The Razz: Hunt for new Scots talent is in the mix.

Byline: WITH BEVERLEY LYONS AND CATH BENNETT

THE Mixing Rooms, Scotland's hottest new recording complex, was opened last night by owners John McLaughlin and Stuart McCredie.

The state-of-the-art studio and bar will not only host established acts, but also develop new talent.

And John revealed that his quest to unearth Scotland's brightest undiscovered acts was already paying off. "We've been sent sackloads of demos and I thought I'd hear several hundred before something really caught my attention," he said. "But the third CD blew me away. It was from a Dundee guy called David Gaurly and he's in with a shout."

John was so impressed that he invited the 19-year-old to sing at last night's launch John promises a host of big names at the Mixing Rooms, starting ex-Blue star Antony Costa tonight.

John, who has written hits for Westlife, has asked the Razz to help him in his search for Scotland's next big stars.

We've organised a competition with two prizes, one for songwriters and one for performers. The winning songwriter will win studio time with John's team of producers and writers, who will package the result and distribute it to major labels.

The best performer will record a track in The Mixing Rooms and will appear at a showcase for music bigwigs.

Send a demo, marked Razz Writer or Razz Performer to Razz Competition, The Mixing Rooms, 222 West Regent Street, Glasgow G2 4DQ
