In a bid to make waves on the publishing industry, online music resource The Music Directory is launching a distinctive publication with a unique selling point: it's a ‘music magazine with a conscience’.

Freeq Magazine has been created for 16-25 year olds, particularly those within the student community. It supports independent music, with the vast majority of content dedicated to covering unsigned and up-and-coming bands and artists.

The magazine also covers social, cultural and environmental issues – both locally and globally – in an attempt to get the younger generation interested and involved in making a positive difference on their community and their planet.

The pilot issue, which features specially-commissioned illustrations, is soon to be distributed at a range of universities and colleges across Britain, as well as at selected live venues and music businesses. An electronic version will also be available online from February 18th.

Sam Borrett, director of The Music Directory Ltd commented: “Freeq Magazine aims to give a platform to independent music and make sure that young people are engaging in important social issues. We do this by using music as a means of helping them to take steps to impact society and the planet. Not only are we opening doors for up-and-coming bands and artists to gain publicity and opportunities in the industry, but we’re committed to doing it with an ‘ethical’ hat on.”
