Tomorrow’s Warriors has secured funding through the Youth Music Trailblazer scheme to deliver A GRIME SUPREME in Gloucester and Kingston-Upon-Hull.

A GRIME SUPREME develops new musical collaborations between jazz musicians and grime artists, building cross-genre understanding and opening new opportunities to participants. The expanded development programme builds on the first pilot workshop held in April 2022 at the Southbank Centre, London. 

The initial 2022 workshop sessions featured TW alumni Moses Boyd and XVNGO alongside acclaimed producer Swindle and was made possible by the amazing support of the Baytrilla Memorial Fund. Bailey Churchill (aka Baytrilla) was a talented DJ and music producer with a bright future, who tragically passed away in 2020 aged just 26. The Memorial Fund was established by Bailey’s mother, Jo, to honour his memory and help fulfil some of his music dreams.

Tomorrow’s Warriors will partner with The Music Works and Jazz Stroud in the Gloucester/Stroud area, and Hull Jazz Festival, Hull Music Service, and Beats Bus in Hull, using their extensive networks of musicians to recruit both grime and jazz musicians for the project. 

The project seeks to address diversity within the music industry talent pipeline, inequality of access to music instrument education based on financial means and tackle the lack of representation for black musicians in the music industry, championing musical styles of black origin.
