A unique industry opportunity for fifteen emerging artists
Tomorrow’s Warriors has partnered with Decca (Universal Music) to deliver an innovative Career Mentoring Scheme to 15 emerging Warrior musicians. This is the second year of a partnership that has seen Warriors collaborate with Decca on a year-long programme to deliver vital one-to-one mentoring support to its 18-25 year old musicians from diverse backgrounds, as part of its Emerging Artist Programme.
Decca hosted a special event at its headquarters in Kings Cross on 11th September, to mark the second year of the partnership with Tomorrow’s Warriors, which was attended by TW mentees and Decca staff mentors.
The event began with introductory speeches from Tom Lewis, Co-President Decca Records and Tomorrow’s Warriors Co-Founder Janine Irons OBE, before a Warriors jam session and then the first opportunity for the young musicians to meet their new mentors.
Janine Irons explained the significance of the partnership and the opportunity it presents to young artists, “We are very pleased to continue our exciting partnership with Decca, now in its second year. Decca is one of the most important jazz labels in the world and we are pleased to collaborate with them once again to offer industry-leading mentoring to our Warrior musicians and add significant value to our Emerging Artist Programme.
Tomorrow’s Warriors supports the grassroots talent pipeline into the music industry, and Ezra Collective’s epic Mercury Prize win is a testament to this. So, it’s wonderful to connect our young artists to the expertise in Decca’s staff team and enrich their journey as professional musicians.”
