Ultimate Artists is an artist development company working with aspiring artists and producers who are serious about a career in the music business. We bring in our team of music industry professionals who stay on site with us for the 10 days, sharing their expertise in getting you to the next stage in your artistic journey. Looking at everything from; Singing, Songwriting, Production, Performance, to your Artist Identity & Brand. Our team have worked with some of the biggest names in music including Little Mix, JP Cooper, Emeli Sandé, Ray Charles, & Michael Jackson to name a few. But for 10 days we gather to work with aspiring artists like YOU!

We are offering a fully funded place at our 2018 10 day Summer Artist Development Programme from August 9th – 19th

What will you be doing?
You will stay with us for 10 days, working with our team of experts on your artistry developing your skills in singing, songwriting, performing, producing, and showcase material created during your time at UA. This will all culminate in a Music Industry Finale Showcase at the end of the week. You will also feature on the official UA single which will be released worldwide with it’s music video. You will take part in all industry workshops and Q&A sessions including meeting JP Cooper who will be joining us at UA2018.

Who should apply for this opportunity?
We have three opportunities: Performance Pathway, Singer/Songwriter Pathway, & Producer Pathway. The performance pathway is for anyone who is already singing but would like to learn how to better deliver their performances, how to use the stage, connection to text, audition ‘do’s’ and ‘don’ts,’ choreography – this pathway would be well suited to them. The singer/songwriter pathway is for those wanting to develop their singing technically (BV’s & Harmony), find their own unique sound, develop their songwriting, work with and conduct a band. The producer pathway is for those producers wanting to work with other writers and producers, develop their abilities to produce for different genres and artists, have the material created during the 10 days showcased to industry A&R, understand the music business aspect for producers.

Why should you apply for this opportunity?
UA enables aspiring artists to not only work with some of the industry’s most sought after professionals, but to live, breathe, eat, and sleep music for 10 days. With a combination of classes, workshops, performances, and industry nights, they will come away better knowing how they can navigate their careers in what can be a difficult industry, with their own personal road maps of how to get there. Along with collaborating and building their network of other musicians, singers, producers, and industry professionals.
