HUDDERSFIELD-based promoter Timeless Music Project has returned triumphant from the South By South West Festival (SXSW) in America.
The festival in Austin, Texas, has helped to break acts including Amy Winehouse, Corinne Bailey Rae and the Kaiser Chiefs.
Timeless Music Project led by Kava Kava singer Pat Fulgoni hosted another Yorkshire showcase to promote local bands to the world.
Pat, who began taking Yorkshire bands to the festival in 2009, said it had been another great year.
This year’s line-up included Otley’s David Thomas Broughton and Leeds bands Dinosaur Pile-Up and Pulled Apart By Horses.
Pat said: “The showcase was rammed, music industry folk were queuing round the block to get in, which we’re really happy about.
“Spin magazine declared Dinosaur Pile-Up as ‘Best SXSW discovery’ and David Thomas Broughton was Mojo Magazine's ‘pick of the day’.
“We also do the CD every year that involves all the bands that get offered a showcase.
“That goes out of the British stand and they were being snapped up as they’re really useful for the delegates to take away.”
As well as more well known bands who appeared at SXSW the CD also features bands that didn’t make the trip Stateside, including two groups with Huddersfield links, Submotion Orchestra fronted by Ruby Wood and Holmfirth’s Napolean IIIrd.
