Unsigned artists Ont’ Sofa

First of all, apologies for not posting for the last couple of days – the broadband back at home sucks and was off all day! So, I’m stealing the Universities Internet for a while (:

The next channel I want to bring to you is called ‘Ont’ Sofa’ (for people who aren’t fluent in farmer language, that means ‘On the Sofa’). It was launched in early 2012 by artists Ben Davis and Jason Odle. It helps to bring unsigned artists into the light by having them sing live, on the sofa. Not only do they have bands singing covers of songs, they also encourage them to write their own. A great example of this would be X-Factor runner up Lucy Spraggan. She’s been on the channel numerous times with her famous ‘Tea and Toast’ and ‘Beer Fear’ songs.

They also have different ‘sessions’ which are filmed at two major studios in the UK – the Gibson Studio in London and the Prime Studios in Leeds (which was once used to film the external shots for Emmerdale) which they are also partners with.

I’d recommend this channel to anyone who is interested in music, and who wants to hear fresh music by unknown bands. It’s also a great opportunity for any unsigned acts that want to get noticed. If you would like to play, the link is below.
