The LIMF Academy have announced their class of 2021/22.

The next cohort of music makers have been given access to the award-winning LIMF Academy talent development programme.

Ten artists have been selected, and will benefit from a year-long initiative including masterclasses, showcases, bursaries, life-coaching and advice.

The three Most Ready artists are all female for the first time, and each will receive extra support such as studio time and the creation of professional assets.

The Most Ready artists are: Amber Jay, Lazygirl and Ni Maxine.

We will be publishing interviews with the three Most Ready artists in the coming days.

The rest of the class of 2021/22 consists of DAYZY, Hannah-Morgan, Superlate, Philly D, Cures and Curses, Vaunce and ALEXNDER.

LIMF curator Yaw Owusu says; “This year’s Academy line-up is one of our strongest to date – all of them are so different to each other, offering up real diversity in so many ways. After such a tough couple of years for the music industry, and specifically for emerging artists, we are very happy to double down on our efforts to support this new cohort with a better-than-ever programme.

Myself and the wider Academy team are excited to start working with these artists and see what difference we can make together and hopefully set them on the right path to achieving their music ambitions.”

Interviews with the three Most Ready artists to follow.
