The Things They Say!

Hudson Music: Lance's "Bebop Spoken Here" is one of the heaviest and most influential jazz blogs in the UK.

Rupert Burley (Dynamic Agency): "BSH just goes from strength to strength".

COVID-19

In the current climate we are doing our best to keep everyone up to date. All gigs, as we all know, are off.

However, good old YouTube has plenty to offer both old and new to help us survive whilst housebound. Plus now is a good time to stock up on your CDs.

Also, keep an eye out for live streaming sessions.

Alternatively, you could do as they do in Italy and sing from your balcony.

Today

As we all know there are no live gigs taking place in the immediate future. However, any links to jazz streaming that are deemed suitable - i.e. with a professional approach - will be considered for posting.

Jazz North’s northern line

(Press release)
Since its launch in 2013, Jazz North’s northern line has supported 67 jazz artists and ensembles from across the north with over 700 gigs. This month, applications open for Round Seven of the scheme giving more artists the chance to develop their profession.

Jazz North’s northern line is the organisation’s flagship programme that supports jazz artists through subsidised touring, mentoring and industry support. Successful applicants can expect 12 subsidised gig performances at festivals and in venues, minimising financial risk through guaranteed payments and a minimum fee rate. An electronic press kit of the artists will be produced to send to promoters, following a photo shoot and marketing insight from Jazz North. There will be an opportunity to perform at Jazz North’s northern line showcase day at Lancaster Jazz Festival in September 2019 in front of national and international jazz promoters where a video showreel will be filmed for promotional purposes. One to one mentoring with Jazz North is also on offer to identify individual areas of support.

Jazz North are looking for artists from across the north to apply. “We want to represent the diversity and quality of talent living and working in the North of England,” explains Jazz North’s northern line Project Manager Lucy Woolley“We believe it is important that audiences and promoters have access to a wider cultural offer and we expect Jazz North’s northern line to present a varied roster of artists that is reflective of the northern jazz scene.

Artists wishing to apply must be at a gig ready standard, with 18 months of professional experience and no longer in full-time education. There are no musical barriers and no age barriers, we only ask that artists be ready to commit time to make the most of being on the scheme.”


Applications are now open and will stay open until the end of January, with successful applicants announced in April 2019. To apply please go
