A Song for Glasgow

Your chance to record a Song for Glasgow with Go Radio and Glasgow Life

Win your chance to write, record and perform your love letter to the city

Glasgow’s music scene is legendary. Internationally recognised and named the UK’s first UNESCO City of Music, hosting Scotland’s biggest music festivals to many of its national organisations, and with many iconic and diverse venues, music is the city’s beating heart. Now, we’ve teamed up with Go Radio to find the perfect song that showcases what this amazing city means to you!

What we are looking for

We have teamed up with Go Radio to bring you this exciting opportunity! We are looking for a piece of music made specifically for use on Glasgow Life campaigns. The track length should be between 2:30 minutes and 3:30 minutes and must be able to be de-constructed to fit our different campaigns such as videos, social and events.  

The song should have a real Scottish feel with lyrics that resonate with both locals and visitors alike - but that doesn't mean it needs to be really traditional, it can be contemporary - just like the city's music scene!

The melody should be catchy, inviting, and reflective of our great city’s dynamic energy, leaving a lasting impression on the listener. 

It should also fit in with Glasgow Life’s brand identity which involves, inclusivity, commitment and being ambitious.

What’s in it for you?

The winner will receive:

  • the opportunity to perform your song at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall
  • a feature on the Go Radio Breakfast Show with Crofty & Grado
  • 5 days studio time at the famous Gorbals Sound studios (used by some of Scotland’s best talent) with a studio engineer
  • PLUS your track will be used by Glasgow Life in our forthcoming campaigns - from films to social media, on advertising campaigns and at events

How to enter

So whether your a solo artist, a duo, a trio or a seven piece band we want to hear from you!
