Take your music career to the next level and grow your fanbase with the Fanbase Builder Programme from CMU’s Pathways Into Music Foundation and Help Musicians.
The FREE ten-week professional development programme will provide fifteen early-career artists from Northern Ireland with a series of practical online and in-person workshops that explain how frontline artists go about building a business around their music-making, with practical advice on how to effectively release tracks and grow a fanbase.
Each participating artist will also undertake a fanbase building project during the programme, most likely linked to a new release. With support and advice from a team of music industry experts and a bursary of £500 to spend on the project, artists will identify measurable objectives and a marketing strategy for their campaign, implement that plan and – in the process - grow their fanbase and take their music career to the next level.
The programme will be delivered by Chris Cooke - co-founder and MD of CMU, Phil Nelson - artist manager (Aqualung, Duke Special) and co-founder of The Great Escape, Fiona McAuley - Head of Digital at YMU (Years & Years, Clean Bandit) and Liam Craig - music educator and artist manager (ROE).
