Musician helps Keighley young people
5:44pm Tuesday 19th February 2013 in News
An aspiring musician disappointed by the bad publicity his generation often gets is using his talents to help Keighley’s young people express themselves in a positive way.
Former Oakbank pupil Sean Davies, 19, has been involved in music for much of his life, and is a promising rapper and DJ.
He was horrified at the bad impression the riots of 2011 gave of his generation, and decided he needed to do something about it.
He has set out to teach young people about how to express themselves in a productive way. The Bracken Bank teen started ROLE - Rhymes, Opportunities, Life, Experience, and now holds workshops for schools and community groups.
Today he starts sessions for young people at the Bracken Bank community centre. After school, Sean attended Shipley College, where he obtained qualifications in music production.
