Small Pond are excited to announce that our EMERGING project is back! It will give eight talented young acts (aged 16-25) in Brighton and the South of England the opportunity to rehearse, record and release their music via Small Pond’s studio, label and PR set-up.
The scheme, which has been awarded funding from Arts Council England, focuses on giving promising artists the opportunity to experience all stages in the production and promotion of a record. The process will culminate in the pressing and distribution of a compilation album on 12-inch vinyl, and digital platforms, for a Spring 2020 release. The record will feature a track from each of the acts selected.
Along with a tailor-made marketing and PR campaign for the release, musicians will receive support and industry guidance in the form of workshops, pre-production meetings and mentoring throughout the process. Each act will receive an allocation of the finished vinyl to sell as merchandise and get them on the way to earning an income from their music.
