Description

Hello!

We are delighted to invite you to our event taking place on Monday, May 15th at FACT in Liverpool.

Join PRS for Music and two expert panels of experienced music industry professionals, who have hands on experience from across the music industry including Producing, Songwriting, Funding, Artist Management, Press, Radio, TV and, of course, PRS.

Event details:

Doors from 6:00pm

Panel 1 - How To Create Your Masterpiece (6.15pm – 7.15pm)

Technology today means almost anyone can make a decent sounding home recording. However there’s still a huge difference between a homemade demo and a professionally produced and mixed studio recording. And despite all the innovations, a good song will always be key. This panel will discuss the journey of a song, from its inception, through the recording process on to career defining masterpiece status.

Panellists:

Daniel Jones (PRS for Music) - Moderator

Steve Levine (Record Producer)

Dave McCabe (Songwriter / The Zutons)

Natalie McCool (Songwriter)

Elizabeth Sills (PRS Foundation)

Panel 2 - How To Get Your Song Played And Paid (7.30pm – 8.45pm)

You’ve created your masterpiece, but now comes the challenge getting audiences to actually hear your songs and how you can make money from it. In the age of streaming services and curated playlists, is radio still key for up-and-coming artists? What qualities are music supervisors looking for in a song to place it on a TV show? Is getting press still key for breaking an artist? And what are the different revenue streams for songwriters in the digital age? These are just some of the questions we’ll be exploring on this panel.

Panellists:

Daniel Jones (PRS for Music) - Moderator

Karen Buse (PRS for Music)

Dave Monks (Radio Presenter at BBC Introducing Merseyside)

Kate Blakemore (Music Supervisor at Lime Pictures)

Hattie Pearson (Radio Presenter at Key 103, DJ, Manager)

Christopher Torpey (Editor of Bido Lito Magazine)

8:45pm – 11:00pm – Gig & Networking

Following the panels, the evening continues with a gig nearby at Leaf. If you would like to attend the gig, please select the ticket that includes PRS for Music Presents. We will have local members The Vryll Society and Her's performing.

We look forward to seeing you there!
