If you don’t win a talent show, breaking into the UK’s saturated music industry is near impossible.
Every year, singers and musicians try their luck on shows like the X Factor. A few go on to be successful, but for those who don’t, there’s a sense that the show was their last or only chance.
If you don’t make it through, there aren’t many other alternatives.
This is Robbie Hance.
A few months ago he auditioned for this year’s X Factor.
After getting through his first audition, Robbie decided to walk away from the show during a bad second round. Watching him leave, we knew that he, especially, would struggle to get his music heard any other way.
So we got in touch, and proposed a project to him.
If enough money is raised over the next seven days through Kickstarter, Robbie will be able to record an EP of four tracks, and release a single by Christmas.
