To create this dynamic scene the group, which is managed by We Make Culture and supported by Arts Council England and Sunderland Music Hub, are looking to local musicians who have tasted success to impart a bit of knowledge and there’s not many who have been more successful than Paul Smith of Maximo Park who released six studio albums, with the first two albums going gold in the UK and their debut being nominated for the Mercury Prize.
