Oh Yeah is delighted to reveal the five fresh new acts that have been selected for Scratch My Progress 2018. It has been a record breaking year for applications to our dedicated talent development programme which is now in its 7th year.
Scratch My Progress will support each of the acts across the next 9 months. The programme will offer them mentoring, advice, signposting and support from industry professionals. They will work with our dedicated Talent Development Coordinator to uncover opportunities and take part in workshops, studio time, professional photo shoots, showcase gigs, vocal coaching and more. They will avail of free rehearsal time and receive PR and digital marketing support.
Oh Yeah is an official Talent Development partner of the PRS Foundation along with 39 other cohorts working with new music across the UK. The programme is supported through the Help Musicians UK National Grants Programme. This will give Oh Yeah access to network alongside the 20 other committed organisations in receipt of the grant and will support Scratch in promoting and nurturing strong emerging talent, both locally and to audiences, industry and festivals on a wider level. Oh Yeah and Scratch My Progress is also supported by Arts Council of Northern Ireland.
