Greg going for glory with District Three EP
6:00pm Tuesday 27th August 2013 in Harwich and Manningtree News
A LOCAL X Factor star has released his debut EP alongside band mates less than a year after appearing on the show.
Greg West of District 3, who went to school in Dovercourt and Manningtree has been working on songs for months with Michael Parson and Dan Ferrari-Lane.
The seven-track self-titled offering went on sale on Sunday and Greg, 19, thinks it is the best thing the band have done so far.
“Writing our own songs gives you such a good feeling,” he said.
“We tested all the tracks we had written on a tour to see what was popular so the fans had a really big input into what went onto the EP.
“All three of us have been writing. My personal favourite track is probably “Dead to Me” because it is stripped back, concentrates on vocals and is great to perform.”
