The Unsigned Guide on QH Sound

There are many thousands of unsigned artists and bands across the UK playing local gigs. However, all face common challenges should they aspire to take their music career to the next level. Whether building up to a national tour, finding a manager or potentially entering a recording agreement, success requires overcoming hurdles.

The Unsigned Guide is a valuable resource that provides musicians with contacts necessary for development in the music industry. Originally published as a print directory, The Unsigned Guide has evolved into a comprehensive online platform. The digital format allows for continuous updates to contact information and industry insights, empowering musicians to further their careers in an ever-changing musical landscape.

Users can easily access contact details for over 50 areas of the industry. With more than 8,500 UK contacts, the guide features gig promoters, venue and festival bookers, artist managers, record label A&R representatives, music publishers, press and PR firms, and booking agents. Each listing provides a contact name, details, and a brief paragraph outlining how that individual or company can support artists.

Rather than searching individual websites for information, the guide streamlines the process in one centralised location. Main sections cover:

  • Artist Managers

  • Creative & Branding

  • Finance, Law & Music Business

  • Live

  • Media

  • Music Publishing

  • Music Training & Careers

  • Record Labels

  • Recording & Production

  • Selling & Distributing Your Music

Users can also search specifically for venues, festivals, producers, rehearsal spaces, distributors, training, radio stations, promoters, equipment rentals, and merchandise providers.

For a low monthly fee of £5.99, with the option to cancel at any time, musicians gain instant online access to this valuable industry network. Given the guide's affordable pricing and wealth of useful resources, it presents a strategic option for any musician serious about furthering their career.
