A little while ago The String Project agreed to work with a label called All Will Be Well Records. Rather than a traditional record label approach (a deal, some cash up front and then years of indentured slavery seem to have been the terms that even some massively famous artists have had to operate under) it is largely about creating some more opportunities for us to play gigs and other musical activities in exchange for contributing to mutual self-promotion for the label and other artists on their roster. It probably won’t change the world but isn’t onerous and benefits all involved and the music-supporting public.
So far it has mainly been a case of online interactions but this afternoon there is a little gathering for some of the people involved in Oxford so we’ll finally get to put some faces to names. I’m looking forward to it, not least because we get to play alongside many of these people in Mid-November when we headline the AWBW showcase at the Jericho Tavern on 13 November.
