Ear Trumpet Music is an independent music agency based in Bristol. Our work consists of two main branches: representation and curation.

We care about the dozen bands that we represent, and we’re primarily driven to share their craft with the rest of the country (and the world!) by the incredible quality of the music they have produced. The relationships we have with each artist results from friendships that have been forged over a few years, and we strive to secure work that demonstrate their art in the best possible way.


For the past 5 years we have curated the live programme for a number of Bristol venues – The Canteen, No.1 Harbourside, The Old Market Assembly – We carefully amalgamate the best local acts from across the music spectrum with new music we unearth as well as being the go to for touring artists nationwide and across the globe, weaving them into the wonderful cultural ecosystem already in place.

Valley Fest

We also curate music for larger festivals and events. For the past 2 years we have curated the music for the award winning local food event Eat Drink Bristol Fashion and have programmed half of the acts for Valley Fest a fantastic sustainable music festival on a community owned organic farm in the heart of South Bristol’s Mendip Hills.
