Post by: ReloadUK on February 14, 2014, 03:25:57 PM
Hi there,

We've just finished recording our track "Dark Matter" with Producer Marco Migliari at Real World Studios. (the track is currently being mixed)  Are there any channels within 6music that accept submissions from unsigned artists?

Many thanks
Paul

Hi Paul, nice one and good luck with it.  My advice would be to get in touch with your local station, most of them, if not all have a BBC Introducing show and stuff will get passed up to 6Music from those.  We've had people ask similar questions in the past and apart from contacting the 6Music presenters maybe on Twitter, local is the best way to start.  Sorry I can't suggest a more direct route but good luck.

Hi Paul,

It sounds great.

Has there been any air time given on BBCLR or other BBC Introducing slots yet?

We would like to cover your journey on the Forum.

Your music sounds wonderful! It deserves to be played as part of BBC Introducing I hope we can soon hear it. Looks promising that BBC Introducing are contacting you and talking about air play. Please let us know when they give you a spot. In meantime will congratulate you about Amazon and hope the BBC do not miss the boat with you! Loads of luck! x

Enjoyed it Paul, thanks for posting.  As you are in the business of posting music around and about, what do you make of the moves by Youtube to edge out indy labels?

As a Youtube partner we've noticed over the last few years how commercial / restrictive the channel has become.  However were always on the look out for new sites. One example is Tunecore. They have some good partnerships with streaming services etc that are just starting to work for us.

There are alternative sites out there with people listening to music :) :)

I'll be making our Kickstarter project go live very soon, just wanted to get an idea of what  BBC forum members have experienced.

It would be very, VERY much appreciated if anyone here on the BBC Radio Forum could support or even help promote our Kickstarter Project ????

Hi all, We're called Reload, a prog rock band. Just thought you might be interested in supporting our
Kickstarter EP project. (launched 21st August 2014 ! )  We may not be Jon Anderson or Genesis but would
certainly "appreciate" any support to get our project off the ground :)

A fun video and song by family and friends for our blog 23littletrees  living in France.

Seed to Greed
https://youtu.be/pOLUkRhLt6M (https://youtu.be/pOLUkRhLt6M)

We garden and we cook!

Passionate about taking food from a tiny seed to a taste explosion.

Feeding our families in the best way we can.

We don’t clock up food miles, we don’t use chemicals and we don’t eat strawberries in December. We do make the most of what we have – land, time, energy, passion…..passion for mud under the finger nails, being outdoors, watching our food grow, cooking and eating it. Fabulous food. Simple food. Fresh from the ground, preserved, bottled, dried – ensuring our plates are delicious and nutritious all year round.
Follow us through the seasons as we make the most of what the ground has to offer. You’ll find recipes and tutorials as we live, love and learn about smallholding in Normandie.
