Accelerator Deal

Over the next six months we’re committed to developing six music artists at the infancy of their careers.

With funding from PRS for Music Foundation, Urban Development can offer artists support with recording, marketing and distribution costs to help get their career off the ground. We will work with them to develop a 6-month action plan tailored to their individual needs and provide mentoring support to achieve their personal goals.
We will support artists with studio time, A&R, grassroots and digital PR along with guidance with live performances. We will offer access to industry contacts including co-writers and producers, mixing, mastering and digital distribution. 
What can be funded?
· Recording – new album, EP, single, producer, engineer, mixer fees, studio hire, session musician fees, etc.
· Live Shows – An opportunity to perform at Urban Development events.
· Marketing and promotions – online PR, radio plugger, digital marketing, music videos, merchandise production, etc.
The deadline for the Accelerator Deal has past and we now have received all 2016's applicants. We will be contacting successful artists from the start of August 2016. 
If you need any further information please contact our A&R coordinator Kofi.
