Connecting young people with sound opportunities


Come As You Are – The Podcast – produced by Emily Heaton (Plugged In Producers)

This is the Come As You Are Podcast, a brand-new show placing the spotlight on the next generation of talent emerging from the alt/indie/punk scene across Yorkshire. Having recently performed at the Come As You Are Festival, each artist has been in conversation with our journalist, Emily, to reveal everything from their journeys into music to who their biggest influences are.

Join us as we hear from Tymisha, Lucy Austin, The Marble Arches and Django Jones and The Mystery Men!
