FRED PERRY X NICHOLAS DALEY MUSIC GRANT
CALLING ALL UNSIGNED ARTISTS IN THE UK - SUBMIT YOUR WORK AND YOU COULD WIN A TWO DAY MASTERCLASS WITH METROPOLIS STUDIOS
The British music industry is in a difficult place right now. The ongoing pandemic has meant that aspiring artists are having to find alternative routes to make waves in the music scene. The Fred Perry x Nicholas Daley music grant will give one lucky artist or band the support they need to hone their craft and get their music out into the world.
“Music is the unifying force between our brands and plays a key role in each collaboration collection. That is why during a time when the music industry is under great threat we decided to pull together and offer the music grant to support the next generation of musicians here in the UK.
I have pulled together a diverse and experienced judging panel who will bring their expertise within the industry to select our grant winner." Nicholas Daley
Nicholas Daley has selected a panel of five industry experts to judge the entries. This includes musicians Nilufer Yanya and Nubya Garcia, DJ’s, Broadcasters and Record Label Founders Bradley Zero and Gilles Peterson, and music writer Tara Joshi.
Initiatives like this provide a life line for artists looking to break out of their bubble and get their voices heard on a larger platform. A&R, to me, is about elevating unheard voices and maximising their reach - and that’s exactly what I believe we can achieve with this project.” Bradley Zero
