The Fopp Award for New Music will give up-and-coming acts a fantastic opportunity to get their material recorded, mixed, edited and mastered at a professional recording studio for free, courtesy of PRSF. Clear Sound & Vision will then handle post-mastering and manufacturing of the CDs, working closely with the bands to design insert artwork and produce a high-level finished product. The final product will be distributed through Fopp’s chain of stores nationwide, and the bands will also be given the opportunity to play at a showcase event.
The scheme is open to:
- bands or groups of any genre which perform their own original material
- songwriters (who have someone else/a group to perform their songs)
Note that the deadline is quite soon – Friday 25th May.
Last year four acts from the South East were selected. You can read about them here.
