Tomorrow's Warriors Junior Band is an exciting new line-up of musicians aged 14-16, featuring some of the most promising musicians on Tomorrow's Warriors' award-winning Young Artist Development Programme. The band are closely mentored by Rosie Turton - one of the finest trombonists on the London scene - as well as Dian Gasper, Axel Kaner-Lidstrom, and Gary Crosby OBE.

Whilst following the lineage of jazz of the great jazz canon, they bring their own unique style and arrangements to their music.

Tomorrow’s Warriors’ talent development programme has helped nurture an astounding list of award-winning alumni including Nubya Garcia, Shabaka Hutchings, Ezra Collective, Moses Boyd, Binker Golding and a whole host more. At the heart of this incredible musical movement is the ethos of ‘each one, teach one’, with each generation sharing their time and supporting the musicians that follow in their footsteps. The creative results are nothing short of inspiring and intoxicating, as witnessed in the new Tomorrow’s Warriors album, I Am Warrior.

For over 30 years, Tomorrow’s Warriors has played a vital role within its community and the wider music industry and has been credited with literally changing the face of UK jazz.

Free access to Tomorrow’s Warriors artistic programme has proved crucial in nurturing the nascent talent and early careers of so many of the most exciting UK artists currently tearing up the international jazz scene including Mercury Prize 2023 winners Ezra Collective, Moses Boyd, Nubya Garcia, Shabaka Hutchings and Sons of Kemet, ESKA, Jason Yarde, Denys Baptiste, Robert Mitchell, Soweto Kinch, Shirley Tetteh, Byron Wallen...the list goes on.

A Black-founded and Black-led organisation, Tomorrow’s Warriors offers a pioneering, comprehensive programme of learning and training which champions and supports young Black and female talent and those who come from challenging circumstances that would be a barrier to accessing opportunities to pursue a music career.
