As part of the Write:Record:Release series of events organised by Dubrek Studios and Real Creative Futures we’ll be sharing our experience and giving some advice on all things record label and PR on 2 June 2018.
The events, which are on Dubrek (which is on Beckett Street in Derby and home to many Reckless Yes bands) on Saturdays throughout May and June, bring together industry experts across all aspects of music making and releasing to share their skills and experience.
Or, as Real Creative Futures put it, “Write:Record:Release is a step by step guide for the musician explaining the processes of songwriting, composition, vocals & performance, recording & production, mastering, releasing and publishing, and the music business. Industry professionals will demystify each stage, adding valuable tips from their own wealth of knowledge giving each musician the necessary tools to improve their craft and further their career.”
Sounds good, right?
We’ll be there to host a one hour workshop taking in approaching labels, forming your own label, other ways of releasing your music, and ways of getting noticed by the media or building an audience online. We’ll also be part of a Q&A session where you can ask us anything (about record labels and media stuff anyway) and we will try and answer!
The session runs from 2 to 5pm on Saturday 2 June 2018 and is free to attend, but does need booking in advance – which you can do here.
There are lots of other good sessions running in the series too so if you’re interested in making or releasing music make sure you come along to get the low down from some amazing experts. Check out:
