We’ve been working with our friends at Voice FM to bring you the best local talent with the Hightown Sessions! Our latest session with The Sea Slugs is recorded at Hightown Studios, our recording facility in Thornhill. Xan Phillips chats with the band and they perform their own unique combination of afrobeat and jazz. Listen to the Voice FM show here, or take a look at our videos of the session on SoCo’s YouTube channel.
SoCo Music Project are excited to announce the launch of “National Christmas Song Writing Week” 2nd-9th December!
As December arrives we are bombarded with the all too familiar avalanche of Christmas songs, from the rousing Fairytale of New York to the sugar coated Last Christmas. Some hold a special place in our hearts; others make us long for the safe airwaves of the summer. SoCo Music Project are launching the first National Christmas Song Writing Week to get peoples creative festive juices flowing, to provide some exciting alternatives to the existing assortment of Christmas songs, and to have a bit of Christmas fun.
Here at SoCo Music Project we are delighted to announce we’ve just been awarded funding for our Music Revolution scheme!
Despite tough competition, we have been offered a grant from Youth Music, to set up youth-led groups across Hampshire.
Music Revolution will provide workshops throughout the county, enabling young people to learn through music, and create their own musical revolutions, incorporating performances, music-making, masterclasses and events.
The project will cover areas that suffer from rural insolation and urban deprivation. By providing them with the power and tools we hope to help young people to realise their creative potential.
