Over the Jubilee weekend, the Albert Dock conducted a 'Celebration of Singing' as part of their British celebrations. Choirs, musicians and groups entered via Juice FM and heats were held in the courtyard over a 3 day period.
Judges were impressed by the high calibre of talent on offer and the overall winner was announced as Ted Clark.
Ted has won himself a slot on the Albert Dock Mathew Street Festival floating stage this August bank holiday. Congratulations Ted!
Born and raised in Liverpool, Ted Clark started performing rock music as a teenager learning diversity and variance in guitar technique. Whilst studying for his Art Diploma, Ted played in many bands throughout his teens and discovered a love of composing his own music. Ted finished his education and moved south where he formed Hindsight - a successful band who gained their own following thanks to supporting and sharing the stage with rock heavy weights including Biffy Clyro, Lost Prophets and Hundred Reasons. After the release of their debut album 'Contemplating Concept of Forever' Hindsight changed the band name to My Life in the Making and were signed to Zebra 3 Records. The band toured the UK and America and even performed to over 3 million listeners and 40,000 concert goers who were tuned in to the W.E.B.N Cincinatti annual festival- Mid Point. My Life in the Making featured in magazines such as Metal Hammer, Rock Sound, Kerrang, Total Guitar and other major publications.
Ted also worked on other projects including Moesaboa (Basick Records) and was asked to perform an acoustic solo set for charity, something he had never done before. Without the comfort of a band to hide behind, Ted's solo set was something he described as "New, exciting but very scary!". Ted was credited with creating a solo sound that was very different, with the addition of a violinist, his performances touched on various genres and utilised emotions and personal experiences he had never explored nor shared with an audience before. This raw, true sound allowed his audience to delve deep into his personality and experience something intensely private but captivating. Ted was asked to support Mark Morris from The Bluetones and was featured in magazines, radio stations, theatres and also supported Matt and Sueleen from the BBC's recent series of 'The Voice' at the Marlow Theatre in Canterbury.
Speaking about his recent accomplishments in his home City, Ted said "I am deeply thrilled and touched to have been chosen as the winner of the Celebration of Singing and to Play the Albert Dock Stage at the Mathew Street Festival. It is such an honour to be asociated with the festival, the Albert Dock and not to mention Sony Award winning Juice FM. I shall endevour to give the performance of my life at the show and hope I can entertain you all with my blend of Alternative/Folk."
