Musicians in Southampton invited to be part of Sounds of Southampton Vol 3

SoCo Music’s New Music Development Unit, in partnership with SO Movement, invites musicians in Southampton to apply by the end of the month to be part of Sounds of Southampton Vol 3.

Building on the success of two previous albums, Sounds of Southampton Vol 1 and Vol 2, SoCo Music Project will once again be creating an album to showcase and  celebrate the musical talent in the city,

Singles will be released throughout the summer with an album launch in the autumn.

Artists interested in making any kind of music can apply to be part of this, whatever their level, or style.

Support packages can include recording at SoCo’s purpose built studios, mentoring and content creation. Some artists will then be selected to receive further, ongoing support.

Southampton singer Amy da Silva (pictured top) appeared on both albums and went on to win a prestigious national music award  – the Youth Music Original Track Award, sponsored by TikTok, with her track Think Twice.

Matt Salvage, CEO of SoCo Music said: “We can’t wait to get started on Sounds of Southampton Volume 3 this year, the past two albums have brought together over 40 artists from the city and both albums have charted. This time around we’re opening it up to wider genres so we can really show the talent in Southampton, we’d encourage bands and solo artists to submit tracks – it’s so much more than an album, it’s a rich package of support for musicians to help them reach the next stage in their careers.”

To be considered for this incredible opportunity, artists need to send one track (which can be at demo stage) to with their artist name and track title in the email subject and the filename OR send a link to an existing, unreleased track by May 31 using the form here. Successful artists will be contacted by the end of June.
