Event description

Description

Calling all budding and established songwriters/producers/lyricists/topliners. Over the course of two Saturdays this double-header masterclass will give you a crash course in both creative approaches to your craft and also how to maximise the financial worth of your tunes. This workshop is ideal for behind-the-scenes musicians looking to break into writing for artists, but will also have a wealth of information for solo artists and bands.

Sat 23rd Sep - Loft Studios

Business Approaches

For the morning session we are welcoming Jenny Jones from Ninja Tune (Cinematic Orchestra, Bonobo, Thundercat). Jenny works for their publishing arm Just Isn’t Music on sync - placing existing songs in film, tv and adverts. She will be revealing exactly how that happens, what money is involved, how the legal side works and also how you might be best prepared to get your songs synced. You will also hear from an A&R representative from Universal Publishing (Coldplay, Adele, The XX). They will give a brief introduction to what publishing actually is, before revealing more about a career as a writer/producer/lyricist/topliner and how you might attract a publisher partner. They will also talk about the role of publishing for a solo artist or band and what Universal looks for when signing acts.

The afternoon will be dedicated to in-depth and private one-to-ones with both Ninja Tune and Universal also at Loft Studios. This gives you the chance to speak directly to big players in the industry specifically about YOUR songs and how to make deals happen, how to get into great writing sessions and how to get that money to flow! It is also a great opportunity to play some of your material to our experts and get some honest industry feedback. We envisage each meeting to be about 30mins in length.

Prior booking for the afternoon session essential as demand will be high. Please fill out your details below, including a link to your music and also whether you want to speak to Ninja Tune or Universal. Presently we are capping this at one meeting for each participant, but on the day you might be able to speak to both pending turnout.


Please note*
