Canterbury-based start-up QH Sound has launched an exciting endeavour with its ‘Unsigned Collection’ compilation CDs, designed to bring to the fore the hidden musical talents across the UK. The series kicks off with ‘Unsigned Collection Vol.1’, which will highlight artists and bands from Kent, the company’s home region.
Quadri, the founder of QH Sound and a proud alum of Canterbury Christ Church University who also works at HMV, is driven by his passion for discovering and supporting new music acts. QH Sound has been instrumental in helping numerous artists broaden their reach, secure radio slots, organise live shows, and achieve press coverage. The ‘Unsigned Collection’ series is envisioned as a launchpad for budding musicians to advance their careers.
Highlighting the purpose behind the initiative, Quadri remarked, “There are many incredible artists that often go undiscovered in this crowded industry. Unsigned Collection will shine a light on the most promising talents. This is a unique opportunity for musicians to stand out and lay the foundation for longevity.”
The first volume of ‘Unsigned Collection’ is set to include 15-20 tracks from Kentish artists and bands, with plans for the compilation to be played in HMV stores across the county and distributed to radio stations, music bloggers, and journalists keen on discovering fresh talent.
QH Sound is on the lookout for Kent-based artists from any musical genre with a repertoire of at least five high-quality original tracks. Submissions are free of charge. Artists chosen for the compilation will enjoy promotional support across various platforms, including press, music blogs, and live performances, all the while maintaining complete control and rights over their work.
Quadri shared his vision for the project, “With Unsigned Collection and other initiatives, we aim to nurture talent, bring musicians together, and strengthen the local music scene.” He added, “This is about creating opportunities and helping artists reach new milestones.”
