MOBO UnSung is a standalone competition dedicated to identifying and celebrating the next generation of musical talent.
Offering opportunities to undiscovered artists is nothing new. But the year-round career guidance, vital contact introductions, studio time with renowned producers, touring opportunities and more which MOBO UnSung provides, plays a pivotal role in launching the careers of future MOBO stars.
Open to singers, songwriters, producers, rappers and poets (who write/compose their own material), MOBO UnSung is the premiere destination to source the best emerging talent in the UK.
Previous winners of MOBO UnSung include songwriter/producer Alika (2016), who already boasts collaborations with MOBO Award-winner Nadia Rose under her belt, MiC Lowry (2014), who supported Justin Bieber during his European tour and signed a lucrative record deal with Sony, and Esco Williams (2012).
With the ability to spot outstanding emerging talent in the early stages of their career, MOBO UnSung is a platform dedicated to championing creative individuals who may not be household names in their field but are already showing great promise.
Through 2017 the UnSung artists will receive opportunities to attend industry seminars to learn about key areas of the industry from music professionals, live performance opportunities across the UK to reach new audiences, as well as studio time with established songwriters and producers to further enhance their creative output.
Supported by PRS for Music Foundation, MOBO UnSung aims to provide emerging artists with priceless opportunities which can significantly contribute to their personal creative development, whilst improving their understanding of the music industry.
