A Ditcham Park School student who won a competition to provide lead vocals for a couple of Shine Radio’s new jingles has heard the end result.
Towards the end of last year, Petersfield’s Shine Radio offered a unique opportunity for one talented young vocalist, who is a student at a local secondary school, to become part of the radio station’s new musical identity.
15 year-old Daisy Browning was the successful applicant and received professional tips on session singing from world-class vocal coach Kim Chandler ahead of the recording session at Churcher’s College music studio just before Christmas directed by one of the UK’s leading specialist jingles producers, Chris Stevens.
Shine Radio’s Harrison RB said: “Petersfield’s schools are bursting with musical talent and the town’s own local radio station is the natural platform for getting it heard.
“We were very excited to be taking our championing of local talent to a new level and received lots of brilliant entries.
“Daisy’s voice is the perfect fit for the bright feel of Shine Radio and we’re delighted to have her voice as an essential part of our new sound.”
A delighted Daisy said: “I thought the competition would give me new experiences in music. I love music, I love jazz.”
Ignite Jingles owner Chris Stevens said: “We really enjoyed working with Shine Radio on this project, and we’re delighted with how the jingles turned out.
“Daisy sounds great on the mixes and we wish her all the best with her future singing career.”
On Thursday 26 January, Daisy and Ditcham Park’s Head of Music Ed Williamson heard her recordings on Shine Radio for the very first time.
