Are you a new unsigned musician/band/singer/songwriter who is looking for their big break? You looking for advice that will steer you in the right direction? Then the brand new ‘Unsigned Muso Magazine’ is what you need!
UM is a free bi-monthly print publication written by music professionals offering advice to ‘musos’ throughout the UK and tips on how to make the best of social media with the its first issue set to be launched to thousands of eager musicians at music competitions across the UK in the coming months. The debut issue includes an interview with Aled from Kids in Glass Houses and an exclusive article written by Barney Boom from dance/rock crossover act, Sonic Boom Six.
UM plan to work closely with more signed bands and artists in the future, stripping away the ‘fame’ barriers and bridging the gap between musicians at the top and the unsigned musos that look to them for inspiration. The plan is to work closely alongside music competitions across the UK and UM bosses took the decision to launch the first issue at this years Live and Unsigned finals due to its popularity. The contest attracts more than 40,000 entries per year from aspiring musicians and therefore distributing the free magazine here places the publication directly into the hands of the target readership.
Editor of UM, Jennifer Le Roux, said: “It is great to be part of such an inspiring project. Having struggled with my own band several years ago and lacking the support we needed, UM is a great way to get some much needed advice and tips to musicians or singers seeking direction and focus.”
Director of UM, Harry Costings, said: “In addition to utilising unsigned competitions to get the magazine out there, we also plan to secure key distribution points with a selection of music shops in each city across the UK.”
