    Former Dexy’s Midnight Runners star Andy Leek is searching for the musicians of tomorrow with the launch of a new X-Factor style internet competition.
    Leek, who now lives in Lichfield, UK, made his name when he played the keyboard for Dexys’ first number one hit Geno, and went on to develop a career as a singer-songwriter, working with Abba’s Frida Lyngstad and Sir Tom Jones.
    He has launched a Star Maker contest offering up-and-coming bands and individuals the chance to win a contract with his &D Leek Music label, a video shoot and recording studio time, as well as media promotion.
    The competitions launches on March 21 2014 and involves would-be stars performing one of Leek’s designated songs.
    Leek said: “In the past we have had American Idol, Pop Stars, XFactor and the Voice, all TV-based singing competitions that have had great appeal to the wanna-be public and viewers. But the biggest problem that I could see was accessibility.
    “If people couldn’t give up the time to queue, or juggle other commitments, they were effectively excluded.
    “I’m convinced there is a large raft of talent out there and pretty well every modern musician has access to the web – and that’s all you need to enter my competition.”
    The winner gets a contract with the &D Leek Music label, a video shoot and recording studio time for the song they perform and media promotion, worth thousands.
    Entrants will be required to purchase the Star Maker album. For every song on the album, there is an instrumental track which singers can sing along too. They must then perform one of Leek’s songs and post their performance on a YouTube link. All entrant’s YouTube videos must be titled, ‘Andy Leek Star Maker: then their name.‘
    Candidates with good ‘like’ and comment ratings will be singled out for closer scrutiny by &D Leek Music’s judges.
    After the initial submissions, those deemed worthy of a second round place will have their video uploaded to a dedicated, Andy Leek-Star Maker-YouTube channel. On December, 24th, 2014, the winner or winners will be selected from the second round performances, and announced to the world.
    Leek added: “I wish a competition like this had been around when I started out, avoiding the traditional demos and endless gigging to catch the ears of the A&R men”.
    “My recording company is all about helping unsigned musicians and singers,” Leek said. “My intention is to give a voice to anyone who wants to sing, play and perform. And those round 2 contestants who do not win; they will at least, get some good musical advice from me, as well as the extra focus on their talent.”
    The competition is open to any single person or group with a minimum age for entrants of 16.

Track Name: Whats the Problem?
She says that sex is empty
It’s not allowed in the land of plenty
He’s impotent
She’s indifferent
But what’s the problem?
She says he runs for cover
And underneath he loves to suffer
Feels so guilty, pays the penalty
But what’s the problem?
Can’t you play the happy house wife?
You’ve seen it acted out
why not make it your life
What’s the problem?
He says he’s feeling drowsy
And underneath he’s feelin’ lousy
Says, It’s all right
Holds her hand tight
But what’s the problem?
Can’t you play the happy husband
Her love rebates and her
final demand is
what’s the problem?
He says he’s feeling drowsy
And underneath he’s feelin’ lousy
He says, It’s all right
Holds her hand tight
But what’s the problem?
So what is it?

Track Name: When Baby Calls
I don’t need no PC or mobile phone
don’t need a DVD out on a loan
don’t need no Sat Nav to help me get home
I don’t need no television to cause me pain
I don’t need a tattoo to try to look cool
(you know you do)
the former fasion made me look like a fool
most of my friends need to go back to school
(and that means you)
I don’t need no false ambition to drive me insane
I want a sweet life with miss dean
where I can walk with my baby in the rain
(in the rain)
and I know where I’m going to be when she calls my name
(call my name)
when baby calls my name
(call my name)
when baby calls my name
(call my name)
call my name
don’t need a 4 by 4 to pamper my ego
(you know you do)
don’t need vigara to boost my labido
(you know you do)
don’t need to sign up to FaceBook or Bebo
(you know you do)
I don’t want no phoney friends looking for someone to blame
I want a sweet life with miss dean
where I can walk with my baby in the rain
and I know where im going to be when she calls my name
(call my name)
when baby calls my name
(call my name)

