Congratulations to London soul singer Josh Barry, winner of the 2017 Glastonbury Festival Emerging Talent Competition!

In addition to bagging a slot at the festival Josh has also been awarded a £5,000 Talent Development prize from PRS Foundation, beating 7 other shortlisted acts, and thousands of other entrants, to the prize.

The runners-up are Young Yizzy and Flohio, both of whom also receive a £2,500 talent development prize from PRS Foundation.

Recent Emerging Talent Competition finalists include R&B singer Izzy Bizu (a 2016 BRITs Critics’ Choice nominee and winner of the 2016 BBC Music Introducing Award) and singer-songwriter Declan McKenna, who won ETC 2015 and has subsequently signed with Columbia and been longlisted in the BBC’s Sound Of 2017 poll. Last year’s ETC winners were politically-charged Merseyside band She Drew The Gun, who have since released their critically-acclaimed debut album.
