The latest batch of young musicians have graduated from the Levi’s Music Project and to celebrate the brand has released a documentary chronicling the journeys of the emerging artists. Having been mentored by Loyle Carner as well as a host of experienced producers and industry professionals in Liverpool, the class of 2019 received expert advice to help them hone their sound as well as advice for their futures.
To celebrate the progress made by the students, Levi’s hosted musical performances at Sound City Sunday Festival in Liverpool, with each of the students – as well as Loyle Carner himself – taking to the Constellations Stage. The weekend also saw workshops and talks from music industry experts for attendees to gain better insight on the process.
As well as the class of 2019, previous Levi’s Music Project alumni returned to perform, including Hak Bakar and Keedz. Festival goers were also able to visit the Levi’s Print Bar to pick up unique customised gear and visit “Double Exposure”, an exhibition by photographer Dean Davies, who documented the progress of the Levi’s Music Project students throughout their journey.
Shot over 6 months, the documentary follows 13 young people from the local community as they create, and collaborate to prepare for the opening slot before Loyle Carner’s headline set at Sound City Festival. By working with local partners Liverpool Lighthouse, the music space featured in this documentary will be permanently open to the community.
