Undis­cov­ered acous­tic singer-song­writ­ers are be­ing of­fered the chance to play at the pres­ti­gious Shep­herd’s Bush Em­pire with Fen­der’s search for un­signed tal­ent.

The Fen­der Un­plugged Artist Of The Year com­pe­ti­tion will be hosted and com­pered by Ra­dio 1 DJ Huw Stephens and is now ac­cept­ing entries from solo singer/ song­writ­ing gui­tarists aged 18 plus, via www.Fen­der.com. “We’re re­ally ex­cited to launch the Fen­der Un­plugged Artist Of The Year com­pe­ti­tion,” says Fen­der EMEA’s Head Of Artist Re­la­tions Neil Whitcher, who will be one of the judg­ing panel. “Fen­der has al­ways been a sup­porter of new mu­sic, and we’re look­ing for­ward to giv­ing a plat­form to UK singer-song­writer tal­ent.”

The win­ner who makes it through the semi and fi­nal stages will get the chance to sup­port Lucy Rose at the Shep­herd’s Bush Em­pire on 3 Novem­ber this year.
