Home-Grown Heat - Multi-Track

Through our innovative artist development scheme, we provide a solid platform upon which new underground music can surface onto street level. We’re proud to support emerging artists and unearth the cutting-edge sounds cultivated in the backyards of Bristol.

Applications are open on a yearly basis where we're on the look-out for three acts on the rise - solo artists, duos or groups - who will benefit from a bespoke package of mentorship. Through the support of industry professionals, acts are equipped with the tools to connect with the world of music business and to progress their DIY careers.

Supported acts receive: studio sessions with an executive producer, composition and rehearsal sessions with an artist mentor, PR sessions with a marketing mentor and showcase performances at professional venues and festivals.

Current Artists:

Splitz P
Starting out experimenting with Grime at local youth clubs, Splitz went on to attract the attention of other local Bristol musicians such as his St Paul's neighbour Buggsy. Its clear to see how his versatile artistry is widely inspired by the likes of Michael Jackson, Skepta and Chronixx as he displays styles from reggae to acoustic.

Charece
Growing up listening to old RnB sounds of Jaheim and Anthony Hamilton, Charece can now be found bumping the more modern sounds of Anderson Paak, Erykah Badu and D’Angelo. Taking influence from weighty topics such as love, war and societal systems she blends songwriting with poetry to tell stories that interest her through music.
