We’re super excited to announce that Dom Craik, guitarist and keyboardist for English alt-rock band Nothing But Thieves is the latest addition to the NextGen judging panel, and will be helping to pick out the leading UK talent.

Our NextGen competition is aiming to support young talent across the UK, and finding the next top recording artist! Prizes include £5000 worth of studio time and production and thousands of pounds worth of music gear for participants and their schools

Formed in 2012 and signed in 2014, Nothing But Thieves have seen huge success with two top 10 albums and an uncountable number of sold out live shows. They’ve played at some of the biggest UK Festivals including Reading and Leeds and Glastonbury and have shared a stage with the likes of Muse, Biffy Clyro, Twenty One Pilots, Arcade Fire and George Ezra to mention a few. Their 2017 UK tour supporting their new album Broken Machine, has now sold out.

Being classically trained Dom Craik has extensive musical knowledge, and has a great ear for talent. Along with playing the guitar and keyboard for his band, he is also a songwriter and producer, and we are absolutely thrilled to have him on board, using his vast knowledge of the music industry to judge your NextGen entries!
