About Us

Founded in 2015, Busk Music is a online music publication run from Manchester in the UK. Busk Music focuses on upcoming and established artists who have the edge in the market and who we feel are the best yet sometimes not heard! We want to help the smaller and upcoming talent make new connections in the industry and bring our audience the best talent and sounds.

Busk Music Artist Management was found at the end of 2017 and is currently working with a number of artists; for more information about representation please get in touch.



Our Team

Andrew Bottomley

Busk-Music was founded by myself in 2015 out of my passion for upcoming talent and the live music scene. When asked the age old questions “What genre music do you like” I can honestly say I can’t answer it; I really do have a love for any type of music. What I do say, is those tracks which have been written in such a way you can only connect with the lyrics are the ones.

Oscar La-Gambina

Hi I’m Oscar. I’m a student currently based in Bristol with a passion for radio and the music industry. I’ve managed to interview people like The Wombats, The Amazons, Walk The Moon and Twin Atlantic and the inner child within me can’t quite believe it! I’m always on the lookout for the next big rock band or indie artist and I love being able to write about them for other people.
