Una's Project Lotus Blog!162 weeks ago
Hi guys,

I just wanted to tell you about my exciting week, I've been in the beautiful English countryside at Peter Gabriel's studio 'Real World', writing songs for a brand new project!

It's called 'Project Lotus' and involves the search for an exciting new Pan Asian girl band, a mix of Asian and Western pop which celebrates the cultural differences between the girls!

Auditions are being held in China, Japan, Philippines, Korea and India to find five girls from each country. Once all 25 girls are selected, they will then go to Hong Kong to attend the 'Lotus Academy' where they will work with Grammy winning writer/producer Eliot Kennedy. Eliot will act as vocal coach and choreographer and put the girls through their paces! Unfortunately, the bad news is that one girl from each country has to go home every weekend! Eventually, after 6 weeks one girl from each country will chosen and the exciting new band will be complete! You can look forward to catching them when they make it out to the UK sometime next year.

Gary Barlow and Eliot Kennedy have put together an amazing team of some of the world's best pop writers to write songs for the project, and I was thrilled to be invited along!

Here's a shot of me with some of the writing team - among them are Gary Go, Lucie Silvas, Karen Poole, Jodi Marr and Viktoria Hansen:

I teamed up with Gary Go and Jim on production and we wrote a Pop Rock song. I had a lyric title idea and a hook melody that I had been dying to share. The guys helped me develop and write it and I loved every minute of it. Not only did I write two amazing songs which I'm very excited about, I also had so much fun and learned a lot!

I left today but there will be loads of other writers on their way to the studio over the next few days including Gary Barlow, Alicia Dixon, Jamelia, Shaznay from All Saints, plus many more!

This kind of thing has never been done before, so you can watch out for all the exciting news about 'Project Lotus' at:
