Name: Alex Blackburn

Age: 20

Occupation: Applied Biology student at Northumbria University

Artist of Choice: Blaenavon

Ally B

“I chose Blaenavon because of the intensity of the instruments being played. Not only that but the lead singer’s vocals (Ben Gregory) are raw and powerful in places while soothing in others; passionate throughout the course.

“I think that their music will become more known this year and if they release an album then it definitely will.

“If you haven’t heard them already you should listen to Prague, it’s one of my favourite songs.”
