AWM Next Generation is a voluntary project launched by Alton to help support and develop up-and-coming musicians. As well as helping make promotional videos for artists, Alton regularly hosts intimate showcase evening for artists to perform and build networks.
12 years ago as a young unknown musician, Alton reached out to his idols and fellow performers to try and get advice, help and guidance, but recalls rarely receiving so much as a message of acknowledgement back. After experiencing the frustration first hand of trying to break into the ultra competitive music industry, and having spent more than a decade building his own fanbase, Alton was inspired to launch the AWMTV project.
Alton voluntarily works with young up-and-coming singer songwriters, offering advice, hosting live showcase events, recording collaborations and delivering music marketing workshops. Alton also works personally with these youngsters to help them create stunning live videos that they can take away and use to help when applying for gigs, radio play, festival slot and all promotional purposes. As well as this, Alton features all performers on his own social media channels to introduce them to his army of loyal followers and help them gain the exposure thats so hard to get when starting out on a musical journey.
In 2019, Alton will be launching the AWM Next Generation roadshow, across the whole of East Anglia. Whether you are a budding musician looking to perform yourself or simply enjoy listening to live music and want to discover the next big thing, these nights are a must for all music fans!

No young artist is ever charged for anything that is produced by AWMTV.
