An under-18s night at Band on the Wall, Sing City Writes features the best of new material written by young people from our regular Sing City sessions. Showcasing Manchester’s up-and-coming music talent, Sing City Writes is a great opportunity for young musicians to share their material and perform at one of the city’s most iconic music venues.
The Sing City Writes night has successfully partnered up with other musical and creative projects from across Manchester to meet up and share a growing body of work. Likeminded young people are encouraged to work together and collaborate on new ideas, with key support from our team of professional musicians and practitioners.
Many Sing City regulars have formed musical partnerships and together they make use of the Sing City Writes platform to showcase their new material. Over the past year Sing City Writes has seen performances ranging from solo folk and acoustic artists, emerging hip-hop rappers, to indie and rock bands. The night belongs to the young musicians; it is their chance to shine.
So far we have successfully shared the night with the wonderful PowerHouse Project, Z Arts Saturday Allsorts and The Whitworth Young Contemporaries. We've also had special guest performances from Chris Royal (BBC’s The Voice) Lei Jennings and young Manchester band the Korsairs.
If you're a young musician looking for a place to showcase your material, meet other creatives and get inspired, Sing City Writes is the place to be. Come and join us on a Wednesday evening at our free Sing City vocal, songwriting and recording sessions and sign up for a spot on Sing City Writes.
