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 Urban, Electronic & DJ category are:
Jess Fisher
Jess Fisher is 20 years old and was born with Cerebral palsy, which means she has to use a wheelchair to get around. However, she does not allow this to affect her life and enjoys a number of different things, including sport, and being involved with her church, where she developed a love of music. Over recent years she has been fortunate to work alongside Inspire Youth Arts, who have helped her to produce music electronically, and more recently has been introduced to ‘Control One’ which is an adapted wheelchair controller, that allows her to put together and perform music independently.

On top of worldwide press, TV and radio attention, Zkeletonz have reached huge audiences at home thanks to airplay on BBC Introducing, Channel 4 Sunday Brunch, Amazing Radio and Radio X, plus features by Birmingham Mail, Louder Than War, the Irish Post front cover, and Mancunion, the UK’s biggest student newspaper. The critically acclaimed trio’s live performances always cause chaos in the crowd, which continues to grow. Major gigs so far have included headlining for Vice at London’s Old Blue Last and Sebright Arms, selling out The Victoria Dalston, and a live BBC session at Coventry’s 60,000 capacity Godiva Festival.

Eliza Willmott – Azileli
Azileli (AKA Eliza Willmott) is a singer-songwriter, producer and visual artist from South London. Influenced by trip-hop, soul, R&B and electronic music, her lifelong interest in music-making lead to a degree in Creative Music Technology, developing critical and technical skills to enhance her productions. Finding herself as the only female on her course, Azileli is an advocate for female run spaces, representation and opportunities aimed to tackle the gender imbalance in her field. Having recently completed a 6-month internship in a music studio in Paris, Azileli is working on developing her live set-up and is currently finalising her first EP.

With thanks to DJ Yoda for mentoring the Urban, Electronic & DJ category.

An award-winning DJ and pioneer of a new form of audio-visual entertainment, DJ Yoda enjoys finding inventive collaborators outside of the club environment. His extensive career has seen him work with Bansky, Radio 4, Neuroscientists, Brass Bands and Mark Ronson, to name a few.  He has regularly appeared on Radio 1 alongside Steve Lamacq and Annie Mac, and was Dr Dre’s top choice to guest star on his Beats 1 show for Apple Music.  

Yoda is known for mixing and scratching visuals from film with music to create a DJ set.  His unique style has landed him some interesting jobs including mashing up the entire of Radio 4 for BBC Music day. The mix featured the shipping forecast, John Humpries and The Archers. His ‘Stanger Things Mix’ had over half a million plays on soundcloud and led to the UK tour of Stranger Things Mix Tape Live in 2016.

Yoda has and continues to bring creativity to his sets along with his signature sense of humour.
