BBC Music Introducing is BBC Radio's platform supporting unsigned, undiscovered, and under-the-radar UK talent. It gives artists the opportunity to be played on BBC local radio and nationally on BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra, Radio 2, 6 Music, the Asian Network and Radio 3, as well as playing Introducing stages at festivals such as Glastonbury, Reading and Leeds and Radio 1’s Big Weekend. Since launching in 2007, Introducing has helped launched the careers of Izzy Bizu, George Ezra, Jack Garratt, Florence + the Machine, Ed Sheeran, Jake Bugg, Catfish and the Bottlemen, James Bay and Little Simz. There are currently over 190,000 registered artists and over 470,000 tracks uploaded to the BBC Music Introducing website, who get played weekly across 38 Introducing shows on BBC radio, each reflecting its local music scene around the country. This year BBC Music Introducing celebrated its 10th anniversary with a live concert at Brixton’s O2 Academy with George Ezra, Slaves, Rae Morris, Everything Everything, Nao and more performing live on BBC Radio 1. In 2010 BBC Music Introducing was awarded the best new platform to discover music at the BT Digital Music Awards. In May 2011, BBC Music Introducing won the Gold award for Best Use of Multiplatform at the Sony Radio Academy Awards.[1]

Since 5 January 2013, every BBC Local Radio station across England and the Channel Islands broadcasts a BBC Music Introducing programme at 8pm on Saturday evenings.

History[edit]

The initial idea was to introduce a BBC new music discovery proposition consistent across all local and network radio. BBC Music Introducing was created and selected as the brand name by Jason Carter, the former Head Of Live Music at Radio 1, who was the brand’s figure-head up until 2017, when Introducing’s Production Manager Rachel Coomber took over as Editor. Dan Roberts currently assumes the role of Editor while Rachel is on maternity leave. Introducing’s creation followed research via a pan BBC music steering group. It was developed as a property that could be added to existing show names, or used as a signpost for features within programming.

BBC Music Introducing was launched in 2007, and by this period many BBC local radio stations had launched a weekly local music show to share and champion local artists. As shows such as The Box Office on BBC Three Counties Radio, The Download on BBC Radio Oxford, The Friday Session on BBC Hereford and Worcester, Raw Talent on BBC Radio Humberside and The Weekender on BBC Radio Nottingham proved popular there was interest in developing a more coherent structure and brand for new music on the BBC. These shows soon turned into the earliest BBC Music Introducing shows. [2]

In September 2010 all BBC local unsigned music shows that had not renamed themselves as part of the 'Introducing' were re-branded.[3]

10th Anniversary[edit]

On Wednesday 4th October 2017, BBC Music Introducing celebrated its tenth birthday by holding a four hour gig at the O2 Academy Brixton which was live on BBC Radio 1 and hosted by Annie Mac and Huw Stephens. Introducing alumni including: George Ezra, Nao, Everything Everything, The Big Moon, Declan McKenna, Slaves, Rae Morris, Blossoms and Jake Bugg performed at the live showcase. South London grime artist Yizzy also performed on the night, and was the winner of Introducing’s Future Fund – an artist grant launched in partnership with PRS Foundation.

On Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th October, BBC Music Introducing also hosted Amplify – a mass-scale conference composed of masterclasses, workshops and performances at the ExCel Centre in London. It featured talks from key figures in the music industry including Huw Stephens, Steve Lamacq, Jamie Cullum, Twin B, Annie Mac, DJ Target and Jo Whiley.

Festival stages[edit]

BBC Music Introducing has hosted a stage at festivals since 2007. In the last ten years Introducing has been present at Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds, Latitude, T In The Park, Radio 1’s Big Weekend, Cheltenham Jazz festival, Reeperbahn, 6 Music Live, Winter Jazzfest in New York, SXSW in Texas and more. In 2017 BBC Music Introducing was present at Creamfields and the Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE), focusing solely on DJs and electronic acts for the first time. Previous acts to have played the Introducing stages include Jack Garratt, Ed Sheeran, George Ezra, Bombay Bicycle Club, Little Simz, Blossoms, Loyle Carner, Slaves, Rosie Lowe, Glass Animals, Soak, Viola Beach, Catfish and the Bottlemen, James Bay, Royal Blood and CHVRCHES.

A national network[edit]

The 38 Introducing shows on BBC local radio are a hub to showcase the wealth of new music being discovered across the regions. From here, artists are forwarded to BBC DJs to play on national radio, and they can also be put forward to play festival stages by their local show. Every week the BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra music teams feature an Introducing artist on their playlists. Previous Introducing artists of the week have included Tom Grennan, The Sherlocks, The Big Moon, Mahalia, Willie J Healey, Isaac Gracie, Declan McKenna, Pale Waves, Shy Luv, Mullally, Isaiah Dreads and Alicai Harley.

Upload tool[edit]

In February 2009, an upload tool (now internally referred to as Peel, named after the late John Peel) was launched on the BBC Music Introducing website to allow users to upload their music direct to Introducing producers and presenters. Artists/bands enter their postcode at the point of registering and notifications about any songs they upload are sent to BBC staff working on their nearest Introducing radio show, which can then be forwarded to the likes of BBC Radio 1, Radio 2, Radio 3, BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio 1Xtra or BBC Asian Network.

All material submitted to the BBC Music Introducing brand via the upload tool is classified by the BBC as User Generated Content (UGC),[4] and they encourage[5] users to read the Corporation's Terms of Use[6] in relation to UGC before uploading material.

Successes[edit]

The earliest success stories include Florence and The Machine, who Introducing took to Texas in 2008 to play at SXSW festival, and Ed Sheeran who played the Introducing stage at Glastonbury in 2011. Introducing has also helped push the careers of the likes of Marina and The Diamonds, Ellie Goulding, The 1975, Chip/Chipmunk, Låpsley, JME & Skepta, Rizzle Kicks, Stornoway, Alt-J, TCTS, Wretch 32, Ward Thomas, Gabrielle Aplin, Years & Years, Circa Waves, Saint Raymond, Don Broco, AlunaGeorge, Becky Hill, Devlin, The Ting Tings, Will Heard, Moko, KStewart, The Sherlocks, London Grammar, Oh Wonder, Fickle Friends, The Amazons, The Shires, Nothing But Thieves, Jacob Collier, Jerry Williams, Matt Maltese, Jordan Max, IDER, Glass Animals and Pulled Apart By Horses.

Other Acclaims[edit]

In 2014 BBC Music Introducing became the UK's selection method for the Eurovision Song Contest, with artists being picked from the uploader.

Award[edit]

Starting in 2014, the BBC Music Awards have celebrated the best in British music. Since the inaugural ceremony, the BBC Music Introducing Artist of the Year award has been presented to an artist who has made a significant impact with the aid of BBC Music Introducing.
