From october to november semester four Sound Station artists will benefit from:

-one-to-one mentoring from experienced industry professionals
-a studio workshop to hone recording and songwriting skills
-an artist masterclass from becky hawley of stealing sheep
-an industry seminar with a panel of music business experts
-exclusive live opportunities and additional workshops, mentoring and advice
-a merseyrail pass valid across the network

the semester closes with a day-long festival at liverpool central station at which all the musicians will play a short set.


previous artists to take part in the programme include eyesore & the jinx, beija flo, breezy, yank scally and salt the snail. representatives from warner music, sound city, mute records and domino records have all taken part in industry seminars and venues from the philharmonic to the m&s bank arena have played host to development sessions.

all artists will be notified at the end of september.
