Who we are

Brighter Sound is a creative music charity based in the North of England and working across the UK. We believe music making and creativity should be a central pillar in the lives of all children and young people, that emerging musicians should be supported to develop their artistic confidence and originality, and that the music sector should be equal and diverse.

What we do

We produce creative music projects and events, engaging with the wider UK music industry, and run a diverse range of programmes that connect a variety of people through music and creativity. Our activity changes the lives of individuals through music, supports and promotes diverse talent and acts as a catalyst for change in the music industry.
