New Music Site

A friend in the UK actually left his high-paying job to pursue his interest in setting up his own band. Recently I got in touch with him again and found out that he was actually doing really well, thanks to tourdates.Co.UK, an unsigned chart with free music downloads. It’s a new music website that aims to provide exposure for new unsigned bands and provides free downloads of their music for those who are interested. It has encouraged many young, budding musicians to pursue what they love best and has revolutionized the music scene by giving these new bands an avenue to be heard. .He sent me a press release of the site listed below:

tourdates.Co.UK, Britains fastest growing new music website, has launched a chart for unsigned bands.

The site allows new bands to upload promotional tracks, announce gig dates and create profiles to promote themselves alongside major artists such as the Artic Monkeys and The Twang.

Tourdates Jarrod Robinson says, there are some fantastic unsigned bands in the UK and we wanted them to know how much our community likes their music, an unsigned chart seemed the perfect answer.

Chart results are announced on the site at 19:00 every sunday, the sametime as the No1 single of the week is announced on BBC's radio 1.

It was very impressive to read about what these sites are doing for these young and upcoming musicians. It’ll be good it we had something similar here.
