shaunblezardThis year I have become one of the cohort on Sound and Music’s New Voices scheme.

This is a huge honour for me.

To get this level of recognition from a national organisation I have so much respect for is fantastic.

SaM said of New Voices

Welcome to New Voices 2014. You have a wonderful journey of discovery ahead of you as these composers represent some of the most exciting early to mid-career composers working in Britain today.

2014 is a landmark year for Sound and Music as we launch New Voices with many new initiatives taking shape to enable more people to enjoy and explore a wide range of new music. In this year alone we will see the beginning of the transformation of the British Music Collection into a world leading resource for new music discovery, including the launch of a new, more interactive and dynamic website; the opening of a brand new archive centre at the University of Huddersfield; a partnership with Google Cultural Institute that will exhibit both the New Voices and the wider British Music Collection to a global audience of many thousands; plus a whole range of talent development, education and audience development activity that you can find out about on our website.
