MMBE and Gateshead college are pleased to announce sponsorship of the second in the Music Futures Series, ‘The Future of Music Publishing’.
‘Music Futures Series’ is Generator’s new music business panel programme, giving regional musicians and businesses the chance to pick the brains of some of the industry’s leading figures like Simon Raymonde (Bella Union) and Caroline Elleray (Universal Music).
Featuring a series of weekly panels, running from Thursday 28th June to Thursday 19th July at Newcastle’s Live Theatre, industry experts will give their unique insight into the future of record labels, publishing, marketing and broadcasting. The panels will demonstrate how regional artists and music businesses can take advantage of the latest industry developments and use them to create new platforms and sources of income.
The second event on 5th July will focus on music publishing, which is now considered by some more important to an artist’s career than getting a record deal. Panelists will discuss how songwriters and musicians can generate income from their songs in the new music industry.
Giving their insight here are Caroline Elleray of Universal Music, who signed publishing deals with Coldplay and Keane; Ryan Farley of Warner Chappell; Steve Farris of Polar Patrol, a publishing company set up by the band Snow Patrol and Helen Gammons CEO of Sync in the City and author of ‘The Art of Music Publishing’.
The 5th July event will be an ideal opportunity for anyone interested in studying MMBE to come down, meet the tutors and have a few free drinks!
Future of Music Publishing – Thursday 5th July: 5.30pm – 9.30pm
Each panel runs from 6pm – 8pm and is followed by networking and drinks
