Funding for musicians to record and release music

Funding and support are available for professional musicians in the UK towards recording and releasing music, helping them to build creative portfolios and get music out into the world.

The Record and Release funding programme from Help Musicians offers a package of funding and expert advice, including wellbeing and development services, to support solo artists, composers, group members, songwriters, producers or multidisciplinary artists aged 18 and over.

Grants of up to £3,000 are available to fund the cost of recording and releasing a new body of work by music creators who are controlling one or more aspects of their career (eg self-managing, self-releasing or self-producing).

Eligible costs and activities include studio hire, merchandise, PR and marketing, and software.

Programme participants also benefit from:

  • One-to-one business advice sessions tailored to their needs and delivered via experienced music industry professionals, as coordinated by ThinkMusic.
  • A one-to-one health consultation with British Association for Performing Arts Medicine (BAPAM) professionals, covering all aspects of a musician’s health, including physical and mental health needs and specialist referrals where required.

Supported activities must be delivered within 12 months of accepting a grant.

Applications may be made at any time while funding remains available.
