Mcculloch Leads Search For New Artists

ECHO + THE BUNNYMEN singer IAN MCCULLOCH is leading the hunt to find the best up-and-coming musicians in the UK. The musician joins Island Records Managing Director MARC MAROT, BBC Radio 2 contributor PAUL SEXTON and award-winning producers BACON + QUARMBY in the search for new artists in the UK, offering undiscovered talent the chance to release their own material. Entrants are asked to post their songs online with a brief biography, from which six finalists will be chosen by the judges panel led by the OCEAN RAIN star to perform at a private London gig with an exclusive audience. The overall winner will record their track with Bacon + Quarmby, which will then be released as a download single. MCCulloch says, "I'm really excited about being involved in this. I know myself how difficult the music industry can be to break into, especially if you sound or look a bit different to everyone else. "But we need to encourage diversity in music, and campaigns like this are exactly the sort of thing that could uncover the next big thing in the music world."
