Global singing sensation Rag’N’Bone man is one of a host of leading musicians to lend their creative talents to a pioneering music project for young people which will light up the heart of Worthing.
Based at the town’s creative hub Colonnade House, #Scratchpad will see budding musicians receive expert mentoring from industry experts.
But, rather than simply going away to practice in their own bedrooms, the young people’s artistic talents will be showcased for all to see and hear – with their recordings being broadcast from a vinyl-wrapped virtual stage in the heart of the Worthing Borough Council-owned building.
The six-week project is being led by Northbrook MET college and youth music organisation AudioActive, whose track record of developing new talent includes #Scratchpad mentor Jack Stephens, of Drum’n’Bass outfit SpectraSoul, and Rizzle Kicks, who are now patrons of the charity.
AudioActive’s newest patron Rag’n’Bone Man will also make guest appearances during the project.
The Sussex-born singer is also supporting the charity’s ambitious longer term plans to develop a Centre of Excellence for grassroots talent development in Worthing.
