Music Support Programme Success for Rising SYNC Graduate

Music Support Programme Success for Rising SYNC Graduate

One of Nerve Centre’s very own graduates, Jessica Doherty, has been outlined as one of six Northern Irish artists who will receive support from Generator NI’s Talent Development Programme.

Talent Development is a key element of the three year programme at Generator NI. The programme supports the development of a group of exceptional artists, bands, producers and performers each year.

At just seventeen, Jessica already has a number of noteworthy feats under her belt.

From humble beginnings participating in the Nerve Centre’s music development initiatives which led to performing at festivals such as Glasgowbury 2013, Stendhal Festival and the MTV Crashes Industry Event, Jessica has been building momentum with ever-increasing velocity.   

Jessica released her debut single 'Wolves' in June 2014, which, in addition to a performance on The Arts Show, has received airplay on BBC Radio Foyle, and more recently on BBC Radio Ulster’s The Studio Sessions. She is currently working on her debut album.


Selected for Generator NI’s Year 3 Talent Development Programme by a panel of music media tastemakers and industry professionals, and nominated in response to a call for outstanding new Northern Irish creative talent, Jessica’s incredible talent has impressed audiences all over.

Generator NI’s Talent Development Programme will see Jessica receive individual tailored support to encourage her on her musical journey.

She said: 'It’s so exciting to have been announced as one of Generator NI’s Talent Development artists.

I’m looking forward to receiving expert guidance and support to continue working towards my dream.'
