WEST Yorkshire band The Loose Wires have made it to the next round of talent competition Live and Unsigned.
The band – who have a strong following and links in Huddersfield – performed at the regional finals of the contest in Manchester on March 29.
The five-piece soul and hip hop group’s performance won them a spot at the North West England finals on May 3.
If they win through that head, they will make it to the grand final in London.
The competition has winners in categories of indie, urban, pop/acoustic and metal.
But the overall winner will get a management contract with Future Music and up to £20,000 to release their single.
After the final, the winners will head out on the Live and Unsigned tour, taking in 100 gigs across the UK.
