Announcing the artist and mentor squad for ‘Home-Grown Heat’, our brand new artist development scheme for emerging musicians in underground music.
Here at MT HQ we are gassed…over the moon…on cloud nine…rather pleased…to have built a team burning with talent for our first year and one that certainly represents the fire coming out of B-Town right now!
Artists on the rise; Splitz P, Charece and Solomon OB will benefit from in-depth, bespoke mentorship and support from industry professionals to create new and original material, perform at high-profile events and design effective marketing strategies. The Bristol based musicians are set to get to work on studio sessions alongside the executive producer, songwriting and rehearsal sessions with the artist mentors plus marketing and media sessions to create portfolios and accompanying digital content. As a part of the National Grants Programme, Help Musicians UK’s funding has made the project possible, having helped thousands of musicians establish themselves in the music business, they invest in outstanding talent and help artists take their career to the next level.
“I feel empowered, liberated and self-aware. I’m confident for – and intrigued by – the future” – Splitz P
“Excited! I have a lot to express musically and feel blessed to have this project behind me” – Charece
“Great opportunity. A chance to grow. Feeling lucky to be in a position to get closer to my potential” – Solomon OB
