Showcase:LIVE are live music events which have established themselves as one of the best places to find great new artists.
Showcase Live has been an integral starting point for the careers of some of pops biggest names including Lawson, JLS and Jessie J. Founded in London in 2007, the night has gone from strength to strength and five years on, we are extending our talent search and platform to cities nationwide.
We aim to bring carefully selected unsigned and rising artists from around the UK to the attention of the music industry. Director George Eason explains, “It’s more than just a gig. A lot of thought and consideration goes into the booking of each artist – the quality control we have has always been tight.”
“We’re always expanding, aiming for this to be the ultimate performance and promotion platform for new singers, bands and musicians and for people within the industry to recognise that Showcase Live is the best place in the UK to find new music.”
We always have a great turn out of industry leaders and artists alike. Fearne Cotton, Conor Maynard, Pixie Lott, Mica Paris, Lemar, Professor Green, Loveable Rogues, Dionne Bromfield, Bluey Robinson, JLS and members from Sugababes, The Saturdays, Parade, Twenty Twenty, Westlife and The Wanted have all been spotted in the audience.
Featured acts have also gone on to sign with Epic, Polydor, Global Talent, Columbia, Atlantic, Deconstruction, Geffen, Xenomania, Fascination, Island, Jive and Warner Brothers.
