Xposure, a twice a month talent search and music forum, was launched on Tuesday at Peppers Lounge on West Bay Road.
The event has been set up by Dwayne Seymour, owner of Music Mogul Entertainment, and is designed for musicians keen to get ahead in the music industry.
The night’s proceedings included a bevy of local musicians who performed, many freestyle, accompanied by local band Imupulse.
Mr. Seymour said: ‘The place went crazy. There was great energy and I was really encouraged by some of the talent.’
He added that most of the performers were reggae, rap or R&B artists and stressed that Xposure is for any type of genre of music.
‘This is for all musicians and anyone who wants to get involved in music.’
Xposure will start proper on Monday, 25 September, at 8pm at Peppers. Both local and resident musicians will have the opportunity to perform and Mr. Seymour hopes friends and families will come out and support them.
‘Even if you don’t want to get up and perform, I want people to still come along and support the musicians so they can get used to performing in front of an audience.’
Mr. Seymour said that music producers will be invited to the event that will form a critique panel, advising performers on how they can progress in the music industry.
Music Mogul Entertainment will also be offering studio time and the opportunity to make a music video to selected musicians.
