FREE Workshop for young musicians, producers and labels

Manic Music is hosting a creative workshop for local musicians aged 18-24 at the Seed Creative Hub. Press Play is free to attend and will run on 11th-12th April 2015. The 2 day event delivers young musicians the opportunity to learn writing techniques along with recording your track. It also teaches you how to promote your music and brand effectively to your target audience and industry professionals. Press Play combines all the elements that are essential in becoming a successful musician and emphasises the true importance of branding.

Jed Spittle, organiser of press play said: “Press Play is the first time the creation of music, marketing and branding of music have been covered at the same time. Branding has become an important part of what a musician needs to understand.” Jed added: “The industry now expects the full package, they want to see you’ve already got your Facebook following, brand and who you are.” Press Play is a unique experience and a fantastic networking opportunity to meet potential future collaborators or partners in the industry. Targeting the right market is the key to being a successful musician and getting your music heard. Press Play’s main aim is to prepare young people for this and educate them in a fun and creative way.

Local producer, Dave Tidmarsh who has worked with local artists including: Martin Luke Brown, Mark Elliott and By The Rivers said: “I’m looking forward to helping musicians understand the importance in creating considered arrangements and polished recordings” The aim of Press Play is to prepare young artists for what it takes to get noticed and signed. “It’s important to be aware of your own branding and marketing and not just the product. Thats why this weekend is great because they're getting a bit of everything.”
