‘We’re saving live music’ – Introducing: GigOwl
Grown out of a need for innovative solutions to problems in the live music and events sector, and to push independent musicians further in the UK, GigOwl was formed in early 2013 by Anthony Bliss and Chris Mead.
GigOwl is an ethical community booking service that connects musicians with studios, promoters and event organisers. At their core the GigOwl team want to make things simpler for musicians and venues.
Through streamlined gig requests, guided marketing support and giving organisers and musicians the tools needed to promote their gigs, GigOwl aims to develop a platform that empowers musicians, promoters and fans within the world of live music.
In their own words: “Great new talent exists, it should be experienced, and we want to help make that happen a lot more.”
And they’ve already started! GigOwl are offering an up and coming; folk, indie or alternative act the chance to play the final day of Sheffield’s inner-city music festival Tramlines on the 21st July, you can apply by simply clicking here – Apply For Tramlines Festival.
They also want to hear from YOU, independent musicians. Share the experiences you’ve had with venues, promoters and other musicians, tell them how you think gigging needs to be improved, so that GigOwl can adapt to make itself the best platform it can be for you; the musician. You can either drop Anthony and Chris an email OR Tweet them OR message them on Facebook. They’re really friendly guys, so do get in touch.
