By | Published on Monday 16 November 2015


The CMU:DIY team will be busy this week with two events aimed at future talent, as CMU Business Editor Chris Cooke leads sessions for aspiring artists, songwriters and producers, and future music industry leaders.

On Wednesday, CMU:DIY will once again team up with Urban Development for one of its Industry Takeover Seminars at the Red Bull Studios. The session will look at the artist development process pre-record deal, including the importance of collaboration, how to build up a creative and publicity team, and the basics of a DIY marketing campaign. Noisey Executive Editor Sam Wolfson, Method Records A&R Jamila Scott and Ditto Music Business Development Manager James Walsh will be among those sharing their expertise.

Then on Saturday, CMU:DIY will present two sessions as part of the annual Artist Toolkit day at the Roundhouse. The first will provide a beginners guide to copyright, explaining how music rights work, how new artists can protect and monetise their content, and where the collective licensing system fits in. The second will look at the role labels and publishers play in an artists’ career, how these companies discover new talent, and what label and publishing deals look like.

As all this unfolds, City Showcase also presents the Finding The Future programme at the Apple Store in Covent Garden, with three days of panels, interviews and performances. This includes CMU Business Editor Chris Cooke interviewing Absolute Label Services Founder and MD Henry Semmence at 1.30pm on Friday. For more info on Finding The Future click here.
