Live and Unsigned has announced that Aziz Ibrahim will be on board to help judge at Live & Unsigned, the UK’s biggest competition for original bands and acts.

Aziz Ibrahim will join the Live and Unsigned judging panel in the city he made his name with an appearance at the Manchester Regional Final. He’ll then be on the panel in Area Finals in both Newcastle and Huddersfield as acts fight it out for a place in the Grand Final at The O2.

The former Stone Rose guitarist is excited to be involved, ‘I can’t wait to see the best in the UK’s unsigned talent. It’ll be a new experience for me and I’m expecting the standard to be very high. Particularly looking forward to judging Manchester where there’s a heritage of great music!’

Aziz has been a busy man having recently been chosen to take part in the BBC’s ‘Introducing Musicans’ Masterclass’, following in the footsteps of last years invited musicians, Tinchy Stryder, Mark Ronson, Gary Barlow and Labrynth. Live and Unsigned finalist Lucy Spraggan was one of a handful of invited up-and-coming musicians.
