As we know, our city is packed with creative musical talent just waiting for a spotlight to shine on, and team at Multi-Track along with Colston hall are looking to provide it.
A free event will be taking place this Thursday at Colston Hall to showcase some of the emerging talents the city has to offer, with headline performances from grime MC and producer Novelist, along with Bristol grime producer OH91.
With his career taking off at the tender age of 17, Novelist is a much-coveted grime artist who has gone from strength to strength with MOBO Award and Mercury Prize nominations under his belt. Not only will Novelist be performing, but he will also host a Q&A session before the show.
