TOMORROW sees singer-songwriters battle it out for the crown in the final of the All About the Song competition.

Heat winners Fugitive Orchestra, the stage name of James Tattington, Sarah Corcoran, performing as Bluebird, Gareth Howells and Matt Little will be joined by wildcard entry Ash Watson.

Heats have been held over the past few weeks at The Cellars at Eastney, with the final taking place at The Wedgewood Rooms in Albert Road, Southsea.

All About The Song is open to all unsigned singer-songwriters and acoustic performers of original material within the PO postcode area.

The annual contest is part of the Portsmouth Festivities and is backed by The News and Express FM.

The overall winner will be offered studio time with a professional engineer/producer to record their song at Air Studios in London as well as the chance to get advice from studio owner Paul Woolf, who will judge the final.

Paul is the CEO and co-owner of Air Studios and Strongroom Studio.

Doors open at 7.30pm and the show starts 8pm. Tickets cost £5. Go to
