Ethos

Underground is influential. From Punk to Grime, the sound of our island’s streets has long defined our inner-city culture.

Musical movements on the edges of society don’t always get much support, investment or widespread recognition, despite their undeniable significance. That’s where we come in.

Our projects – powered by Bristol Music Trust and Urban Development – disrupt the norm by adopting a fresh approach to learning for those operating in the city’s underground scene.

We believe in providing professional development opportunities which are both culturally relevant and representative of the multiple pathways into the industry.

Through an innovative programme that connects aspiring creatives with current industry professionals, we lead an empowered community and support the future pioneers of contemporary music in Bristol.

We demystify the music business so that anyone hoping to build a career within music can access the tools and knowledge they need to push for commercial success and keep our culture alive.
