Momentum: Barney Artist
Barney Artist is a 26-year-old East Londoner from Forest Gate who fuses 90s era boom bap hip-hop with jazz for a refreshing sound harkening back to legends such as A Tribe Called Quest and The Roots, and taking influence from prolific UK artists including Kano and Ghostpoet. Barney Artist will use the funding to take his message further, promoting good music and honesty.
Barney Artist said,
“It’s such a massive deal to be selected, we are extremely grateful and this really gives us the opportunity to push everything we release next year as much as we can and in ways we wouldn’t have been able to otherwise. I’m really excited to get started for 2019 in the best way possible and to feel supported. This really makes such a massive difference, so thank you so much!”
