A group of students from Cramlington Learning Village took to the streets of Newcastle to promote a brand new single by busking.

Thirty six students origibally took part in a project aimed at creating a new teen ‘Pop’ group in only two weeks and as part of the process students from all backgrounds had to audition for their roles and the auditions led to the birth of CLV Music.

Year 7 and 8 students from Cramlington Learning Village are releasing their first single and in preparation went to Northumberland Street in Newcastle, busking outside of Marks & Spencers.  GM015038

Their hard work has resulted in the group of students writing, creating and performing three original singles which will be available to purchase on iTunes on from tomorrow, Saturday June 29th.

Their title track “Nothing to Say” is performed by Jessica Woodward, Emily Farrington and Morgan Butler and was written by Year 7 student Lewis Green.

In addition to this students have shot Music Videos in locations around the North East including Tynemouth, Newcastle, Gateshead and Cramlington which will all be available to view on their You Tube and they have also ran a very successful marketing campaign on Facebook and Twitter and you can join their already hundreds of followers on Twitter by following the group @CLVPop.

They also sttod on Northumberland Street in the centre of Newcastle so shoppers could hear their music.

Michael Bacon, a teacher at Cramlington Learning Village said: “The students have blown everyone away by their talent, dedication and creativity throughout this project.

“To produce three outstanding songs in such a short period of time is nothing short of remarkable.

“They were recently visited by Head Teachers and professionals from all across the UK and beyond who were astounded by their achievements.

“Well done to all of the students involved and good luck for the future. I know that many of you have already asked me to keep this band running for the foreseeable future, so watch this space.”

Students will be performing their original tracks at the Cramlington Learning Village Festival on Saturday 29th June in Cramlington. All guests and parents are welcome along to this exhibition of learning and success.
