Wired4Music Industry Insights at the Century Club

On Wednesday 10 October, Sound Connections hosted an event in partnership with the Century Club celebrating the work of Wired4Music, our flagship youth network programme for Londoners age 16-25. The evening featured exclusive performances from Estée Blu and Sans Soucis, both Wired4Music members who have been supported by Sound Connections to further develop and support their music careers. There was also a panel discussion where Adem Holness, Wired4Music Producer, interviewed Estee and Wired4Music member Chris Lloyd who is now working at BBC Radio 1. It was fascinating to hear about their musical journeys and how Wired4Music has supported them and given them opportunities to grow and develop. There was also the opportunity for the audience to ask questions and hear about the challenges and the top tips from two emerging musicians.

Guests also had the opportunity to bid via a silent auction on a number of items kindly donated by some of our supporters. It was wonderful that these included a signed vinyl album from Nick Cave, a Cambridge Audio Bluetooth speaker, personal training sessions from Twenty Two Personal Training and two tickets donated by City of London Sinfonia for their concert at Southwark Cathedral in November. We are extremely grateful for their generosity, for the donations leading up to the event as well as on the evening itself.

The evening was a great success. Working with Century, who generously donated the space and refreshments, was very special indeed and we are planning to work in partnership with them on a similar event next year. It is important to be able not only to celebrate the work that we do with young people but also to be able to provide such high profile platforms for them to showcase their achievements.

If you are interested in supporting our wider work with young people, or would like to host a similar event in the future, then please do email our Director, Philip Flood, at philip@sound-connections.org.uk
