The new edition of the Hot Press Lockdown Sessions' Y&E Series continues tonight – supported by the Department of Media, Tourism, Arts, Culture, Sport and the Gaeltacht.
Following a powerful set from Nathan Mac last night on the Hot Press Lockdown Sessions' Y&E Series, we're delighted to present Evans Junior as our next act – going live on the Hot Press Instagram at 8.30pm tonight!
Tipped as one of our 'Hot For 2019' acts, Nigerian-born artist Evans Junior has emerged as one of the most compelling talents in the Irish hip-hop boom. Following the release of his acclaimed Organised Mess project in 2019, he continues to build up his ever-growing following with 'Know Better', 'Party' and 'Long Run'.
The new edition of the Y&E Series continues to shine a light on some of the best new and emerging talent that Ireland has to offer in 2020. Following the success of the previous edition of the series, you can once again expect 40 brilliant acts to join Hot Press on Instagram for special live-streamed performances, thanks to the support of the Department of Media, Tourism, Arts, Culture, Sport and the Gaeltacht.
With the immediate future of the live music industry remaining uncertain in the face of the global Covid-19 pandemic, the Y&E Series aims to support Ireland's remarkable new generation of artists by delivering 40 paid gigs to 40 acts over 40 days.
Watch Evans Junior tonight, September 12, as part of the Hot Press Lockdown Sessions' The Y&E Series, supported by the Department of Media, Tourism, Arts, Culture, Sport and the Gaeltacht – live on the Hot Press Instagram (@hotpressmagazine) at 8.30pm.
