What is Honey Sessions?

An exciting new music industry project aiming to support and inspire young songwriters, artists, producers and project managers who work in hip hop, rap and grime, r’n’b and pop music in Wales.

 

The ‘Honey Sessions’ provides a unique opportunity for young artists and young producers to work together to make brand new music and to further their knowledge of the industry by learning from a range of high profile industry professionals.

 

The ‘Honey Sessions’ places an emphasis on artists and producers creating MOBO - Music of Black Origin - and will highlight emerging creators in this encompassing genre. 

 

The ‘Honey Sessions’ has been developed in consultation with a range of industry professionals working specifically in MOBO genres. Sizwe Chitiyo, musician and Beacons Officer, has long felt the need for support for MOBO music in Wales. ‘Young people creating music in MOBO genres have previously lacked support in many areas of the industry, the ‘Honey Sessions’ has been designed to provide a platform for creativity and knowledge to those emerging musicians, as well as creating a new network of high profile industry expertise. We want the Honey Sessions to provide a community with the space and the support to help them flourish!’

 

The launch of Honey Sessions in 2021 brought with it fantastic collaborations, crucial insight and a springboard platform to 13 standout artists and producers.
