Over the summer, some of London’s most promising young artists worked alongside music industry experts and the creative arts youth space Spotlight to craft their music skills. The five-week Music Survival series wrapped up on Friday with a Final Showcase where each artist had a chance to share their work in front of a panel of pros.
Music Survival was a collaboration with Today at Apple and Made in LDN, the popular creative program designed to inspire London youth. Together with Spotlight, workshops, panel discussions, and conversations were held online with some of the UK music industry’s most respected artists. The programs focused on music, podcasts, production design, the spoken word, and more. Music Survival was curated by DJ Carly Wilford.
During August 28th’s Final Showcase broadcast live on YouTube, each young artist who applied and was accepted into the program was featured in a two-minute performance of an original piece of music. The event was moderated by a panel of experts, musicians, and managers: Carly Wilford, Frances, Kali Claire, Preye Crooks, Grant Motion, and and Fola.
