Youth centres help pave the way for award-winning musician

A budding musician has been making his mark on the music scene.

Dean Joseph performed and pitched to some of the UK's big brand names at Google offices in London last month to gain funding for the National Big Music Project.

He also picked up the Musical Entrepreneur Award: Most Positive and Sustainable at an awards ceremony in the House of Commons at the end of October.

The East Berkshire College student spends much of his time making music at 4 Marlow Road Youth Centre in Maidenhead and Windsor Youth Centre in Alma Road.

"I'm into a lot of different types of music, jazz, blues, hip hop, RnB," said the 18-year-old.

"My music is mainly just hip hop and rap."

He added the youth centres and area youth worker Hardip Dhanjal have really helped him get his name out there.

Dean, who also helps out at the youth centres, cites Michael Jackson, James Brown and 2Pac among his musical influences.
