JAKE BUGG X FLAMES

The Flames Collective is UD’s flagship programme, working with young people from inner-city secondary schools who demonstrate high potential when it comes to music.

Born in 2016, from a series of songwriting camps, Flames now gives 20+ young people with singing talent, recruited via the schools projects, an entry into the world of the professional music industry.

Participants benefit from year-round weekly sessions and weekend or holiday camps offering expertise in vocal technique, songwriting, performance skills and the opportunity to record and perform at live gigs.

The regular rehearsals help mentors signpost candidates to more advanced creative programmes run by UD – check the Incubator programme – which gives promising emerging artists tailored support. Such has been the success of the Collective, the Flames released their debut four-track EP in 2019 to much applause.

With an unparalleled track record of supporting Black and culturally diverse talent, we aim to support young people in what could be the beginning of their journey in music.
