Truth to Tape: A Week with Honeyfeet
Sing, speak, rap and play music that matters to you on this 5 day project in July with Manchester collective Honeyfeet.
Aimed at musicians aged 16-21 interested in pursuing a music career, you’ll work together to create new tunes, record them in a studio and learn more about the music industry.
The music created will be shaped by what you’re passionate about. This could be political, relating to social or climate justice, something more personal, or anything else! This will be a supportive, respectful and creative environment for you to explore how your personal experiences, opinions and emotions can translate into your music.
The week will also involve music industry insights from Honeyfeet, with a focus on sustainable careers and artist wellbeing.
