Are you a member of a local band aiming to make the big time? Are you a solo singer who is hoping for a big future in the music industry?

If the answer is yes, then the ‘Tiser is launching a new initiative that could give you the exposure and platform you need.

For we want you to submit video footage of you in action, either at a gig, in the recording studio or even during rehearsals at home.

In turn we will post it here on our website, complete with a story about the band or musician.

We will also tweet links to the article and footage and post it on our Facebook page — opening up your talent to our thousands of readers, followers and friends.

All you have to do is grab between 30 seconds and a minute’s worth of footage and send it in to us, in an MP4 format.

Include a few details about yourself or the band, along with names, addresses and a telephone number, and we will be in touch.

Use the contact details below to make sure you take advantage of this excellent chance.

‘Tiser editor Martin Hutton said: “We know for a fact that Ilkeston and the surrounding area is a hotbed for musical talent.

“Whether you’re a band who are already well-known locally, a talented singer still at school or a producer who knows of someone with a special talent, we want to hear from you.”

So what are you waiting for? Email news@ilkestonadvertiser.co.uk with your footage.
