Artists we work with

We are fortunate to collaborate with an outstanding team of professional musicians and songwriters who excel at supporting and empowering young people to make music of their own.

  • ‘It’s an amazing group of people to work with and I have loved seeing such brilliant songs written in a joyful, positive space by participants who didn't previously have access to music or know how to write songs”
  • “Incredible people. Incredible atmosphere. A truly special thing”
