Tomorrow, music people of Birmingham, is your lucky night. My dear friend and occasional colleague is delivering a workshop on music publishing. I can personally guarantee that it’s going to be great.
I’ve been incredibly fortunate to have John Mostyn on my side as a friend and mentor for many years. Having been on several training programmes lead by him, I’ve had a front row seat to one of the most engaging and knowledgeable minds in the music business. I’ve also worked with and for him, and learned a great deal that way. His ability to unbox and explain complex music industry concepts that go over my head is unmatched. John is a master at gently steering artists towards solutions; I’ve had more than my fair share of good advice to career obstacles.
A gifted raconteur, John demystifies the Music Business in a uplifting and naturally humorous style. John’s solutions are always so simple, so elegant. I’m enjoying a rich and rewarding career as a touring and recording artist. Doing business on a large scale at international level, I’m confident in how I build relationships and do business. And that confidence is born out of what John Mostyn has taught me over the years – I often find myself thinking “what would John do?” That’s because he has a certain style of doing business and bringing creative professionals together. In much the same my songwriting is influenced by what my favourite songwriters do, John has been a huge influence on how I approach business with those songs.
So go, learn, enjoy!
