Over the last five weeks we have met some of the most inspiring & talented new musicians. Collaborating with @weare_spotlight & @apple, we created online workshops, panel discussions & conversations with some of the music industries most trusted voices.
To work on a project like this during lockdown has been such a blessing, especially when you get to learn so much from the next generation.
Tomorrow night, the artists from the programme are performing in front of a panel of industry experts & it’s going to be live on YouTube from 6pm. Would be awesome if you could join us alongside @_kaliclaire @preyecrooks@frances_music @folatooloud & @grantmotion • Watch here: apple.co/made-in-ldn-showcase 🦋 #MusicSurvival #MadeInLDN#TodayAtApple
Throughout lockdown, I wanted to work on projects that paid it forward and meant that when things start to build again, we come out of this stronger and more resilient. Learning really is so key to that. Collaborating with Apple for Made in LDN, throughout the summer holidays I have helped to curate a virtual programme for young people across London linking with Spotlight and the Major of London.
With sessions covering everything from building your artist profile and to crafting lyrics and telling your story through video, we have brought together some of the UK’s most respected voices.

Working in an industry fuelled by passion, often entailing long hours and high stress it’s hard to find a work-life balance and with a rise in burnout and mental health issues in our scene, how can we use this time to press the reset button and go back to a calmer and more balanced way of working.

Our mate Ed Jackson is in the middle of climbing the equivalent of Everest in his house going up & down his stairs during lockdown. If you don’t know about Ed’s story, check it out, it’s majorly inspiring.
He’s nearly raised £30k for charity & to help him reach the summit we have got our DJ pals together & are all going to playing sets for him throughout the day today. The line up is strong & you can catch us on Facebook & IG live.
