The Oh Yeah Music Centre has announced the release of this year’s showcase EP from its annual talent development programme, Scratch My Progress.
The five fresh new acts which Oh Yeah took on board in September 2020 under the restrictions of the pandemic, have each written, recorded and released very different tracks in a year that has been like no other for the project or the artists.
The acts on the programme include Riley Holland, Gilmore, Gender Chores, Vivamagnolia and Lemonade Shoelace. Since March 2020, none of them has had an opportunity to play live or trial their sound in front of a live audience. Access to safe practice has been difficult too, but earlier this year they rose to the challenge and recorded a live performance under the guidance of Oh Yeah. In light of there being no opportunity for the usual live showcase, these performances were pre-recorded and can instead be viewed on the Oh Yeah YouTube Channel.
