City Showcase : Rising

From 2010, City Showcase introduced a series of monthly Open Mic evenings, mainly hosted at The Regal Room at The Distillers Hammersmith.  Doors were open to everyone and acts performed informal acoustic sessions (with backing tracks, keys, guitars or cajons).   The audience included a panel of industry experts who assessed and mentored performers.  This informal networking opportunity fostered many successful songwriting collaborations.
