Samsung has revealed details of its new Launching People scheme, which will offer young, undiscovered talent the opportunity to work one-on-one with a celebrity mentor to make the most of their potential.
Musicians from the UK and Ireland are being offered the great chance to be mentored by Paloma Faith, who will work with the candidate develop their ideas and put together a unique, collaborative project.
The process of meeting and working with Faith will be documented in a television series arriving later this year.
“I’m really looking for something that we’ve not seen in a British artist before,” said Paloma Faith. “What’s important to me is that the person has something innovative to offer, something that defies genre. I’m looking for outsiders. I love and relate to outsiders. The thought of finding someone like that excites me.”
If you are interested in Launching People and think your musical prowess is what Samsung and Faith are looking for, upload a two minute pitch video on www.launchingpeople.co.uk between now and Thursday 6 March 2014.
The project is also targeting people who are passionate about food, film and photography with its other three mentors: Gizzi Erskine, Idris Elba and Rankin.
