The Future of Artist Development

Traditionally large labels have been the ones who nurture talent and have recouped their investment through record sales. If this potential is lost then how are artists to be developed?

With perspectives from artists, labels, publishers and management, this discussion looked at how best to prepare artists for commercial success, new deals and opportunities in the small businesses in this sector.

This unique networking session also explored how small music businesses can create fresh opportunities.
