The recording will then be followed by a release worldwide via PAp Records ®. The release will be supported with an Airplay campaign that is tailored to suit your budget. We will work within your budget so that you can compete worldwide with the Majors. Contact us via e-mail for full details.

Why You Have To “Promote” Your Music To Radio Now that you have taken the time to write, record and make a great record, you must put together a viable “plan of action” with respect to obtaining airplay if you hope to have any reasonable chance of success. One of the most misunderstood facts of marketing a record is how and why you must promote it to radio. Sending your release to radio, and actually getting airplay are two separate things. The most common misunderstanding of artists releasing music to radio is that they believe that if you send it to radio, and if everyone starts playing it, then it's a hit. And if they don’t start playing it, then it’s no good. This is not how radio works. It is important to understand that radio is not going to play your music NO MATTER HOW GOOD IT IS unless you MARKET IT TO THEM.

The line-up features Oliver Byrne on vocals and guitars, singer Amanda Cadwallader, producer Carl Bennett on piano and synthesizer, Jon Beaman on bass and drummer Mark Beamish.

Carl told the Globe: "As a band we focus on our original material, we pride ourselves in the fact that everything to do with The Shed Spiders, everything you see and hear; is original and done by ourselves.

"We write, perform, record and mix our own songs by ourselves using our own equipment.

"In our debut album we bring emotion, feelings and thoughts heavily to the sound and lyrics, we have delivered a great all-round balance to the album ranging from hard up beat rock tracks to softer heartfelt ballads followed by feel good tracks."

Their many influences include Guns & Roses, Stereophonics, Oasis, 3 Doors Down and Nickelback.
