And to the lovely band Brand New Friend who also recently signed to Xtra Mile Recordings

Brand New Friend played their first ever gig at Oh Yeah for Volume Control when their keyboard player Lauren was on the team – they’ve come a long way in such a short space of time, we wish them all the success!

Capital XTRA’s Music Potential has kicked off at the Oh Yeah Centre. 

Over 50 young adults from a wide range of backgrounds have been offered the opportunity to gain experience and a qualification through the programme currently being delivered over the last two weeks at Oh Yeah in conjunction with Capital XTRA and the Big Lottery.

There are five learning streams currently being delivered; Radio Production, Music Production, Studio Production, Live Events Management and Songwriting and Performance Skills. Each stream is engaging with a group of young people who are all hoping to make their big break in their chosen field, with the help of experienced industry mentors.

A showcase of all material and learning will be happening in Belfast in April before three acts and a live events team head to London to perform and produce a national showcase in Koko, Camden in late May.

The talent and commitment on display from day one has been amazing. Watch this space for interviews, videos, tracks and more coming from the Music Potential programme.
