Two hotly tipped young Demerara Records artists will play Vanishing Point on 6th June. Cholly and our newest signing Josie will both appear at the live-streamed event taking place at the Ivy House in Peckham.
In the meantime don’t forget about our electronic ambient and experimental special Vanishing Point on 2nd May at the Ivy House. We are there on the first Thursday of every month so come and hang out in the otherworldly Twin Peaks Roadhouse atmosphere of London’s most beautiful venue. Get tickets here.
The gig will also be live streamed on the internet by bndr Music. Vanishing Point is becoming one of the key events in the live music calendar in South East London. We are here on the first Thursday of every month. Come and hang out and if you are a band or artist talk to us about whether you might be right for us to put on at a future gig.
Demerara Records’ Neil Marchis releasing his first solo album in four and a half years. Three Short Stories follows a string of EPs and singles since 2014’s Urban Art Music. Look out for more news soon. The album will be available as a download-only pre-release exclusively at our Bandcamp page until it goes on full release in mid-May 2019.
Neil March‘s book The Independent Sector (2019) is now available in Paperback from Amazon. The book is an easy-to-read guide to all you need to know about operating within the independent music industry.
The book takes you through release & distribution; publishing; royalties; management; agents; live music; radio promo; music press; streaming & playlists; contracts; social media & lots more.
Demerara Records head and composer-artist Neil March‘s new book The Independent Music Sector (2019) is available for Kindle or as a PDF. A paperback version will be available from Amazon shortly. Find out how this book can help you plan and build your career and activities within independent music here.
The e-version retails at £8.98. The paperback version costs £10.
The book is aimed at a wide spectrum of people operating in or aspiring to operate in the independent music sector including artists and bands; labels; publishers; managers; agents; promoters; venues; internet and community radio; online media; bloggers and various others. The low price represents Neil’s ethos which is ardently opposed to exploiting others’ desire for success by charging extortionate amounts. Hopefully the book will prove useful to those who do decide to buy it. We will announce the publication of the paperback version as soon as it is available too.
We are very excited to announce that Vanishing Point will move from being every other month to the first Thursday of every month at the beautiful Ivy House in Nunhead from 4th April 2019.
Demerara Records head & composer Neil March explained: ‘It is still our intention to alternate between Vanishing Point and Vanishing Point Solo but the difference is that, from April, all the gigs will be at the Ivy House where the facilities are so good and our relationship with the venue is first class. In fairness our relationship with the Cafe of Good Hope is great too but there are practical reasons why it is not ideal for what we are trying to do, particularly as a long term project’.
The first gig in the new monthly series will be the one featuring Luvia, Yvonne Hercules and Environmental Sound Foundation. Details can be found here.
