Something for the weekend

A new social enterprise appears to be bubbling up from the shoreline in Torquay in Devon from half a dozen passionate people that have come together to collaborate in the music and visual world to launch new talent as well as reach out to other young people who may be struggling with their social and emotional wellbeing in the current climate.  Its early days but this collective of bright minds might just break the music mould and create an outlet of support that's affordable, sustainable and driven by passion and skill.  Below is one of the first artists, Anika, that they are looking to promote and launch. Great acoustics, lighting and atmosphere from this unplugged and talented pair in the intimate live lounge in Torquay.

Good luck Kal, Anica, Badger and Sebastian I think you have something special here!
