Demerara Records have now set up a Bandcamp account to give fans a further choice about how they buy our music. The label has not used Bandcamp as a resource previously as Tunecore already provide global distribution but consultation with others in the independent sector has convinced label boss and composer Neil March to change the label’s policy. Neil told DemeraraRecords.com “There is clearly a culture that has emerged around Bandcamp as a spiritual home of independent music. I am now convinced there is a benefit for Demerara Records and its artists in tapping into this. So for the foreseeable future all our releases will be available on Bandcamp too.”
British Composer and Demerara Records artist Neil Marchhas a new video on YouTube. Released as Neil March & The Music of Sound it is a reworking of the track Mountain Ash Sunrise which had previously been on Neil’s Soundcloud page. You can see the video here.

We recommend listening to the whole 60 minute show as there are plenty of great tracks to enjoy here.
