Tomorrow’s Warriors is a pioneering talent development organisation, creative producer, learning and training provider, charity and consultancy specialising in jazz. Founded in 1991 by The Queen’s Medal for Music recipient Gary Crosby OBE and Janine Irons MBE, Tomorrow’s Warriors supports aspiring artists from diverse backgrounds to discover their magic and achieve creative ambitions. Over 30 years, through development, outreach and recruitment, the organisation has directly impacted over 10,000 young people aged 11-25 outside of traditional formal education. Our pioneering Talent Development Programme primarily supports the early careers of young artists from black and ethnically diverse backgrounds, female musicians and those facing socio-economic barriers to pursuing a career in the music industry. Tomorrow’s Warriors is pivotal in elevating UK jazz, valued by its alumni and respected by funding partners for the impact delivered through its pipeline for outstanding, diverse talent.
In 2021, we celebrated our 30-year legacy and future focus on the next generation of UK jazz talent by reopening our live events programme of concerts, tours and outreach; announcing exciting new partnerships; and laying firm foundations for Tomorrow’s Warriors to grow and thrive for the next 30 years. We’re looking for passionate, committed people to join us and be part of a diverse, innovative, ambitious organisation that is determined to effect positive, lasting change in jazz and the wider music industry.
