  1. Midem 2012

    Leave a Comment

     For the sixth year running Horus Music is attending Midem.  Midem is where the world music industry gather to do business, exchange and debate ideas and network  / meet new people and  meet up with old contacts.  When you want to licence your music, publish your music, distribute it, find a music manager, get a tour or play in a particular country, basically anything to develop your musical career around the world, or find out what new services are out there, Midem is the place to be.

    By Horus Music being an established company and by going to Midem each year for the last six years, Horus Music has developed a network of great contacts from all aspects of the music industry.  The first year you go, it’s all daunting and you don’t know many people, but each time you go back, you meet more and more and get to know who the real good business people are and who are the hoping to make a quick buck (luckily because of the cost and commitment needed for Midem, there are not many of those).  Trust is very important and because we keep going back it shows we’re a business that is not going away as well as our trust builds as many companies around the world are doing great business with us and word does spread.

    We are very much looking forward to Midem this year and have a great number of artists we are representing to help further their careers.  If you are attending Midem and would like to meet up with us, please do email us or come and say hello, we’ll be on the UKTI / UK / BPI stand.

    On Tuesday the 24th of January Horus Music presents a night of original live music at the Musician. Performing on the night will be four of Leicester’s most up and coming and established artists Scott Adams, Wekie, Nancy Dawkins and Grace and the Magic Roots.

    Scott Adams is a singer/songwriter who has built up quite a reputation and following locally. Scott will open up the night and is accompanied on guitar by Carl Jenkins. 2012 promises to be a big year for Scott with the release of his debut EP.

    Weikie, also known as Adam Weikert, is primarily known for his drumming in local band ‘Her Name is Calla’. A proven multi-instrumentalist and seasoned live performer, Weikie has now emerged onto the local scene with a refocused sound as a folk based singer songwriter. A free single released at the start of January 2012 will be followed shortly by a full-length album that will only further demonstrate his unique talent.

    Nancy Dawkins is a singer-songwriter from Leicester who performs regularly on the local scene. Releasing her debut single Smoke/Inadequate last year Nancy gained regional and national radio play including Steve Lamacq’s BBC Radio 2 show. Nancy continues to gig locally whilst currently working on her debut album.

    Grace and the Magic Roots is an acoustic string quartet who is influenced from a mix of styles ranging from traditional inspired folk music and roots reggae. They will leave you somewhat bewildered and mystified but captivated at the same. The band is gearing up to release their debut album in 2012.

    Doors are at 8PM
    Admission is £5
