Hartlepool’s musical sisters Liv’n’G are doing it for themselves.
The pair – Olivia Crawford, 15, and 22-year-old Georgia Fletcher - first hit the charts late last year when they recorded a fundraising song for Bradley Lowery.
And this Friday, they release their single, Over You.
Olivia explained the two had been making music together for some time, but started to get really serious about it more than a year ago.
“I started singing when I was quite young and Georgia played the piano,” she said.
“We realised we sounded pretty good together and we decided to go with it.”
The pair have won various prizes across the country and have already supported artists as varied as X Factor finalist Emily Middlemas and soul icon Alexander O’Neal.
And this summer they have been asked to support the UK’s most successful urban artist Tinie Tempah when he comes to Hartlepool and will be performing at a number of Metro Radio/TFM events, such as Acklam Hall Summer Festival and Saltwell Park Fireworks.
Over You is the opening release from an EP the girls have recorded.
“We are going to release three singles over the next three weeks and this is the first,” said olivia.
“It is a bit of a mixture of genres. It’s a pop song, but with quite a bluesy feel.”
The sisters are in no doubt that they see their future in the music industry.
“It is what we want to do for the rest of our lives,” said Olivia.
“It makes us happy and we really enjoy doing it together - we have got a really good bond.
“Now it is just about getting it to the level that we want to be at.”
Over You will be available to download or stream from Friday through on-line sites iTunes, Google Play, Amazon and Spotify.
It will be followed by the sisters’ singles Haunting (81 Degrees) and then Lose Control.
