Brighter Sound

Brighter Sound is a creative music charity based in Manchester, working across the North and nationally. We believe…

  • Music making and creativity should be part of the lives of all children and young people
  • Emerging musicians should be supported to develop their artistic confidence and originality
  • The music sector should be equal and diverse

What we do

Our programme for young people includes courses in songwriting, performance, digital music, and music for young children and their families. We work across the North West with a range of partners to ensure that all young people have access to music projects. We also play a key advisory role to Music Education Hubs around inclusion.

Our emerging musicians programme includes residencies with inspirational artists, commissions, showcase events and training. We’ve connected participants with artists such as Kendrick Lamar, Everything Everything, Anna Meredith, Shiva Feshareki, Stealing Sheep, DJ Yoda, Snarky Puppy, supporting creative risk taking and artistic development.

Both Sides Now is our three-year initiative to support, inspire and showcase female music creators and up and coming industry professionals across the North of England.
