///FROM ME TO YOU///
On November 29th Karousel Music are going to be up in Wood Green in ‘Kabaret at Karamel’ with our friends from Collage Arts to support independent musicians for a special one day event, ‘From Me To You’. The day is being organised by indie artist and Featured Artist Coalition board member Roxanne de Bastion, in association with Karousel Music, Success Express Music and Artists in The Plus. We’re delighted to be helping out. The event is something we’ve been considering doing ourselves for a while on the back of the success of the networking nights, so it’s the perfect hookup, and we’re proud to be assisting. We’re always happy to be helping artists, not least when brought together by such proactive and socially minded ones. Hats off Rox!
#FM2U is a celebration of independent music making featuring panels chaired by musicians and experts from the new music industry from the UK and beyond. Discussions will centre around cutting edge issues pertinent to songwriters and recording artists; networking & collaborating opportunities; as well as live music to round off the evening. The show in the evening will feature short sets from several independent artists including Pat Dam Smyth, Jess Morgan, Chris Simmons and more. See the #FM2U facebook for lineup announcement, or ours here.
We’re delighted to confirm experts and innovators of the new music industry, including representatives from Sofar Sounds, Spotify, Music Kickup, Amazing Radio and BBC 6Music, as well as from important music industry institutions including Jon Webster from the MMF (inventor of the Mercury Music Prize and ‘Now That’s What I Call Music’) and representatives from the FAC (Featured Artist Coalition).
Free registration is now full. Remaining tickets are £5 and available at eventbrite
