The latest announcement from the Mayor of London‘s year-long #BehindEveryGreatCity campaign, celebrating and supporting women in the capital city, is Nexxt Step, a programme led by BBC 1Xtra’s Sian Anderson that will mentor and help young women in music.

Artists between 18-24 living in London can apply to Nexx Step for the chance to help their music career, with Sian harnessing her mentoring skills that have seen countless artists and industry professionals alike graduate from her guidance and previous programmes such as Floor Sixx and One True Calling. Studio sessions and writing camps are part of the programme, with an EP to be released featuring the artists via Sian’s new Parlophone label Saint Music and performances at XOYO and London’s City Hall in November.
