A YOUNG music producer has set up a website for unsigned bands.

Stamford Schoolboy Jacob Windsor, 16, from Glinton, was inspired to set up NewBorn Sounds after seeing his friend Harry Ridgeway perform at the Voodoo Lounge in Stamford.

He had no knowledge of web coding but after researching design techniques online he had his site set up within a couple of weeks.

It has now been live for two months and Jacob is delighted with the response.

He said: “I don’t have any funds for advertising but a lot of artists have uploaded their music just through finding the site.

“I have quite a few Twitter followers as well which is important.”

Jacob is not yet making any money from the site, but is keen to show off some of the talent from Stamford and beyond.

He said: “It’s not about profit at the moment. There is so much talent that is not signed and no-one knows about it.

“I try to see as many of the bands live as I can.

“I am trying to look out for local bands and focus on trying to get them signed up.”

Jacob, who produces his own music in his spare time, is currently studying for his GCSEs but hopes to take an A-level in music technology.

He added: “It is early days but I would like to expand into a record label to sign artists too, or open up a production studio.”
