We’ve just helped launch a unique music industry project. The Source is a nationwide search for new talent, operating cross-channel and spearheaded by a TV show on Channel M.

The Source has been established as the altruistic, co-operative alternative to programmes like the X Factor. Founders Iain May and Ben Martin believe it’s high time that creative control was wrested away from record company executives and given back to artists.

We’ve been asked to help them with their online presence, developing an initial website which will then be added to as the initiative grows. www.bethesource.tv is a call to action for artists of any genre and is live now. The first TV show will hit the air on 13 September on Channel M, Freeview Channel 200.
