Local band set for EP release

Have your say

THREE young Derbyshire musicians look set for the big time as they near the release of their first iTunes six-track EP.

‘Tilly’ is a three-piece pop group fronted by lead singer Tilly (known locally as Emma Hopkins), alongside her younger brother Danny on drums and Tom Barker on keyboard.

The three were snapped-up by their London-based management team last year and although drummer Danny is still studying for his A levels at Lady Manners School, the band have been working hard for several months towards their first iTunes release.

Emma, who has either written or co-written all of the band’s tracks, said: “We’re so grateful to our management for having faith in us. I have been so privileged to work with some top writers over the past year. The band has been busy on two tours building up a great fan base ready for the release of our six-track EP.”
