Nexxt Step will encourage London’s music scene to recognise and support the development of women in music by mentoring and profiling artists aged 18-24 from London who are ready to take their existing career to the next step. After a month of mentored workshops, writing camps and studio sessions this October, participants will write, record and perform an EP supporting the theme #BehindEveryGreatCity which they will release with support from Saint Music and Parlophone Records.

This year the Mayor of London launched a year-long women’s equality campaign #BehindEveryGreatCity to mark the centenary of the first women in the UK winning the right to vote, and to drive forward gender equality across the city.

 

 

Nexxt Step: Women In Music is part of the #BehindEveryGreatCity campaign and aims to support talented young women in the capital to progress their careers in the music industry.

Applications are now open (below) for those who have already actively started making music, such as performing at open mics or shows, and releasing freestyles digitally or on social media. Those accepted onto the programme will participate in a four-week studio based mentoring camp, with the aim of completing an EP.

In November, after completing the project, the young artists will headline XOYO for two nights [7th and 14th November], giving them the chance to showcase their talents. They will then perform at City Hall in a final show on 23rd November, launching the release of the new EP.

 

 

The project itself is curated and led by media mogul Sian Anderson who in 2017 mentored 40 young people from across the UK during her youth mentoring programme FLOOR SIXX Music Academy.
