Pitch Battle

Earlier this year, I assembled a brand new vocal group featuring 20 fantastic, diverse singers. We are called ‘Over The Water. Roughly half the group is from Liverpool and the half is from ‘over the water’ in Wirral! The singers were all drawn from the ‘Matt Lammin & Friends’ group that get together every year to perform at Christmas, collaborating with string players.

I’m excited to announce that ‘Over The Water’ will soon be appearing on BBC One’s brand new show, Pitch Battle. The show is an exciting and vibrant format and it will feature top vocal groups from around the country. Judged by Gareth Malone and Kelis alongside weekly guest judges including Seal, Joe Jonas and Will Young, the show promises to be an action-packed, refreshing Saturday Night music show. Pitch Battle also features Mel Giedroyc as the presenter and Deke Sharon as music director.
