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.

    Abram Wilson: opening doors to creative potential

    London, Summer 2012. In the aftermath of losing Abram, Jennie formed the kernel of an idea for this charity, to continue the work that they had started together. With endless passion, commitment and time, we have grown – from a side hustle, to a full time role, to a small team. As we head towards our 10 year milestone in 2022, we’ve been doing a lot of work behind the scenes to get down to the core of what we need to achieve over the next five years.

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
