THE Highland Label is putting the call out for artists to submit music as the label looks to grow its roster of acts.

The Inverness-based label that was set up in early 2020 by music promoter Steve Robertson has recognised the growth in streaming with the future of live music uncertain and is seeking to provide a platform for artists to grow their fan base through radio and online marketing.

To date the label has released a single with Inverness singer-songwriter Paul John Maciver who is currently working on his debut album – and has also provided PR for artists such as Patrick Farrell, Lucid Liars and Damaged Goodz among others.

Steve explains the label’s model: “We engage artists through a profit share with money due going direct to the artists via our distribution company and the artists retain full rights to their music at all times.

“It is our hope that the label can kickstart and grow some careers here in the Highlands. However, we are also talking to other acts outside the Highlands,” continues Steve.

For anyone curious about genres the label might be interested in, the answer is – many.

“I’ve been researching what is out there.

“As a promoter I’ve always been a great believer in promoting talent, no matter the genre, so I’d like to take the same approach on the label.

“I’ve heard from a Gaelic rapper, a heavy metal band, an Americana singer and an electronic producer already!”

Artists are invited to send a Soundcloud or YouTube link to: highlandlabel@gmail.com. For more info check out: www.facebook.com/highlandlabel
