The Academy of Contemporary Music (ACM) is incredibly excited to announce a brand-new partnership with UKRD’s Eagle Radio. In yet another music industry education first, the deal sees ACM enter into title sponsorship of UKRD’s youth-focused DAB Radio Station eagle3 to provide a platform for new music from a whole new generation of artists.
“Given ACM’s commitment to preparing the next generation of music industry professionals for life-long, sustainable careers in music, a partnership with UKRD’s Eagle Radio is a natural move. We’re incredibly excited to embark on this partnership with them. Thousands of our students and graduates are already out there, pushing creative boundaries and creating new sounds thanks to our strong links within the music and creative industries, so this new partnership with eagle3 provides them with yet another real platform for their work and an exciting opportunity to engage with young people the world-over thanks to the station’s international reach and potential.”
Kainne Clements Executive Chairman of the ACM
“We can’t think of a better partner sponsor to have than ACM; a forward-thinking organisation that helps people find their way in the music business. We’re delighted to be teaming up with them.”
Peter Gordon Eagle Programme Director
Several ACM artists have already been showcased on eagle3, including Annabel Allum, Megan Linford, Ariana Tahanzadeh, Madd Elizabeth, Jack Vallier, Henry boeree and Andrew Humphries to name a few. Put together with a one-of-a-kind partnership with Metropolis Studios, Europe’s largest recording complex (responsible for, on average, over 50% of the UK Chart in any given year), the deal with UKRD solidifies ACM’s place at the forefront of Music Industry Education, providing students with unparalleled preparation, opportunities and platforms into the music business.
