Isle of Wight shop to sell island music

Music fans booking Isle of Wight holidays for this summer could visit a shop on the island that is selling local music.

Shorelines in Cowes has become one of the first shops on the island to announce it is to focus on selling music made by local groups.

Owner Clairey Meadowcroft is now calling for Isle of Wight bands to get in touch if they want the store to stock their CDs, reports the Isle of Wight County Press.

"We want to stock as many local bands as possible. We don't want to make money out of this and are doing this free of charge. We want to hear from those who would like to sell their music and be promoted," she was quoted as saying by the news provider.

The shop will also be playing music by Isle of Wight bands throughout the course of its opening hours in order to spread the word about local acts.

Ms Meadowcroft added only tracks by groups and musicians from the Isle of Wight are going to be selected to be played over the store's speakers.

She stated it is hoped this is going to attract the attention of customers, which in turn could then lead to increased sales of the CDs.

The store owner also noted the venue is interested in advertising any gigs Isle of Wight bands might be putting on, which could make it a great place to head to for those on the island who want to see a live show during their holiday.

"There is so much talent on the island and we're thrilled to be doing this," she said, adding she hopes others enjoy the music as much as she does.

X Factor star Paije Richardson recently announced he recorded his upcoming debut album - which is being released through Pledge Music - on the Isle of Wight.
