Virtual MainStage is a new video music channel hosted by Sound Gallery Studios in association with our partners hungersleep records and Integrity records to help musicians, bands and singer-songwriters to reignite their careers.
Virtual Mainstage will showcase releases and Music Videos from these independent labels and Live Sessions from Sound Gallery Studios which will be promoted through Sound Gallery’s Youtube and IGTV channels.
Virtual MainStage will also feature Behind the Scenes industry and studio sessions alongside insightful interviews and anecdotes with experts in a variety of creative roles, including music publishers, artist managers, recording artists, label managers, music producers, engineers and more.
The music content and live sessions are going to streamed online monthly through social media platforms and will be promoted on Sound Gallery’s underground radio show on phonicFM and other national and international radio stations through our industry contacts.
Virtual MainStage has been developed as a direct response to the devastating effects of the pandemic on the live music scene and the music industry and the impact it has had on musicians and music professionals.
Live Studio Sessions
As part of Virtual MainStage we are inviting solo artists, musicians and bands to perform short live sets which will be recorded and filmed at the newly revamped Sound Gallery ‘Studio 2 using our professional facilities operated by our music production team and Wiseman Productions.
The sessions will be recorded, mixed and mastered to release standard with an aim to produce promotional material for online use to enable artists to promote their music and to add to their showreels.
We are delighted to offer a few spaces in the line-up on the MainStage for free and we are reaching out to artists (solo, duos, bands) who have lost their main source of income due to the closure of music venues and cancellation of gigs, concerts and festivals.
So, if you have a new release you have been working on or if you have been labouring over a live set of original material and have had your gigs cancelled – we are here to help.

Virtual MainStage – Live Studio Sessions will be launching in April 2021. Applications are now OPEN.
