BBC INTRODUCING will take four artists to this year's A&R WORLDWIDE's MUSEXPO event, held MAY 1st-4th in LOS ANGELES. There the acts will have the opportunity to perform to some of the music industry's biggest names.
The four artists are urban singer-songwriter LUKE BINGHAM, alternative-acoustic artist LUKE FENLON and electro-pop outfits FRIENDS ELECTRIC and MAN WITHOUT COUNTRY. The journey these artists experience will be captured for a special documentary, which will be broadcast on BBC RADIO 1 later this year.
The four artists were selected via a panel that consisted of CBS RADIO VP Programing and KROQ PD KEVIN WEATHERLY, ATLANTIC RECORDS GROUP Chairman/CEO CRAIG KALLMAN, EA GAMES Worldwide Head of Music & Marketing STEVE SCHNUR, and the ATOM FACTORY Chair./CEO TROY CARTER.
"A&R WORLDWIDE is an independent new music discovery and development platform and is very excited to have BBC Introducing present some of the UK's most promising new 'export ready' talent at this year's MUSEXPO LOS ANGELES," A&R Worldwide Head SAT BISLA said. "MUSEXPO brings together the global music community, who will undoubtedly be inspired by the plethora of great new talent -- we anticipate some great outcomes for these British acts."
