Local guitarist and producer Matt Bishop & chart topping songwriter and artist manager Charlotte Elizabeth are set to launch their record label with an Official Launch Party on Saturday 10th February.
‘Inspire Records’ was formed at the end of September 2017 but the duo have been busy hosting music nights over the city and developing the music career of local artists that they have had to fit their launch into their schedules.
The stellar line up of artists who are set to perform only goes to show how well respected the duo are within the music scene. They have managed to secure local artists including Simon Clewlow, 6 towns radio awards ‘Best Local Act’ nominees Nixon Tate & The Honey Club, rock and pop band Live Wires who regularly perform over the UK at corporate events, Honey Ryder who have received BBC Radio 2 support and TV coverage (Matt is the guitarist in both previous mentioned bands) and Nottingham based country rock band, Angels With Dirty Faces who are taking the country world by storm.
Charlotte said “We are so excited to be able to officially launch our Record Label with a party showcasing exactly what we are all about – amazing music and amazing artists! We have both worked in the music industry for many years and have seen how difficult it can be to progress. We started doing Artist Management to provide the artists with opportunities that they were otherwise struggling to gain. The natural progression to this was to launch a record label. As an independent songwriter, I noticed the gap in the market when I was trying to launch my EP earlier this year. If you are unknown, it is extremely difficult to get support launching your music. I did all of my own promotion, arranged my own radio tour and charted it successfully. However, I was very lucky because I had the contacts. These days, new and emerging artists don’t have these contacts or know where to look and that is where we wanted to step in. We are artists working for artists and are delighted to say we have our own independent record label.”
The event is being held at Fulford Village Hall, Staffordshire, ST11 9QT with doors opening at 7pm.
