Sutton Coldfield Studio Raising Funds to Record Compilation Album of Local Bands
The guys behind Sutton Coldfield based community minded recording and rehearsal studio The Band Hub have come up with a brilliant project for promoting local talent and getting them recorded.
Josh and Ciaran are looking to put together a compilation album featuring ten local bands and artists. The project will provide an opportunity for the bands/artists to experience recording in a professional studio without having to pay expensive studio prices.
In fact, the local artists won’t have to pay at all as the objective is to raise the funds for the project through the crowdfunding website Kickstarter.
After the recording of the album Josh and Ciaran are planning on a showcase evening where all of the artists will have the chance to perform live.
For those not familiar with crowdfunding, it is the raising of funds for projects and ventures through the contributions of a large number of people who wish to show their support. As a thank you, those raising the funds give rewards to those who contribute on a sliding scale depending on the amount donated and Kickstarter is one of the biggest of the crowdfunding platforms.
The Band Hub are offering a number of rewards to supporters ranging from:
a ‘…Digital Album and Personalised thank you from The Band Hub (plus ticket for showcase)’;
to a ‘…Digital Album, Personalised thank you from The Band Hub and Each Band, Picture of The Band Hub and Bands holding thank you banner with your name on, A hard copy of the album with your name inside plus free content and media providing an inside access to the recording process also a VIP Studio Visit on one of the days of recording plus a ticket to the showcase.’
The Band Hub guys explain:
“Our aim is to give these bands and artists a platform to share their music and passion. We also want bands to build contacts and relationships with each other to create a bigger music community in our area.
We would love everyone in the community to get behind this as we believe this album will be very special to everyone involved
We need your help to make it happen!”

Based in the grounds of Sutton Coldfield Town FC, The Band Hub was created by local musicians to provide a facility that encompasses two rehearsal studios, one of which is also used for tuition, and a professional recording studio. The aim behind the enterprise is to bring together learning, development, rehearsing and recording into one unique space.
