Remote Hope is a collective of eclectic young musicians from across Greater Manchester, formed on a six-week music employability course in partnership with the Prince’s Trust.
On the course the group explored the creative and practical elements of working in the music industry, collaborated to create, record and release an EP of new music, took part in workshops and masterclasses led by industry experts and received 1:1 support to help them plan for their next steps.
Working together remotely, the artists have produced a diverse body of new sounds, weaving together their different musical backgrounds and influences which you can listen to below…
