The project

Actual Music are excited to share details of a funded pilot project that seeks to engage and develop eight high-potential musical artists from across Lancashire.

The aim of this project is to develop a professional portfolio of audio & visual assets and upskill artists in commercialising their practice through promotion and live performance. 

What's included

We are looking for expressions of interest for original artists who will participate in an artist development programme with the following outcomes:

1 x single recorded & mixed at our studio, development of EPK, distribution & marketing

1 x live lounge style video

1 x live showcase set at The Grand venue in Clitheroe in April 2024

1 x live multi-cam video from the showcase performance

Delivered workshops from industry professionals on promotion and revenue streams

As part of the project, participants will have the opportunity to network and collaborate with each other creatively, as well as work with facilitators to deliver workshops to young people in the region.

Who's it for

Solo artists, duos or bands based in Lancashire (particularly Blackburn, Darwen, Burnley, Pendle, Hyndburn, Preston and Blackpool).

Members aged 14 – 35

Artists should perform their own original music

Artists at any stage of their career journey as long as they are not signed to a record label (artists can be published or have booking agents and managers)

All artists regardless of cultural background, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation and disability status

The programme will be completely free to access for all participants who are selected through the application process.
