UB40 have offered their hugely successful App as a platform for new artists to play their music, as well as a chance of winning some studio time. The band have always supported up-and-coming talent, and they see it as more important to do so now than ever, with Covid-19 pandemic, and the music being so affected.
“Musicians and bands are invited to submit their music to UB40”, they said. “For the opportunity to be a guest on UB40’s live UBZoomy Sessions, broadcast on the band’s social networks and the UB40 App on Sunday’s at 7pm. Guests will be hand-picked by the band based on submissions of their music and they will be invited to play their music to the band and fans and discuss it, a gesture the band hope will not only allow new and emerging talent to get their music heard by music fans around the world, but also encourage artists to not give up at a time when thousands are fearing for their jobs in the Arts. They will also pick one artist or band from the sessions and will be inviting them for a recording session, courtesy of UB40.”
Since the release of their debut album, “Signing Off”, UB40 have passionately fought to highlight social injustice in all its forms, breaking down social barriers and keeping closely connected to their fans.
