The oldest grand music hall in the world is putting the music very firmly back into the Hall with the world premiere of the Wilton’s Music 4all Festival. Wilton’s is a hub of inspiration for new talent and this year we are focusing on emerging musical talent.

We have selected the best emerging artists in each of the following categories:
Contemporary & Jazz
Rock, Pop & Indie
Cabaret & Alternative
Urban, Electronic & DJ

They are being mentored by a professional individual or organisation and rehearsing at Wilton’s, ready to perform live as part of the Festival in May. Mentors include: English National Opera, Dan Gillespie Sells, Tim Whitehead, Bengi Ünsal and DJ Yoda.

The artists performing in the Rock, Pop & Indie category are:
Foxes & Hedgehogs
Foxes & Hedgehogs are an indie-rock band from London, featuring Daniel Yin (vocals), Michael Holmes (guitar, organ), Matt Beer (drums), Jack Skelly (bass) and Matt Young (keys). Their music covers ground from ballads and hard rockers to dreamy boppers and melodic poppers. Inspiration stems from Wilco, Spiritualized and Pixies, amongst others. The lyrics, like the music, can be playful, longing and reflective. They explore the universal themes of relationships, loss, and the conflict between love and selfish desire. The band released their debut album ‘Brightest When it Sets’ in December 2019.

Saachi Sen
Saachi Sen is a Mumbai-born, London-grown indie-pop singer/songwriter, previously a Resident Artist at Camden’s Roundhouse and recipient of PRS for Music’s prestigious Lynsey de Paul songwriting prize. Her 2019 highlights include being selected for the Longlist of Glastonbury’s Emerging Talent Competition and playing twice to 10,000 people at Trafalgar Square – for Pride in London and the city’s official Diwali celebrations. Saachi is set to release her first solo EP in the upcoming year, featuring recordings at Abbey Road and Spotify Secret Genius studios. With influences like Norah Jones and Don McLean, her songwriting showcases soaring melodies and vivid lyrical imagery.

Sam Wilkinson
Sam Wilkinson is a singer-songwriter from Lewisham. He plays guitar and harmonica and sings his own songs and classics by Bob Dylan, Jack Johnson and Glen Hansard among others. Sam began performing in 2018 at open mics and festivals around South London. On Sundays he was busking at Petticoat Lane Market. Sam was voted the winner of The Voice Kids 2019 after singing one of his own songs, ‘Everything’s Alright’, in the final. Since then Sam has played at the Shepherd’s Bush Empire and has performed one of his own songs at the Royal Albert Hall for the charity Bloodwise.
