Next Up with FRED & Kamille

She Is The Music has partnered with Fred Again and Kamille to launch NextUp, a UK Mentorship Program for female Producers.

In 2019, a survey of the top songs in America found that of the 651 producers credited only 2.6% were women. The music industry is failing women producers.

FRED & Kamille are proud to partner with She Is The Music to launch Next Up, a program to scout and develop the next leading women producers in the UK. Participants will receive focused mentorship from FRED and Kamille across several intimate studio sessions. They will also receive industry advice and guidance from She Is The Music, Promised Land Music and Universal Music Publishing.

Apply by October 31. We will run a competitive admission process that selects 10 recipients to participate in the program. The program will begin in January 2021 (pending government guidelines) and participants will need to be available for studio sessions approximately one day each month for the duration of the year. The sessions will take place in London. Participants may apply for funding to cover travel costs within the application.

Please note that you will not be able to save your application. We recommend typing long answers in a separate document in the event that your session times out. This application will take approximately 30 minutes to complete.
