Since the pandemic began, Fiona has been building stronger ties with the Scottish music scene. She started the Local Heroes playlist to celebrate and feature unsigned and underrepresented voices from around Scotland.
The playlist has showcased over 150 artists already and is the basis for several of Fiona's projects including her Instagram series Shout Out Saturdays and New Music Friday, as well as her radio show Fiona Liddell's Local Heroes on In Your Ears Music.
Local Heroes is a community-led platform, inspired by Fiona's desire to see a more collaborative scene. From the beginning the playlist has been about championing unsigned and underrepresented artists, and will continue to uplift community members and promote collaboration, cooperation and support for everyone no matter the stage of their career.
Submissions are currently open to all Scotland-based artists. See more on submitting your work to the playlist below
