You’ve left the studio with your song, and you want to get it out into the world. There is nobody better in the North than Henry Carden for advising here. Henry has history as a musician (Dartz!) and promoter (Twisterella Festival), as well as a researcher (with his academic pursuits focusing around Spotify and Music Streaming) and a music manager working with the likes of Cattle & Cane, Cape Cub, Eve Conway, Jodie Nicholson and Mt. Misery.
Artists who Henry has worked with, all of whom are unsigned Teesside acts, have accumulated tens of millions of Spotify streams, as well as appearances at festivals including BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend, Canadian Music Week, Reeperbahn Festival, Live At Leeds, The Great Escape, Liverpool Sound City, Cambridge Folk Festival and many more. Add to that coverage on BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 6 Music, BT TV, Made In Chelsea, Sunday Brunch and more, Henry is well placed to advise local musicians on how to get their music heard by new audiences.
This session will breakdown why music streaming matters to musicians, how to configure your streaming and social media profile, how to get your music on to streaming services and how to pitch to playlist editors.
