Live Music Now Wales is looking for new musicians (soloists and bands) in Acoustic, Rock & Pop, Classical, Jazz, Folk and World Music genres. LMN offers training and paid performance opportunities to emerging professional musicians. Our scheme helps musicians kick start their professional career whilst allowing them to engage with a wide variety of audiences.
We're looking for brilliant artists who want to develop themselves professionally, and who have that spark and passion to share their music with a wider audience including older people in care homes, children with special educational needs, and other vulnerable groups.

Celebrated accordion player Jamie Smith, says Live Music Now has hugely impacted his career, "I was recommended to join the scheme by musician friends who were LMN alumni," he explains. "It was the best decision I could have made, because I have gained so much from my time with LMN. As a young musician, regular work is invaluable for financial support," he continued, "but I also learnt so much about getting the best out of an audience, and gained confidence to perform in any setting. Even having an audience to play for can be a battle for early career musicians – and with LMN not only is the audience provided for you, but they are the best kind, those the most appreciative of the music you bring."
Applications deadline is the 2nd March 2015. Auditions will be held on 13/14 April 2015 in Cardiff. To register your interest and request an application form visit: livemusicnow.org.uk/request_an_application_form
