  • How many songs do you record?

    We record three songs per artist. Two of your songs and an interview feature in the following RawSound TV episode. Your third track is a 'bonus track' featuring two shows afterwards.
    Your three performance videos are also used stand-alone. Shows and performance videos are uploaded to our official website and YouTube channel.

  • How much does it cost?

    We shoot your performances, mix and master the audio, and create finished videos for FREE. However, donations to our PayPal or Patreon channels are the lifeblood of RawSoundTV. Please donate if you can. Some artists donate £10 or £20, others as much as £50. It’s up to you.

  • Where are you based?

    Glass Onion Recording Studio
    Multicultural House
    55 Great Hampton St
    B18 6EL

  • When do you shoot the videos?

    We shoot videos every other Friday evening at Glass Onion Recording Studio. Please note that we shoot two bands during the session. So it’s fun, there’s beer, but it’s busy. Please arrive on time. Allow for travel delays if travelling from outside of Birmingham.

  • Can we embed the videos on our socials?

    Too right you can. Apart from being great fan content, your performances can strengthen applications for shows and festivals. Plus, sharing the RawSound TV love is what keeps us afloat. Ripping the videos is strictly prohibited, though — don’t be that band.

  • Do you book everyone that applies?

    We try our very best! However, the sheer volume of applications, means that getting you on the show may take a little while. Hang in there, and we’ll get to you as soon as possible.

  • How do I know if my application is successful?

    Once we’ve received your request, you’ll receive a confirmation email. We’ll add you to the waiting list and when a slot becomes available, we’ll email you again with the date and time. If you can make it, we’ll get you booked!
