Lewes musician in line for international glory

A LEWES musician has made it through to the final round in an international music awards competetition.

Composer and artist Jeremy Harnell, 25, is on target for glory in the People’s Music Awards.

He has had a number of successes with his music in the past, having been a finalist in a number of high profile competitions.

These included the 2007 Tate Tracks Awards, a competition held by Tate Modern where contestants produced songs to coincide with a piece of art held in the gallery.

The same year he released his deput EP “Lost” under renowned US electronic label Moodgadget Records.

Last year Jeremy won the Myspace Profile Awards and achieved second place in Hitatchi’s Driven Creativity Awards.

He’s currently sponsored by high-end British fashion label Fly53.

Jeremy has now made it through to Round Three in the People’s Music Awards, which has involved celebrity judges such as Howard Marks (subject of the 2010 film Mr Nice) and musician Terry Burrows.

He needs the help of more voters in order to secure the top spot, and to secure support he’s offering his new release “Visual EP”, a collection of his soundtrack works, for free.

You can download both the song “Lost” and the new EP at: http://jcharnell.bandcamp.com/
