My name is Matilda Pratt and I’m an 18-year-old singer-songwriter from the UK. I would love for you to check out my singles released in 2016 – ‘Mistake’, ‘Summer Dreams’, and ‘No Surprises’. I have a passion for music and a love for performing. I’ve been dancing since the age of 4 and continue to do so alongside my singing. I love posting music videos onto my YouTube channel ‘Matilda Pratt Official’ and I enjoy putting my own style on cover versions and uploading original material. I was lucky enough to be invited to perform in front of the Lord Mayor of Birmingham at the age of 10 which was a fantastic opportunity to have at the start of my singing career. I have also competed in competitions including Tamworth Rotary Search for a Star. This was my first talent competition which I entered in my hometown at the young age of 10! Not only did I win my Under 15s age category, but I also won overall too! This gave me the drive to enter some more competitions to broaden my experience as a performer. In 2015, I entered the National Singing Contest TeenStar and made it all the way to the Grand Final at Birmingham NEC. Over 8,000 acts entered the competition so I was incredibly excited about this opportunity. In 2016, I also made it into the Grand Final of the Open Mic UK competition. I am a Westfield London Presents Artist where I regularly perform at the Westfield Shopping Centres in both London and Stratford City. My debut single ‘Mistake’ was released on January 29th, 2016 and it charted in the Top 20 of the iTunes New Releases Singer/Songwriter Charts. On May 27th, my second single ‘Summer Dreams’ was launched which was also well received. This was followed up with my third single ‘No Surprises’ which was my re-imagining of the Radiohead track. I have enjoyed performing at numerous events, festivals, and charity performances last year including Big Family Festival and Napton Music Festival. I look forward to doing this all again in 2021.
