Disctracted are a young sister duo, Emily and Danielle age 14 and 12 who have been professionally singing, performing and writing original music together for the last 3 years. As well as being singer / songwriters the girls also play their own music giving some amazing live acoustic performances. They have learnt their trade by performing across the country at music festivals, charity events and national singing competitions to promote themselves and their music and have in turn gained a great following and interest in their music. This has presented them with amazing opportunities, performing to audiences of over 15,000 across some epic venues including the prestigious O2 Arena in London on multiple occasions.
2012 was a busy year for the girls where they won a number of prestigious awards from the radio stations (musical achievement award, top talent award, community award), were invited to perform at the Olympic Torch Event in the Scarborough Open Air Theatre in front of 6,500 people as the Torch went through, performed as part of the 10 week summer season at the Bridlington Spa where they brought the roof down to some fantastic audiences. A great end to 2012 saw Disctracted being awarded the Star Group overall grand final winners of the Festival 4 Stars national singing competition. A big part of their year also saw them being invited to work with a number of radio stations across Yorkshire (Imagine, Minster, Pulse, Rock and Stray FM to name a few) which resulted in them being spotted by BBC introducing who in turn played their music live on air and invited the girls into the studio to record a live acoustic set which was play as part of the BBC introducing new year show in January 2013. A great start to the year which promises to be another fun year for the girls with lots of exciting things in store already.
