Scottish acts are being invited to perform at a leading music industry event.

The Resonate Music Industry Conference returns for its third year at Glasgow’s Barras Art and Design on Thursday November 14th.

The one-day event will consist of daytime panel discussions, presentations, workshops, and one-to-one advice sessions at Glasgow’s Barras Art and Design, followed by a series of live showcases.

And for the first time, Resonate is encouraging artists from around the country to take part.

Prospective acts, who must be aged over 14 years and have at least one member of the band residing in Scotland, simply submit a single track along with a biography and detail why performing at the event would benefit their career.

An independent judging panel will then select six winning acts to perform.

In previous years, acts such as Declan Welsh & The Decadent West, Carla J. Easton and Luna The Professor have performed at Resonate, in front of industry figures.

Singer-songwriter Kate Kyle, who also previously appeared at Resonate, said: “Performing at Resonate Live 2018 was an amazing experience.

“The opportunity to showcase my own songwriting in front of an audience that included a long list of individuals, working and promoting the finest of the UK music industry – you don’t get that kind of platform every day.”

Panelists this year include Kobi Onyane, Dame Evelyn Glennie and Jim Duguid, while there will be advice sessions and workshops from the likes of Creative Scotland and Stina Tweeddale out of Honeyblood.
