Over the past 21 years, MOBO have been dedicated to providing opportunities and platforms for exceptional British talent. While we’ve witnessed and celebrated the success of artists like Stormzy, Sam Smith, Emeli Sandé, Rita Ora, Skepta, FKA twigs, Krept and Konan – who were all given their first UK TV break through MOBO - we also understand that there’s a wealth of promising young talent toiling in obscurity right across the country. With that in mind, MOBO are pleased to announce that MOBO UnSung, our exciting initiative geared at identifying and showcasing new, ground-breaking, unsigned artists and their music, is BACK!
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, that MOBO UnSung offers is an opportunity you cannot miss out on! Open to singers, songwriters, producers, rappers and poets (who write/compose their own material). MOBO UnSung is about championing creative individuals who may not be household names in their field but are already showing great promise.
So, if you think you have what it takes to become an industry success, with the drive and desire to take your music career to the next level, simply complete the form below, submit a link to your music and keep your fingers crossed. And, if you miss out, don’t say we didn’t warn you!!!!!!!!
