Almost two-thirds of the most successful albums of the past year have been recorded by local artists outside the capital.
These artists accounted for 62% of hits, according to Official Charts Company data used for a major UK phonographic industry report released today.
Geoff Taylor, Managing Director of BPI, said: “This analysis highlights that artistic talent continues to be nurtured and developed across the UK.”
The BPI supports the Daily Express’ Strike A Chord campaign which fights to save music education in public schools.
Liverpool is the number one music hub outside of London with Manchester in third place.
The North West hubs represent 29 of the top 300 albums by UK artists over the past 12 months.
Liverpool’s success reflects a dance music culture epitomized by super club Cream.
The city is also home to the Institute of Performing Arts, co-founded by Sir Paul McCartney.
Glasgow, Birmingham and Brighton were also in the top 10 music hotspots according to the survey.
