About us

Our Story

Naima Adams, musician

For musicians

career development

We inspire, connect and open doors to the music industry so that MINORITISED 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.

Latest ProjectS

In the 2022-23 academic year we ran two Future Sound projects in Manchester with Manchester Co-operative Academies, and a two-term project at Mossbourne Community Academy in London.
