Advice from Singing Competition Winner – Richard Jones

Would you advise unsigned artists to enter the Open Mic UK singing competition?

I would definitely recommend the show to an unsigned artist! Even if you are not particularly experienced because it gives you valuable experience singing infront of large crowds and a panel of people who could potentially push your career further.

Did you enjoy your Open Mic UK experience?

Yes, I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience….it was all very exciting!

Singing Competition Winner – Richard Jones

What in your opinion is the best part of the Open Mic UK singing competition?

I think the best part is the experience of playing on stage in front of large crowds.

Did you find the industry judges’ feedback helpful?

Yes, the feedback was quite helpful. As a songwriter, it helped because I was given feedback on the songs as well as the performances.

How did it feel to be crowned Open Mic UK Winner?

I was over the moon to be announced winner! Especially considering I’d only been writing music for around 12 months!

What would be your advice for success at Open Mic UK? 

I think to be successful you need to focus on your originality. Just be creative! Personally, I had a large collection of original songs before I entered the competition which I really feel helped prove my originality and artistry and was probably a bit factor in my success in this competition!

What have you been up to since winning the singing competition?

Since winning the competition I have been working hard preparing my songs ready for when my EP is recorded later in the year! I’m also really quite busy with gigs across the country and I have some cool support gigs coming up! Winning the competition has given me some great exposure and I’m excited for what the future has to hold!
