A&R Thin Lizzy Legend On Scouting Mission to Derry~Londonderry

A&R Thin Lizzy Legend On Scouting Mission to Derry~Londonderry

Nigel Grainge, the man that discovered Thin Lizzy, Sinead O’Connor and the Boomtown Rats to name a few, is making his way to Derry~Londonderry from Los Angeles as a guest of his co-A&R, local man Patrick Cutliffe. He hopes to leave Northern Ireland with at least one artist he can intro to a major label or publishing deal. Nigel is connected to major labels and publishers throughout the US and UK and has a vast network in the music industry. He can, and will, make things happen if he discovers the right act/s. There’s also word on the street that Nigel’s nephew Nicky Shymansky (Amy Winehouse, La Roux) of Island Records may make the trip from London. 
 
If you think this is the best thing since Thin Lizzy, live scouting sessions will take place in the Nerve Centre (7-8 Magazine Street) Tuesday July 2, whereby select independent artists and bands will be asked to come along and perform in the venue, which continuously promotes and help Independent musicians. Keep that date free.

Background:
Patrick has been working as Artist & Repertoire (A&R) alongside Nigel, www.nigelgrainge.com, for 4 years discovering music talent worldwide and bringing artists to the attention of major record labels. In the summer of 2010, in Los Angeles, Patrick sat in on an A&R panel with Bob Geldof, Nigel Grainge (Thin Lizzy, Boomtown Rats), Rupert Hine (Tina Turner, Underworld), Damion Damizza Young (Snoop Dog, Mariah Carey) and Conor McNicholas (Ex NME Editor). Patrick’s dream and passion has always been to help independent artists worldwide to monetise their business and get the recognition they deserve. He set up his own company Artists Live Limited in August 2012 to exploit the use of emerging online technologies, for the promotion of original independent musicians to showcase their wares and make a living.
