Emerging Talent Competition / Performing at Glastonbury Festival


Information on our 2022 Emerging Talent Competition is coming soon – watch this space!

The 2020 Emerging Talent Competition winner was won by R.A.E. The incredible South-East Londoner was the overwhelming choice of our panel of judges, who were wowed by R.A.E’s radiant, pin-sharp hip-hop and R&B.

The 2019 Emerging Talent Competition winner was the soulful singer-songwriter Marie White, who has since signed with Decca Records and Universal Music Publishing Group following a year of highlights which included her performances at Glastonbury, a 6 Music live session and supporting Keane at the Royal Albert Hall.

Other recent Emerging Talent Competition finalists include rising rapper Flohio who was last week given the prestigious Music Moves Europe Talent Award; R&B singer Izzy Bizu (a 2016 BRITs Critics’ Choice nominee and winner of the 2016 BBC Music Introducing Award); and singer-songwriter Declan McKenna, who won ETC 2015 and subsequently signed with Columbia and released a successful debut album. The 2017 ETC winner was singer Josh Barry, who has since toured with Rag’n’Bone Man and Gorgon City. Meanwhile, 2016 winners She Drew The Gun have received considerable acclaim for their politically-inspired psych-pop.
