Spring is here, and with warmer weather on the horizon live music is back in full force. Now entering its sixth season, Soho Rising is our platform to champion and uncover emerging talent in the music industry by inviting breaking artists to perform around our Houses.
Dom Chung, our Global Head of Music and in-house talent expert, has hand-picked this year’s line-up of breaking artists, supported by Bowers & Wilkins.
‘Soho Rising has grown over the past five years to become an industry flagship for the best emerging talent around,’ says Chung. ‘Previous acts have included Holly Humberstone, Griff and FLO, who all went on to win a BRITs Rising Star award the same year as featuring within the Soho Rising programme. We are really proud to provide a genuine platform for next generation talent and to also allow our members to be part of the artists’ journeys from the very start.’
