About the Workshop
If you are planning on having a long term career in the industry, media people need to hear your music. Undertaking a media and publicity campaign to promote your brand may seem daunting, but it’s not impossible. This discussion will focus on the role of a publicist and how to effectively do your own publicity and get music into the hands of these industry taste makers.
The MusicWorks DIY Series offers developing artists and industry, as well as veterans looking to update their skills, the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of the music business. The series starts with the music business fundamentals that everyone needs to master – bio writing, radio play, mastering social media, touring, and understanding copyright -- and ends with planning a release, showing how each of these pieces fit together to create a cohesive strategy.
