it until the day before, then I'd probably pebble dash my pantaloons!

The live final takes place at Lowther Pavilion on March 29th - here's how to get tickets
