The project brings together a network of venues, promoters, producers and other music types from across the county who share the same passion for supporting emerging artists and grassroots music. It is not-for-profit and there is just one simple aim – to help raise the profile of Essex based artists.

Founded in 2009, Undiscovered was born out of a common goal of a small group of promoters who all shared a passion for supporting live music. Working under the banner The Essex Music Network (EMA), they decided the best way to work together was to organise a music contest. Not a original idea granted but what made this contest unique was that was to be run by people that are working within the industry, by people that wanted to help new & emerging artists, by people who are not in it for the money.

Since then, and as more and more industry professionals have become part of the EMA , Undiscovered has become a continuing project rather than a just an annual contest and is now part of work of the Essex Music Development Agency.
