Isolde tells the JSS Magazine what it was like on set for her new music video!
Hi guys, this is Isolde here! I just wanted to update you about what’s going on in my new music video. The whole video was so fantastic to create and I couldn’t have created it all without the amazing makeup artist, Gem and Tonic Jewellery, Jessica Hope, Billy and Louie, the film crew, the photographers and Amanda Neale my manager.
Junior Star Singer Songwriter is a great platform for helping our young artists to launch their musical careers and find ways to get their music out into the public domain. One opportunity that came up recently was the chance for our 2017 best group winners, Billy & Louie, to appear live on a radio show on BBC Wiltshire.
Junior Star Singer’s very own Isolde caught up with Temi Atiba, a contestant in this year’s JSS competition, to see how she’s feeling as we head ever closer to announcing this year’s finalists! Above is a picture of Temi, alongside JSS artists and Jss Extra Presenters Georgia Lois and Chloe Dunn, when she appeared on the JSS Extra show at Brooklands Radio.

Following on from a charity event to raise money for this year’s Swindon and Wiltshire Pride festival that we sang at last year, we were delighted to be welcomed back for the festival, this time on the main stage in front of thousands of people!
Multi-talented Michael Carberry who played cricket for England for over 10 years, has started a new career swapping his wooden bat for a wooden pencil… and is just as good! Amanda Neale had the opportunity to catch up with the star as they talk about DJ-ing, music and what inspired Michael to try his hand on the decks (listen below). They also caught up on all things cricket and the differences between the sport and arts worlds and discussed how Michael discovered his incredible talent for sketching.
