The Unsigned Guide, the must-have source of music industry contacts, information and advice for any aspiring artist, band, producer or musician, has been hand-picking the best new music by their members over the past 12 months via their monthly Spotlight blog and sending the selected tracks onto an exclusive group of influential music industry professionals to cast their ears over.

To celebrate a year’s worth of wonderful tracks, The Unsigned Guide have created a shortlist of the best 10 tracks they’ve received and have recruited a team of music industry judges to pick out the songs they feel are the cream of the crop. On the judging panel will be experts from all corners of the music business including Domino Records, Club Fandango, Amazing Radio, This Is Fake DIY, Decca Records, Tri-Tone Publishing, Music Ally, Division PR, plus regional BBC Introducing shows.

The judges will not only select their favourite 3 songs of the 10, but also provide feedback on those tracks with the aim of propelling the artists onto further success and wider recognition.

Started in July 2012, Spotlight was created by The Unsigned Guide to applaud and draw attention to some of the best new music around from emerging artists. Editor, Louise Dodgson explains: “We know that there’s some really spectacular, top quality music out there, a lot of it being produced right under our noses by our very own members. It is difficult for independent artists & bands to be heard amongst the masses of music makers out there, so this is our way to do just that and show artists that they aren’t being ignored; music industry people are listening to & enjoying their music.”

Many of the bands and artists featured on the Spotlight blog during the past year have gone onto accomplish some impressive achievements since; playing at major festivals, receiving airplay on national radio stations, not to mention securing the expert services of PR companies, record labels and other music professionals. Hopefully for those on the 2012-2013 shortlist, even more exciting developments will be on the agenda.

The judge’s picks will be made public on The Unsigned Guide website in early July. The Spotlight shortlist includes Spectral Park, Harry David, Sea Pinks, Blessa, Lumi, Masters In France, Shy Nature, The Dancers, We’re No Heroes and Ed Zealous.
