She Is The Music

Other notable announcements and developments today…

• She Is The Music, the US charity which supports women in the music industry, has announced new funding from Billboard and Universal Music. The two companies have jointly donated $75,000 to help build SITM’s database of female music professionals and develop its mentoring programme. “Partnerships like this enable us to provide women with opportunities that will drive creativity to new heights and make for a better music world”, says SITM co-founder and Universal Music Publishing boss Jody Gerson.

• As well as supporting the initiative, Billboard has also once again provided timely proof as to why initiatives like She Is The Music are still vital in the music industry. Yep, it’s another pointless power list.

• Sony Pictures Classics has acquired worldwide rights to a documentary about folk singer John Prine, currently going by the working title ‘John Prine: Hello In There’.

• Marina – just Marina now, no Diamonds – has released the video for new single ‘Handmade Heaven’.

• Lewis Capaldi has released a new video for ‘Someone You Loved’, starring Peter Capaldi. Yes, they are related, but only very distantly. Still, the family connection probably helped to get him on board. Also, it’s for a good cause. The video was made in partnership with organ donation charity Live Life Give Life.

• Whipped Cream has released new single ‘You Wanted It’.

• Show Me The Body will release new album ‘Dog Whistle’ on 29 Mar. From it, this is ‘Camp Orchestra’.
