An aspiring young singer from Heanor is looking to hit the big time as he prepares to battle it out for a £100,000 recording contract .
Nathan Hart, 25, is looking to capitalise on the opportunity of a lifetime as he attempts to take on 100 other young artists to see his career as a singer reach new heights.
He was offered the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity after he was approached by the organisers of UK-wide competition Brand new Artist which looks to discover the UK’s next top talent.
The singer songwriter could not turn down the opportunity and has thrown his name into the hat.
Nathan told the Ripley & Heanor News: “It really is a fantastic opportunity for any young artist and I hope I can go far in this competition.
“Whoever wins the recording contract gets a CD recorded for free in a top recording studio, a promotional music video that will be aired on MTV and will get the opportunity to headline a televised festival next year.
“This really is great opportunity to gain exposure for Heanor and the deserving local talent that we have here in Derbyshire.”
In what has been a successful month for Nathan has also just released his debut E.P ‘Playing With My Heart’.

Brand New Artist have split the competition into two stages from Wednesday October 15 – Saturday November 15 and then November 15 – Monday December 15.
