Local Musician Pulls Together Struggling Independent Artists
Written by Chris Harris on March 19, 2020
Northants-based musician Josh Wylie has been putting together online playlists of independent artists and bands to help them still spread their music and gain some revenue during the period of uncertainty.
In the wake of gigs being cancelled across the county, musicians and other freelancer entertainers could be facing massive financial difficulties in the coming months. Josh is in the process of putting together a Spotify playlist with as many independent musicians as possible, so that they can gain some listener revenue if nothing else.
The playlist is called “UK Solo Artists and Bands”, and if you are a musician contact Josh Wylie Music or Joshua Reece Wylie on Facebook to get yourself added to the list.
You can also listen to local music right here on NLive. Shoetown Sounds with Rachel Thomas every Friday evening showcases the best bands from around Northampton, and every listen, like and follow on their social media helps them out.
