iTunes Chart-Topping Duo And Production Team Announces “FaB Pop Star 2019” Contest
UK pop songwriting and production duo, Neil Fitzsimon and Bee Brogan (FaB), in association with MTS Management Group and WTPL Records, have announced their “FaB Pop Star 2019” Contest. The iTunes chart-topping duo are conducting an exhaustive worldwide search for the next undiscovered artist to record on their next hit release. Platinum producer, Pat Collier (Katrina and the Waves, Carly Rae Jepsen) has signed on to mix the track. It will be released and promoted on FaB’s label, WTPL Records. The song will also receive additional promotion from MTS.
“This is not just another X-Factor type contest,” said Neil Fitzsimon. “We are not looking for a generic sound-alike. We are looking for someone a bit edgy, whether it be a solo singer or a group. This is somebody’s chance to record a brand new original song written and produced by FaB, mixed by Pat Collier and promoted by MTS Management Group and WTPL Records.”
