Presenting ‘Best of Me’ by The Late 8ights

We’re excited to present the latest album made by young people on Making Tracks; listen below to ‘Best of Me’ by The Late 8ights – a new band formed on a project in June in partnership with The Prince’s Trust Get Started at their Morgan Stanley Centre in Poplar.

As well as writing some brilliant original music together – they spent a day learning about how to create their own radio show! They called the station ‘Woody Radio’ and the show ‘The Tea’ – it’s track 5 below.

Making Tracks: new album ‘Moments’

In March 2018 a group of young people took part in Making Tracks, formed the band ‘Trustees’ and together created a set of songs written from their own perspectives and life experiences for the album ‘Moments’, as well as producing their own radio show ‘New Era on UA Radio’.

This album includes live recordings from the performance at Croydon Hive.

Making Tracks is a programme developed by the Irene Taylor Trust to positively engage young people in the community by providing enriching creative opportunities. This project was run in partnership with The Prince’s Trust’s Get Started programme.

This May we’re excited to be taking our Making Tracks programme to East London for the first time, working in partnership with the Prince’s Trust Get Started Programme, Morgan Stanley Centre in Poplar. We’re able to extend the programme to East London thanks to support from Arts Council England, the London Community Foundation, Comic Relief Dispossessed Fund, and The Mercers’ Company.

We’d love for you to join us to enjoy a performance of original music, written and played by young people from East London on Friday 13th May at 6pm.

Over just 5 days, led by The Irene Taylor Trust’s project team, the young people taking part will learn how to play instruments, form a band and write their own original songs. After taking part in the intensive project, the young people will be given the opportunity to hone their new-found skills in series of special follow-on sessions. Suitable progression routes and further development opportunities for the individual young people will be identified by our Personal Development Manager.
