LUNA RAE GET BIG BREAK AS VODAFONE BIG TOP 40 FUTURE BREAKER

LUNA RAE GET BIG BREAK AS VODAFONE BIG TOP 40 FUTURE BREAKER

Norfolk based Myra Mwang’ombe and Beth Wyn-Jones from Wales are celebrating winning Vodafone’s Future Breakers monthly competition as part of singer-songwriting duo Luna Rae. Winning the competition has given the unsigned 20 year olds a fantastic platform to launch their budding music careers. The Future Breakers initiative, launched this year as part of the Vodafone Big Top 40 partnership with Global, offers Luna Rae the money-can’t-buy chance to record and produce their single ‘Running for You’ with industry professionals, as well as having the live session broadcast online with the Vodafone Big Top 40.

The fresh faced pop double act, who met at university, were keen singers as children and mainly performed on social media before getting their big break with Vodafone Future Breakers.  With inspirations from the likes of Beyoncé, Rhianna and Michael Jackson, the girls hope this will be a stepping stone to something bigger and they are planning an EP release in the summer.

On Luna Rae’s experience with Vodafone Future Breakers, the girls commented; “It was amazing to be given the chance to record our song live. We’re not just making music to make music, it’s generally a reflection of our lives and hopefully somebody can relate to it. It’s thanks to Vodafone and Global that we can share our music and the experience has been incredible.”

Fronted by the Vodafone Big Top 40’s very own Marvin Humes, Vodafone Future Breakers is continuing the search for the very best unsigned talent from across the UK to uncover the next big thing in music or ‘future breaker’.  Listeners, budding artists and band members can enter their tracks/videos through the dedicated hub where they could win a recording studio session with a top industry producer!
