After initially auditioning against thousands of other acts across the UK and impressing the judging panel with their originality, Brett Lee went on to perform live on stage at the Regional Final in Manchester. He dazzled the crowd with their winning performance and He is now set to perform at the Area Final - the last stage before the Live and Unsigned Festival at the 02 in London! He will now be competing in the North West England Final on Sunday 9th May at the Willows, Salford, Manchester.

Live and Unsigned is the biggest original music competition in the UK for unsigned bands and artists.