Track Name: Here In Our Youth
We lay in the sand as the moon kissed the sky
and fell in love just you and I
We followed the dream until it died
Sweet love
Sweet heart
We found the truth here in our youth
I remember the fallen sea
that crashed about my ears as you held me
Wind on our faces
we stared onto the distant horizon
talked of our future
what can come next ?
Walked on the shifting sands and burned our feet
talked of the rules we discovered were obsolete
Here in our youth
with a burning love we can’t forget the truth
We’re meant to, meant to
live for the moment
here in our youth
Here in our youth
When our days are filled with despair
reaching for each other finding nothing there
Here in our youth
with a burning love we can forget the truth
were meant to meant to live in hope
Here in our youth
we dont want to say no
Here lies the truth
We don’t want to know no no
come on
Here in our youth
Here in our youth
Now every chance that passed us by
is written on my heart and in your angel eyes
Here in our youth
in this world of lies
We can’t forget the truth
Sweet love
knows no compromise
Here in our youth
Here in our youth
I remember the deepest love
I’d ever known before or could dare to dream of
Here in our youth, we are bound in time, to realise the truth
I’ll be yours and you’ll always be mine
Here in our youth

Track Name: Forgive Me
Forgive me lord for the things ive done
Forgive me lord for saying I was the one
Who’d save us all when the time had come
Forgiv me lord
Forgive me
Forgive me
Lord for telling lies
for every word that filled my babies eyes
The tender tears of such sad surprise
Why don’t you please
forgive me?
Forgive me
forgive me lord I lost myself
I lost my youth my talent and my wealth
and blamed it all on someone else
Why don’t you please
forgive me?
Forgive me
Angeline with visions in your eyes

like the planets pull on time
So why’d you mask your innocence with lies?
I had to ask and she solonmly relies
Forgive me
Forgive me
Forgive me lord I know you will
Despite it all I’m a believe in you still
But you make me taste such a bitter pill
Why dont you please
Forgive me?

Track Name: Best in Everyone
Mamma don’t cry
gotta say goodbye
because he’s gone
where the wind meets the sky
My father was a working man
caught in the rain and in the sun
He came home when his work was done
and tried to see the best in everyone
He taught me how to fly my kite
and how to treat my mother right
He died when I was 41 (change to suite your age)
and he tried to see the best in everyone
When I differed to rock and roll
bought me this guitar to save my soul
He told me I must be someone
and to try to see the best in everyone
He fought a war for you and me
and something called democracy
He came home when the war was won
and he tried to see the best in everyone
And when he died he came to me
and gave me this philosophy
and I agreed to take it on
Now i always see the best in everyone

Track Name: Sailors Song
Waking up at dawn
like all the sailors do
Keeping their cool hands warm
thrilling young girls hearts like you
All aboard
A new religion comes
unfavourable conditions
but I don’t believe do you ?
no …
no…
In the dead of night
out on the deep still sea
Working by the lamp light
dreaming of my family
All aboard
A new religion comes
unfavourable conditions
Courageous decisions
but I don’t believe do you ?
no …
no…
Praise the howling wind
Praise the seven seas
Praise the people who keep me
Standing in this steel cool breeze
All aboard
A new religion comes
Unfavourable conditions
Courageous decisions
and strange intuitions
but I don’t believe do you?
no …
no…

Track Name: Love is Your Soul
Close your eyes
close your eyes
When I rise
by your side
Lying in the arms of one who knows me
Cradled like a child or something holy
I can feel her calm washing on me
cos love is my soul
No matter were you go
you’ll be coming home I know
to the one loves you so
cos love is your soul
Walking through my life is like a story
Every open page is death or glory
from your gilded cage you read it for me
with love in your soul
‘Cos there is a faith in you
hat will always be renewed
no matter what you say or do
Love is your soul
Prey for me prey for me
say you will wait for me
say you will stay with me
until I’m old
with love in your soul
Run to me run to me
Say you will come to me
say youll be one with me
as life unfolds
Love in your soul
Walking through the land of milk and honey
Holding out your hand it aint so funny
everything depends on making money
not love in your soul
People just pass me by
cold and preoccupied
as if their hypnotised
doing as their told
with love in their soul
Every one everywhere
their poisoned inside
Nobody really cares
With a hate they can’t hide
No one would even dare
to be so bold
love in their soul
No matter were you go
whichever way the wind may blow
you’ll be coming home I know
Et mon ami , tu est bizarre com moi
Mais ne tanx iette pas
Tu said tout jours
Cque je veux dire
I will cherish dear all that you say to me
and hold you near each time you pray for me
I’ll always be the one
always the one
Look into my eyes for inspiration
beneath the veil of lies lies your salvation
across the bridge of Sighs is where im stationed
with love in my soul
No matter where we go
whichever way the wind may blow
you’ll be coming home I know
As we stare into the void above
are we really so devoid of love?
Do our prayers reach the ones were thinking of?
Vntil life claims you and change you
and leaves your soul undone
No matter where we go
whichever way the wind may blow
you’ll be coming home i know
love in your soul
