I don’t think good music has be obscure. That is why I encourage the younger readers/musicians of this blog to enter a contest by the BBC World Service. The BBC is looking for the World’s Best Young Band. Entrants have to be aged 18 or under, unsigned with original music. Any style, any language. From anywhere in the world. Once the entrants have been shortlisted by global music industry experts we they be bringing together a panel of star judges. And they will choose The World’s Best Young Band from 6 finalists recorded live at the world famous BBC Maida Vale studios.The project is called ‘The Next Big Thing’ and the websites are here and here. And, if you enter, let me know. I may be able to feature your music on this website. Get your music heard.
