Love music? Well, so do we.
Music Hoarders United is a hungry independent record label designed to showcase new underground music by artists you’ve probably never heard of. We understand the drive and satisfaction that defines the creative process – because we’re musicians, too! Associated with leading music loving sites The ‘Vinyl Hoarders’ and ‘Vinyl & CD Hoarders’ on Facebook, our manifesto is simple – ‘Good music deserves to be heard’.
We don’t give a damn how old an artist is, if they have ever done a live gig, if they currently have no audience, or where they live. There is a lot of indie music promotion going on out there but still so much fantastic music goes unheard. We know this is simply because many artists do not fit the magical money making criteria – or the predetermined marketing mould – and no one will give them a chance.
So come and join us on our journey of discovery. Our goal is to release a series of collectible compilation albums, as well as releases by individual artists and bands. We also believe that within every artist is a compelling story – and we look forward to sharing the personal experiences, influences and inspirations of fellow music makers from around the globe.
So let’s unite and start hoarding those unheard musical gems from across the world.
We really aren’t all that interested in how much ‘music industry experience’ an artist does or doesn’t have. Everyone is desperate to know how to make it in the music industry. We can’t answer that question but what we can reaffirm is that if you read any top indie music blogs you will discover that it’s not always about technical proficiency or having an amazing sounding recording. We have come to know first hand that a lot of incredible music has been made by unlikely characters in their dodgy bedroom music studio. Nothing is more exciting to us than finding those hidden gems and pulling them out of the woodwork. We can’t wait to showcase our first compilation album of undiscovered music to the world.
We are Lee and Robert, friends since the age of five. We were both surrounded by music from a very early age and began writing and recording our own tunes when we were 14. We both had dinky little Casio keyboards and would spend hours carefully crafting music that we are still proud of today. In our late teens we formed a ‘real’ band, played live gigs and recorded in a real studio. That was way back in the 80s, a time when there were no underground music blogs or music review sites, hell the internet didn’t even exist then. It was extremely difficult to find record labels accepting demos and was just very hard to get the word out in general. Things are easier now and it’s a far more encouraging time for musicians. Music Hoarders United is excited to be helping foster that encouragement and aims to seek out musicians that do not have an audience and showcase them to the world. Watch this space!
