Musicians in the North East are being given a unique opportunity to take part in a week-long music residency courtesy of a partnership between Tees Music Alliance and Sage Gateshead.

The Green House music residency will take place between Monday 30th October-Saturday 4th November at Tees Music Alliance’s Green Dragon Studios in Stockton.

As part of the residency, artists will have access to professional rehearsal and recording facilities, advice from industry experts, including TMA’s in-house gurus David Saunders and Chris Cobain among others, a photoshoot from local photographer Katy Gettings and an appearance at a live show to take place at the Georgian Theatre on Saturday 4th November, with a full audio and visual recording of the performance.

The residency will provide artists with much-needed time and space to work on their craft, and aims to level the playing field by offering facilities that artists, especially during the cost of living crisis, may not have the resources to invest in. David Saunders, Music Development Manager at Tees Music Alliance said: “Successful applicants from this residency will not only walk away with helpful advice but will have actual things that can advance their career, whether that be new music and industry advice, newly recorded music they can release, or promotional material, such as a live video and photoshoot, that they can use to increase their opportunities of press coverage or getting a gig. Alongside the facilities that will be available to artists, it also gives bands and artists an opportunity to share a creative hub with other musicians which can lead to collaboration and connections that allows ideas to flourish and can lead to exciting opportunities down the line.”

Artists are invited to apply before Friday 1st September and applications are open to musicians of all genres based in Teesside and the North East, regardless of where they are in their careers, to apply visit
