Year 10 prefect, Izzy Warren, is celebrating following the debut broadcast of her original song, ‘All Human’ on BBC Introducing Devon.
The talented fourteen-year-old musician penned the track, entering the ‘Green Light Unplugged’ project, designed to involve local coffee shops, cafes and bars in raising awareness and money for Macmillan Cancer Support, as well as showcasing new musical talent.
Her song was selected as one of ten tracks to be featured on the project’s CD, ‘Greenlight Unplugged – Coffee and Songs for Macmillan’. Izzy travelled to a local recording studio to record her track, attending the album launch in Kingskerswell in early April.
Following on from the track’s success, Izzy uploaded ‘All Human’ to James Santer’s ‘BBC Introducing’ programme on BBC local radio. The programme, aimed at airing the best in unsigned and undiscovered music in the area, liked what they heard, playing it for the first time on 15 April.
The whole experience has been unforgettable for Izzy, who said “It is amazing to think that I have been trying to start a career in music, doing lots of gigs and now I have a song on the radio. I want to record a whole album and get it out in the public domain. The Music department at Newton Abbot College have been fantastic at helping me with my song writing and chord progression. I have learned so much theory that is really helping me learn my trade.”
Team Leader of Music and Performing Arts, Rob Wilkinson, has nothing but praise for the young artist: “Izzy’s talent is plain for everyone to see. Her incredible passion and motivation to put her music out for public consumption is truly inspiring; I have no doubt that her hard work and determination, as well as her musical ability, will see her having a long and fruitful career in the music industry.”
