Welcome to The Twang Factor 2, AUK’s platform for new and emerging acts

Following a very successful inaugural series, The Twang Factor is back to bring you the best new and emerging americana acts.

Yes, AUK is running a new season of The Twang Factor, a showcase for new, unknown or emerging artists. Each week we will feature a different new artist and publish a clip of them performing, along with some information about them and links to their social media.

Like to have a go yourself or know someone that might? Here’s how to get involved:

Send us a link to you performing an original song. Our email address is thetwangfactor@americana-uk.com We will then view it and if you stand out from the crowd, we will be in touch. Chosen artists will then be invited to make an exclusive recording for AUK which will appear on the site in one of our weekly slots.

A few things to note:

  • This is aimed at new and unknown artists.
  • Despite the name, the feature is open to artists working in the broad americana/folk range – you know the kind of stuff we dig.
  • Your material must be original – no covers please.

Good luck. We look forward to hearing from you – and tell your friends!

Here’s a reminder of last year’s winning entry:
