Musicians from the South Wales valleys will have a brighter future after receiving funding from a major charity.

The Forté Project selects 10 emerging artists from different areas each year, including Rhondda Cynon Taff, Caerphilly, Merthyr Tydfil, Bridgend and the Vale of Glamorgan. It targets talented musicians between the age of 18 and 25.

Among the bands which are the current beneficiaries of this music scheme are Alex Stacey, Bryony Sier, Fire Fences, HVNTER, KayCee, Luk, Luna Tides, Ofelia, Upbeat Sneakers and Young Calypso. Many of them have released new music creations this month with the support of the Forté Project.

These chosen artists are able to participate in many professional lessons. For example, song-writing workshops, industry related seminars, signposted opportunities, rehearsal space, recording sessions, bespoke audience development support and live opportunities.

In cooperation with the PRS Foundation, the Forté Project is going to expand the scale of its operations in the future. It means more artists would have the chance to get involve in the scheme.
