CMU’s Chris Cooke will be popping up at a number of music conferences in the next few months, including the following…

At South By South West in Austin on 14 Mar, he will join a discussion on ‘Getting Songwriters Paid – Fix The Leaky Pipes!’ Informed by the work of the UK’s Music Managers Forum around song royalties in the streaming domain, it will put the spotlight on short-term and long-term solutions that can ensure songwriters always get paid when their music is played.

At MENT in Ljubljana on 30 Mar, Chris will provide a speed briefing on current and future trends in digital music, while also outlining what artists, managers, labels and publishers can do right now with their deals, data, marketing and strategies to fully capitalise on the diversifying digital market.

And at Liverpool Sound City on 28 Apr, he will take part in a super interesting panel called ‘Trust Issues: [Mis]information People Build Their Careers On’. In the digital world it is easier than ever to access knowledge and information, however, “how do we know what information and sources to trust in this oversaturated landscape?”
