Our 2017 Favourite: Feliicia Eliza

Singer/songwriter Feliicia has both Danish and English blood running through her veins, a fact which comes through beautifully in the country infused pop she plays. With over 200 entries to the Local Music Live initiative, selecting a favourite was no easy task.

“It’s great that Local Music Live and Howarth Timber have put this competition together and made it possible for me to record my new track and my music video. Winning this competition will give me a big push forward with my music” — Feliicia Eliza
