Where do you go to find new music?
Chances are you’ll consider one of these places: a record store, any of the music streaming services, your friends or the radio. And they all serve this purpose well. But think about this for a minute: not every up-and-coming artist can afford to record and release their music. And if they do, promoting it and convincing commercial radio stations is another huge expense.
That’s why in Australia there’s a platform that gives unsigned artists a chance to upload their music for free. It’s called triple j Unearthed.
