Z-arts Music Label – Release your music through us!

Are you an unsigned, emerging artist or group living in Manchester? Have you got finished music but want some assistance getting your music to the next stage?

We want to support 6 young musicians to release their music independently – you keep 100% of the rights and royalties!

  • Their song released on all major platforms including spotify, itunes etc

  • A personal release plan

  • Access to our links with radio/press and music industry professionals

Who can apply?
