Yesterday saw the launch of a new national Radio service on Digital frequency [DAB] that shall give a voice to new music artists in a way that they have never previously been offered. Amazing Radio shall only play music by unsigned artists, playing some of the 15,000 tracks that have been uploaded on to the Amazing music website [all of which are downloadable, with 70% of revenue going directly to the artist]. Trialling for six months, the self styled ‘democratic radio station’ is giving voice to new talent, both unsigned artists and presenters, and giving them a platform to display their talents to a nationwide audience. With the audience given the opportunity to assist in the playlist on the station, it’s great to hear of a nationally broadcasted media outlet promoting unsigned, independent young talent, something the UK music industry has long yearned for.
The image above is of Master Shortie, just one of the many unsigned music artists that shall benefit from the exposure of Amazing Radio.
