YouBloom Live at The Cobden Club

Pink Cigar at Cafe Rocks - YouBloom Hosted by Micky P

New music website  aimed at helping artists thrive financially as well as artistically,  is launching Live Music Nights to showcase local talent to a live audience.


Starring KITES, PINK CIGAR, GUILTY ONES, NEW FORBIDDEN, BORDEAUXXX, HURRICANE and more +VERY SPECIAL GUEST CELEBRITY DJ  till 2AM


Hosted by Micky P, well known organiser of live music, London will be the first city to benefit from this global site’s “Live” Program, which will soon be rolling out to Derry, Dublin and LA.

The line-up at The Cobden includes several UK finalists from the YouBloom Song Contest which is currently running on the
www.youbloom.com  site.

In the YouBloom Song Contest, artists enter their songs into rounds of heats, playoffs and finals with cash prizes. In each round, as well as member voting playoffs, there is a judging session with a panel led by the iconic Bob Geldof, a long time friend of YouBloom Founder, Phil Harrington

YouBloom is the brainchild of entrepreneur and musician Phil Harrington. “My vision and that of everyone involved with YouBloom is to build a new global economy of artists which will change the dynamic of the industry and at last drive the internet to deliver creatively and financially for artists.
The current file-sharing and free-download culture makes it almost impossible for unsigned artists to monetize their music and YouBloom seeks to change that.”

“However, we felt it was important to bring YouBloom into the real world, so that is why we are launching a program of YouBloom Live events, where we can start to showcase the talent on YouBloom in real time to a live audience. I will be over from LA for our first YouBloom Live event in London, which will be a really exciting night for us.”

“For too long new artists with talent have not been able to get a good listen or a fair deal,” says Phil. “It’s also frustrating that the only music competitions being supported by the media tend to be focused on Karaoke-style contests which ignore the need to encourage and support originality, which is the real core of music.”

In order to provide support for the participating artists in the Contest, Phil set out to introduce a judging panel of industry experts who would provide valuable constructive critiques during the contest, calling in long-time friends Bob Geldof, A&R genius, Nigel Grainge and songwriter & music producer Rupert Hine. Says Harrington, “Bob and Nigel work really well together having forged a close relationship after Nigel signed The Boomtown Rats to his Ensign label. They are all passionate about the need to find and nurture undiscovered musical talent.”

“This contest is about finding the next generation of influential writers and performers and helping to give them a more financially viable future,” echoes Nigel. With their intention to assemble a cross-genre panel of judges they enlisted US megawatt record producer, Damion “Damizza” Young for the 2010 Contest.

You can see what they had to say about the qualifying songs in the Q1 Semifinal on the site (http://youbloom.com/semifinaljudging/) and they are about to judge the songs in the Q2 Semifinal.


Then in November, they will take part in the YouBloom Grand Final to identify the YouBloom Song of the Year, with members having the final say by voting.
