Artist Development


Higher Rhythm Ltd is a leading provider of Music Artist Development in Yorkshire

We work with national partners / funders such as Arts Council England, Help Musicians UK, PRS Foundation and work with organisations such as, Music:Leeds, Come Play With Me, DMF Digital, Generator, Liverpool Sound City, plus many more to add strength to our work within the regional music industry and provide artist development which links to wider priorities and programmes. We also run Music Industry Yorkshire a regional music industry development network, which sits alongside our artist development opportunities to provide comprehensive support for music artists and enterprises across the region through events, seminars, advice and networking opportunities.

Breakthrough, our ongoing annual artist development programme run in partnership with Help Musicians UK  and part funded by Help Musicians and Arts Council England, provides intensive ‘holistic’ support for regional artists and has led to successes such as increased music sales, appearances at festivals,  record deals and huge leaps in professional practice for the artists involved, ultimately building artistic sustainability.  As part of the launch of the Breakthrough programme, we have published several artist support tools to help music artists find their own way in the industry.
