The JD Set 2009 winner will receive advice from former Stranglers’ lead singer Hugh Cornwell, studio time in Grouse Lodge Studios, a chance to perform a support slot at a JD Set gig in Belfast, band photography, and the opportunity to fly to Britain to receive advice from music industry professionals. Previous winners of The JD Set include The Coronas in 2005.
