We’ve been keeping busy since the end of The Underdog 2016, and I’m delighted to announce that we’ll be working closely with Synthetica again over the next year to deliver The Underdog 2017, bigger and better than ever before! We’re already hard at work on sponsorship, venues and prizes, and it’s looking pretty exciting. Here’s what else we’ve been up to…
We’ve been working on a variety of album reviews which will be published very soon. It’s a real privilege to get to hear some amazing material from local bands before it’s out for general release. I’ve also particularly enjoyed having an excuse to shut myself away and really concentrate on just listening to music and writing – my favourite things to do! Reviews are a great way to get coverage of your new releases, so if you’ve got an upcoming release, get in touch to see how one of our writers could help you.
We’ve also been to some great networking and training events hosted by the Bristol Music Industry Network recently – if you’re not a member yet, sort it out! Just £10 a year gets you access to a wealth of people, resources and services. And we’re now offering up to 20% off Shuffl’s services to members – check out their business services page for more details.
Lastly, we’ve been working on some new services and will soon be launching a suite of small, fixed-price packages – for those of you who already know exactly what you want and only want one service! The details are yet to be completely ironed out, but the packages we’re looking at include website health checks, album reviews, and launch gig press releases. Keep an eye on our services page to find out more.
That’s all for now – look out for some new releases over the next few weeks!
