As we all know, technology has a massive impact on the way we write, record and market our music. Guitars can be plugged into audio interfaces to record straight to your computer, backing tracks can be sequenced using software – making a demo has never been easier.
Once you've recorded your demo, social networking websites allow bands, artists and producers to promote their music and then it's just a matter of uploading, sitting back and waiting for the bookings and record deals to come in... Or is it? Getting your music 'out there' is easy as it's ever been, however a down side from social networking websites means that your potential fanbase can be spammed by every wannabe Justin Beiber, Rick Astley and Jedward tribute out there before your music even gets a look in.
At PMT we're looking to promote up-and-coming and even totally unheard of talent. Don't worry though we're not starting up our own celebrity-panel-judged talent show! To give you a platform to get heard we are playing selected artists and tracks throughout our stores in Birmingham, Bristol, Cambridge, Leeds, Manchester, Northampton, Norwich, Oxford, Romford and Southend!
If your an unsigned artist, band, singer, or producer and you would like to get involved and get your music heard by a massive customer base who love new music, send us your music to our soundcloud dropbox. We will also be supporting some of our favourite submissions with exposure on our blog, via Twitter and Facebook too so make sure subscribe, follow and like to keep up to date!
