The Collective is an Accredited Artist Development Programme for aspiring musicians (vocalists, singers and MC’s from across London) between the ages 13-25 years old.

This unique programme is designed to support aspiring musicians to develop their talents and to produce socially conscious music.

The programme will have training sessions on vocal training, lyric writing, music production, and confidence and performance techniques. Each training sessions will be led by Music Leaders who are specialists in their subject area. There will also be an Arts Award Facilitator present at the sessions to lead the group work, enabling the artists to complete and be awarded with a Bronze Arts Award at the end of the programme.

We are looking to recruit 15 talented artists who will work towards the creation of original music (some as collectives, some as soloists) that are inspired by social issues and topics in London communities. The selected artists will also have the opportunity to work in a recording studio to record their tracks and produce a collective album - to be published online for streaming. After the training sessions, studio time – the artists will take part in rehearsal sessions before we host a live performance, showcasing all the original music created by the young people. Artists who show particular commitment and promise will be invited to discuss being managed by You Press for future performances as freelance artists.
