Noise from the Lockdown Generation

Calling all young songwriters and aspiring musicians! Noise from the Lockdown Generation is a celebration of original music made by young people age 11-18 at home during lockdown. It is a unique support network for young musicians.

If you have written songs over the past year we would love to hear them, and if you need support to improve or begin your compositions and production, help is available!

Nottingham Music Hub - with support from Young Hustlers and Young Creatives Nottingham - are super pleased to announce the launch of Noise from the Lockdown Generation, a new initiative for songwriters in Nottingham aged 11 to 18.

Whether you have experience or not, and whatever the genre, there's support available for you.

By sharing your music with Noise from the Lockdown Generation, you will not just get a platform to be heard but also receive the following fantastic benefits. You will be:   

  • Allocated a mentor, who will give you individual feedback and advice on your songwriting;

  • Invited to attend free online Masterclasses to support your craft, featuring local musicians and industry professionals;

  • Supported to enter online celebratory event ‘Noise from the Lockdown Generation’, if appropriate;

  • Supported to enter the music category of the Young Creative Awards, if appropriate;

  • Supported to prepare for a performance at the Young Hustlers festival, if appropriate.

To get involved, email sending copies of your music if you have some, and/or thoughts on what support you would like from us.
