The Oh Yeah Music Centre in Belfast is set to launch the second year of its talent development programme – ‘Scratch My Progress’.
The scheme will again offer four musical acts the chance to hothouse their talent, learning about the business of music plus the trades of performing and writing.
The chosen acts for 2013 are: Hannah McPhillimy, Go Wolf, Howl and Basic Translation. The acts were chosen by the Oh Yeah team after a public call for submissions.
On February 7th, the programme will kick off with an event at Oh Yeah called ‘Getting To Know’. This event is part interview, part performance and part audience feedback.
The Scratch participants will then spend the rest of the year taking part in meetings and workshops with music industry professionals, including lawyers and accountants, vocal coaches, PR experts and more. The team will be sharing ideas in interactive songwriter sessions, and receive mentoring in everything from business and marketing, to interview skills and stage management. They will write and record a track professionally for a showcase EP, and organise a showcase event at the end of the programme.
