About us

Our Story

For 11-18s

Future sound

We inspire, connect and open doors to the music industry so that underrepresented young talent has an equal chance to realise their creative potential.

Inspired by the critically acclaimed and award-winning musician Abram Wilson, we provide visibility, access and opportunity within an industry which is often closed to all but the most privileged.

We meet young people exactly where they’re at

Whether that’s at school, in the community or online – and encourage them to find their unique musical identity. 


We offer practical support to emerging musicians and music professionals

by sharing valuable connections and opportunities.

KIND WORDS

“Abram Wilson is an inspiring organisation. It reminds me always that music is vital
not just creatively, but socially – and that music can transform us all for the better.
It’s a privilege to support such positive, innovative people and their musical mentees.”

Ilana, Abram Wilson donor
