The Scottish Music Industry Directory is an ambitious project that has been started by Yvonne McLellan. Yvonne currently works at Island Records as the Regional A&R Scout for Scotland and is also a lecturer at Ayr College in the Music Department.
It is aimed at those working within Scottish music but also for artists, students or anyone that may have questions or need contacts. All too often many of us working in music within Scotland are asked “Where can I find a manager for my band?” or “Who can I contact for a gig up north?”. It has been realised that even though music industry directories exist in the UK there was a huge gap for a more localised directory in Scotland that includes ‘everyone’, from the guy running gigs in his village to larger companies.
This blog will hopefully add links to interesting articles, give update information on submissions for festivals and other useful bits and bobs.
The directory will be built upon over the next few months using new technologies to visualise all the information. If you would like to be added to the directory or share with others you know click here.
