A talented group of young people in Blaenau Gwent have released their very own single, ‘Summer of Love’ by KRU (ft. Kidz R Us), and it’s already hit over 5.5 thousand YouTube views and over 3000 streams on Spotify!
EVI worked in collaboration with music producer Nick Brine (Oasis, Stone Roses) to enable an inspirational group of young people from Kidz R Us in Blaenau Gwent to write, create, record, and promote their very own single – funded by the Welsh Government’s Summer of Fun scheme through CWVYS.
ProMo-Cymru (EVI’s custodians) joined KRU and Nick Brine at their state-of-the-art recording studios in EVI for the recording session of their original single, ‘Summer of Love’. Find out how they got on!
‘It’s been an amazing experience from start to finish. We’ve had so much fun and learnt so much!’

Also at EVI…
ProMo-Cymru also used their digital expertise to deliver free training at EVI as part of our Summer of Fun. Local young people took part in graphic design workshops, accredited video production and TikTok creator sessions throughout the summer.
“I’ve just finished uni and keen to add more skills to my CV as I search for jobs. The trainer explained everything very well, I understood everything! The sessions were really useful.”
“I’ve learnt graphic design skills that will help with my own career path and improve the appearance of the YouTube and TikTok videos I already create!”
