    Birmingham folk artist Ben Calvert (Label Bohemian Jukebox, distributed by Horus Music) has his latest video Valpolicella Girl featured on the front page of Google YouTube today.  This week Ben is releasing his new single and is actively marketing the release with a UK wide tour and of supportive press and radio play.  Speaking about this wonderful surprise Ben said “Fantastic news, that’s made my day”.  Nick Dunn, CEO of Horus Music said “Ben has worked very hard in marketing himself and been very thorough.  Its with that kind of attention to detail as well as producing a quality product that made it possible for us to ask Google YouTube for marketing support and show them what the artist was doing to help himself.  We are very grateful and pleased with this success and have seen already in a short time the number of views rocket and this only continues to prove to us the importance of producing a good video and working along side our colleagues at YouTube.”

  2. Loughborough University Careers Fair

    On Wednesday we attended Loughborough University’s Careers Fair which was aimed at the alternative industries.  Throughout the day we met and spoke with students who were interested in working within the music industry.  We discussed and advised them on the different job roles that exist and some of the career paths they could follow based on their skills and their career ambitions.  The most common question of the day seemed to be I love music but I have no musical training or a non musical background so can I get a job in music?   We hopefully went someway to dispelling the myth that you don’t have to be an accomplished musician to work within the industry or have a music degree. It proved to be an enjoyable and successful day.  Have a look at the careers section of our website for more information and advice on careers within the music industry.
