Preston based girl band P5 are hoping to top the charts next month with the release of their debut single.


The five who met on Preston College’s dance course, originally won auditions to be chosen for P5 from all of the students at the College’s music and performing arts campus at Moor Park.

The girls, who have been hotly tipped to take ‘The Saturdays’ pop crown, have attracted the attention of industry experts, amongst the plethora of admirers, are the gurus behind the multi platinum star Beyonce. They plan  to take P5 to the top  and  become the first college girl group to hit number one.

Their debut single, Crawling Back To You, is produced by Frederick Jernberg, who in the past has helped  pop kings the Backstreet Boys’ to chart success with their number one  hit ‘More than That’ which sold over 30 million copies. Jernburg  has also produced for A-list stars Britney Spears and Rihanna

In addition, the girls have recently signed a management contract with Marshall Arts Ltd, who handle Elton John, Lionel Richie and Paul McCartney amongst others.

Between college and studying,  Romi, Coral, Lauren, Erin and Sophie have been touring the country performing and have even appeared on BBC’s ‘The One Show’
