Rudimental are becoming quite well known for bringing unknown artists to the forefront of the music scene. Catapulting Ella Eyre and John Newman’s careers by collaborating with them on hit tracks such as Waiting All Night and Feel The Love, the collective revealed that even though they have now worked with the likes of Emile Sande, they also remain focused on working with raw, fresh talent.
Amir Amor who returned to the same youth club where he was taught how to play the guitar buy his mentor Plan B, divulged that one of the singers on their album Home, is in fact a young person who he used to mentor at the Chalk Farm youth club himself.
Rudimental all hail from areas in East London, not far from the mural which is the focus of their album cover.
The hitmakers have spoken numerous times about how important the youth services available to them when they were younger were, especially when it came to honing their craft.
And now, they are keen to help young people who may be from similar backgrounds to them.
In-between rehearsals for their festival bookings, interviews and celebrating their single Waiting All Night reaching number one, Rudimental found time to continue their work with young people and headlined an NCS gig in Manchester’s Gorilla which was free to 16 and 17-year-olds.
NCS provide opportunities for 16 & 17 year olds to learn life and job skills. NCS run various schemes for 16 & 17 year olds which you can find out more about on the official website.
