Yes it’s that time of year again. Time for another free studio time competition but this year we are upping the ante big time. Again we’ll be offering the prize for a day in the studio, but also another day of mixing and production so effectively double the amount of time spent recording. The competition will again be in conjunction with Flick OF The Magazine but this year we teaming up with a very charitable cause which is Musicians Against Homelessness and The Unsigned Guide.
A few weeks ago whilst attending the Manchester Creative Collective network night in Manchester Andy White from MAH gave a talk about what they do which is effectively putting on gigs and all the proceeds go to Crisis to help the homelessness. For me homelessness is a massive problem, especially in Manchester, where on a bad day I can easily pass 20 homeless people on my 5 minute walk from Piccadilly Station to the Northern Quarter studio. It was inspirational to hear what MAH were doing so we approached them to see if this years competition could be used to raise awareness of what they do.
So this years competition now has the backing of MAH and is a monster for any aspiring band.
