A PROJECT aimed at developing new music talent is hitting the road across the Black Country to hook budding stars up with industry experts.
Base Bands, a collaboration between Youth Music and Base Studios in Stourbridge, has recruited top songwriters, producers and artists to share their know-how with young people.
The project's team will be travelling around the region for day-long workshop sessions at live music venues which will feature one-to-one surgeries and masterclasses from music business insiders.
Warren Evans, from Base Studios, said: "The Base Bands tour is a great way for young musicians to hear from experts on how they can improve their songwriting and performance skills as well as show off their talent to people in the industry.
"The sessions are all free and we are hoping young musicians will take this chance to learn from people who have the experience of building successful careers in music."
Base Bands will be at the Robin 2 in Bilston on Saturday October 19 where Richard March from Pop Will Eat Itself and Bentley Rhythm Ace will be the guest speaker.
The project will also be visiting Netherton Art Centre on Saturday October 26, Vagabonds in Brierley Hill on Sunday November 10 and Benjamins in Halesowen on Sunday December 1.
