Manchester indie band The Covasettes have taken the title of the Local Music Live 2018 favourite, winning the opportunity to perform at the Audio & Radio Industry Awards (ARIAS) later in the year.
This year’s Local Music Live has been the biggest one yet, with 600 acts submitting over a thousand songs during the two months the competition was open. Local Music Live and Howarth Timber’s panel of judges chose The Covasettes as their overall favourite act of the competition, thanks to their catchy sound and lyrics.
As well as a live set at the prestigious ARIAS, The Covasettes have also won the opportunity to record a song at Greater Manchester’s Redwall Studios, and the chance to create a music video with Harris, a creative agency based in Leeds. These fantastic prizes offer The Covasettes a great platform for success, and we can’t wait to see their music career develop.
