Two teens from Romford are hitting the streets with their acoustic double act as part of the Mayor of London’s Big Busk competition.

Kieron Liley, 17, and Abbi Jordan-Bland, 16, met at Emerson Park Academy and have performed together under the name Denmark Street since they joined forces in a school concert last year.

Kieron said: “I approached Abbi knowing that she had a great voice and would be perfect to duet with.”

The pair are down to the last 200 in the Big Busk competition, which received more than 2,000 applicants, and have performed at locations including Westfield Shopping Centre in Shepherd’s Bush.

Their gig was recorded and the public can vote online for them to reach the Grand Final in September.

On top of song covers for their YouTube channel, the pair have also started writing music together and plan to releasing an EP next year.
