The Digital Music Market

February 23, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Bookings: ei.ormi@stneve (FREE event – Booking essential)

Host: Chris Cooke MD and Business Editor at CMU

This CMU Insights session reviews the digital music market in 2017, looking at the kinds of services gaining traction in different markets, and the specific platforms that have the most momentum in terms of users and/or revenue. It will also provide a basic beginners guide to how the music industry is licensing these services and how digital royalties flow through the system, and consider the challenges of converting freemium users to premium services, and securing sustained listening of individual artist’s recordings to ensure success in the streaming age.

Chris Cooke is MD and Business Editor of CMU, a service provider to the music industry. Best known for its media – the CMU Daily, CMU Podcast, CMU Digest and CMU Trends – the CMU business also provides training and consultancy to music companies, hosts the CMU Insights @ The Great Escape conference, and runs the CMU:DIY education programme for new talent.

CMU is part of Chris’s company 3CM UnLimited, through which he also publishes cultural recommendations service ThisWeek London, its sister magazine ThreeWeeks Edinburgh and the TW:TALKS podcast; and helps run award winning PR training charity the Taylor Bennett Foundation.

With degrees in English and Law, Chris regularly writes about, discusses and comments on media and media law, music and comedy, and the music and communication industries. He authored the report ‘Dissecting The Digital Dollar’ for the UK’s Music Managers Forum and occasionally performs spoken word show ‘Chris Cooke’s Free Speech’.
