Taking place every day throughout September, the initiative will give unsigned artists the chance to record songs in a real studio setting. Using the Roundhouse’s EMI live music studio, bands will be encouraged to work closely with guest producers to produce and mix a professional track for free.
Organisers added that selected songs created throughout the month will be compiled for the 30/30 album, which is released by the Roundhouse’s in-house label Roundhouse Records and will be available to buy via iTunes.
The acts chosen will also be given the opportunity to put their questions to a panel of experts from all areas of the industry from artist management and marketing, through to publishing and A&R.
“30/30 is all about developing and nurturing a thriving musical community of emerging artists and putting them together with top flight music industry professionals,” explained Oli Kluczewski, the music programme co-ordinator at the Roundhouse.
“Year on year this event seeks to develop this community through recording and performance opportunities with expert industry advice.
“Through 30/30 and Roundhouse Records, we’re presenting a brand new model for supporting and championing emerging music in the UK, pushing our artists into the digital world with cutting edge technology such as live web streaming, Roundhouse Radio and our in-house production team.”
All of the proceeds from the record sales will go towards creating further opportunities for young people within the arts, the organisation said.
Interested parties are asked to fill in the application form on this website page, which, among other details about the act, asks for a web link to the band or artist’s music. The deadline is July 18th.
