The latest initiative to come out from the Development Suite/Progression Session crew is a new competition called Making Waves, which we think is an incredible opportunity for any Island band.
The deal is pretty straightforward and very attractive.
All you have to do is put yourselves forward for Making Waves and you could end up with a day of recording in the studio with Jackson Analogue, The Chancers and Ryde Theatre’s producers and engineers. For those without normal access to studios, this is a great way to prepare a demo for Bestival or IW Festival.
There are two dates in January (10th and 24th) and two more in February (14th and 28th) where you’ll get a chance to play live at The Venue.
From your performance at that gig, which will be recorded, you choose your favourite two tracks, which will then be played on the airwaves of four radio stations; IW Radio, Original 106fm, South Live and Express fm.
All pretty straightforward so far and it stays that way.
If you’re a winner or a runner up, you’re guaranteed a headline slot at the Development Suite (soon to return to The Liquid Lounge monthly on Friday nights) and will also open the next season of Progression Sessions at Ryde Theatre.
The band/artist who sell the most tickets, coupled with the judges votes will win themselves a full day of recording with musical heroes Jackson Analogue, The Chancers and those very knowledgeable producers and engineers at Ryde Theatre.
This is a fantastic opportunity for any band or musician on the Island to get their music heard and broaden their fan base.
