Empowering young creatives by coming together to award and celebrate standards of excellence


Empowering our Youth

The Regional Youth Music Awards have been curated by Kizzy Morrell for the last 4 years, following the ongoing successes of her Studio 7 Artist Development Project.

Studio 7 has been developing young people's talent and singing abilities to a standard of excellence since 2000. The Regional Youth Music Awards, unites urban youth with music and media industry professionals, bridging the gap between cultures, ages and genres from Bristol and the South West. The awards will be filmed by the BBC and broadcast live on Ujima Radio.

Some of our Studio 7 artists have gone on to do very well in the industry; 

Tanya Lacy, 

Jahméne Douglas, 

Jacob Anderson aka Railiegh Richie.

to name but a few. Studio 7 helped nurture and develop these artists, not only through vocal and performance ability but also expanding their own dedication to extensive and comprehensive personal and artistic development. This creates a staying power that has been somewhat lost in the industry, as the artists learn how to deal with their newfound fame in a productive and professional manner. 



This year's Awards evening will take place at the popular Spegieltent in Bristol's City Centre.

The night's proceedings will be broken down into 3 main sections;

- The Showcase

Highlighting excellent work created and performed by young people from inner-city Bristol and the Southwest.

The showcase provides a professional platform and environment for talented musical youth, as well as an opportunity to perform for the assembled music and media industry.

- The Awards Ceremony

Presented by Special Guests from the Music Industry, the Ceremony is a special occasion for young people from underprivileged backgrounds to be recognised by the music industry and the City of Bristol for their outstanding achievements as young artists.

- The Afterparty

A chance to mingle and network with other industry professionals and the artists themselves over. 


We dedicate a huge portion of our time to do what we do for a simple reason; to ensure a better future for our young people by giving them something special and a sense of achievement.

Kizzy Morrell has been a professional singer for many years and she knows the benefits of being allowed to be open and creative. Kizzy believes that these benefits, in addition to praise being offered, will give young people the confidence not only to perform on stage, but also to build better self-confidence and self-esteem in their everyday lives.

Through our collaborative approach to artist development and vocal training, we show our young people that we do care and believe in their talents. Some of these young people have been through extremely difficult times, and this event will act as a celebration of their achievements and musical prowess. But, without your help we cannot help our young people build and grow.



We need your help in making year's Regional Youth Music Awards the best we've ever organised.

In order to make sure the event can go ahead, we need to work with sound engineers, production companies, and decor and hospitality teams. A lot of our help is offered through the kindness of our supporters' hearts, but some things still need to be paid for with cold, hard cash!

Our fundraising target for the RYMA 2014 event is £20,000 and covers paying for venue hire, equipment, expertise and catering costs.

In pledging and getting involved, you will be playing a hugely positive and inspirational part in this high-profile event.
