We know that our shops are only as good as our customers and the same rule applies to our website! We would like to give you the opportunity to contribute to the website, whether you are a budding writer, an artist / DJ / band who wants to share their music via rise-music.co.uk, an unsigned band looking for distribution or a promoter looking to get your gig noticed. See below for details on how you can become part of our extended network andbe involved in our passion & love for all things music!
I want to contribute written reviews for the website
We would love people with writing skills to contribute to the website - we are looking for people to contribute album reviews, gig reviews and artist / genre / label reviews. We cannot offer a financial reward for this but we can offer a platform for your writing on a prominent music retail website. If you want to find out more & be added to a weekly mail out regarding work that we are looking for, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with "Reviews" in the subject line.
I am in a band who want to distribute their CD via rise-music.co.uk
In our shops, we always carry a large range of local, unsigned & small labels stock. We feel passionately about giving people an easy route to have their music distributed to the public. To have your stock distributed through the website, the basic terms are :
Email email@example.com with a link to your music and a retail price that you want for the stock. To keep it simple, we offer to pay half the retail price on each unit sold.
Ship the stock to our Bristol shop with a consignment note.
We will guarantee that your album / single / EP is listed on the website with product details (image, label, tracklistings, blurb) that you provide. We will feature the title in an 'Unsigned' campaign on the front page.
Check back with us periodically to see how much stock we have sold. We will pay for stock sold via cheque or bank transfer and you can restock at any time by posting us more stock.
If stock remains unsold after an agreed time frame, we will ship stock back to you at your cost.
I am an artist / DJ / band who wants to share their music through rise-music.co.uk
We can share music via our blog. If you want to try and get your track or video featured, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org with the details and we will consider it. Please note, however, that ultimately the decision made is editorial and we do not guarantee to feature all requests emailed through.
I am a promoter who wants to promote their gig / event
We can feature gigs & events in our calendar. If you want to get your gig or event listed here, please email email@example.com detailing the date, time, venue, who is playing, a promotional image & a short preview. If you want to offer any incentives to feature the show more prominently such as free tickets to give away in a competition then please detail this and we can discuss it further. We will give priority to events from the areas that our shops operate in Bristol, Cheltenham & Coventry but will consider events from all over the country if they fit with our core product offer.
