I did a Fenland Jam gig one Friday, and it kept me off the streets. I'm really glad with what I achieved as I made my own song, sent it to a record company and they replied back saying they'd think about taking me on when I was 18. That's like a dream come true, but I could never have done it if it wasn't for Fenland Jam as they've really helped me understand the music business and putting on the shows to the public is the most amazing experience ever.
