This week we’ve been talking a lot about our private investments, joint ventures and how they can benefit you as a user. You access our earlier entry about this here.

We also have a brand new project courtesy of our joint venture, launching exclusively today! Check it out.

We love that the venture has already brought in some massive projects for our users. Not only this, but each project has been different from the last. This diversity means that each opportunity is open to many different users of different creative genres and talents. This is what we are striving towards for our users, so it’s great to see it happening and some of the results coming from the projects.

Top Trending Projects This Week

A&R Project

Astar Studios is offering zero per cent recording loans of up £10,000 to support self-releasing artists and bands or independent managers and labels. Astar Studios is owned by Mercury Prize nominated producer Andy Ross and was runner-up for ‘Best Studio’ at the 2014 Pro Sound Awards.

View the Project.

A&R Project

Paul Huthinson is offering two artists or bands of his choice the chance to have free development and/or recording deals with his company.

Paul Hutchinson Ltd is a progressive production house that focuses on young up and coming bands and artists who would normally not get a chance to work with top professionals to take their music to a high industry level. (Developing artists like major labels used to do when they had big budgets). If you think you’ve got what it takes then now’s the chance to convince him too!

View his project and make a pitch.

Collaboration Project

London based songwriter Mick Lee’s song pitcher has been asked for songs for Carrie Underwood by the President of A&R at Sony Nashville. He’s taking this opportunity to continue his work in the country genre for both Carrie and other singers. He needs a producer and guitar player to help him out.

Get and get pitching.

A&R Project
