On the 2nd of July 2022, The Saving Grace Collective and Bassment Studios will hold the ‘High-Frequency Showcase’ featuring sounds from the 2022 graduates of the HF Development Initiative as part of the Kirklees Year of Music 2023 Music Industry Programme.
Officially launched in January 2022, The Saving Grace Collective alongside Bassment Studios, with support from Kirklees Council and Saving Grace Music, revealed a new talent and skills development project entitled ‘The HF Development Initiative’.
The HF Initiative is an evolution of the organisation’s vision from the first Highest Frequency project compilation with a goal to further nurture local talent by including;
- Audio production and mixing assistance
- Showcase and performance opportunities
- Marketing and promotion of your finished song to all major digital music platforms globally
- Event management/promotion workshops and opportunities
- Industry advice, guidance and support for your first steps into the music industry
The project ran for a total of six months with the aim of providing applicants with the skills and real-world experience in music production, performance and release guidance as well as event management and promotion.
Funding for the project was received from the Gainshare COVID recovery fund alongside the ongoing support of the LEP (West Yorkshire combined authority) and Kirklees Council for the Year of Music 2023.
To celebrate all the work completed during the six-month programme, The Saving Grace Collective and Bassment Studios are hosting the 2022 graduate HF showcase which will feature DJ sets from the likes of;
The Mighty Funkhouser
The event is free to attend and tickets can be obtained at https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/hf2-artist-showcase-networking-event-tickets-372912089097
Commenting on the HF Initiative, Savvy aka Nigel Cudjoe, Founder of the Saving Grace Collective / Music said: “We’re so excited to be celebrating the graduates of the 2022 HF Initiative at the showcase with Bassment Studios.
“For this year’s programme, we’ve been lucky enough to work with some really inspiring and talented music professionals from right across our region.
“Our goal with the HF Initiative is to continuously develop the initiative alongside Kirklees Council and our other partners year on year, creating more creative opportunities, spaces for inclusion and avenues for career development as we progress.”
