MBW and Curve Royalty Systems to host ‘fireside chat’ event in London on September 13, featuring Various Artists’ David Bianchi and Rebecca Dixon
Music Business Worldwide (MBW) and Curve Royalty Systems are jointly hosting a ‘fireside chat’ networking event in London on the evening of Wednesday, September 13.
The event will feature a keynote interview with David Bianchi, founder of UK-born talent management company Various Artists Management, in addition to Various’ Head of Marketing & Promotions, Rebecca Dixon, speaking with MBW founder, Tim Ingham.
This interview will at least in part focus on data – and how Various uses different music industry metrics to guide its business and promotional decisions.
A very limited number of free tickets are now available for the event, which will take place at Tileyard, King’s Cross, London, from 5.30pm onwards.
Various Artists Management operates offices in both London and Los Angeles, with a talent roster that has racked up multiple billions of streams to date.
Artists represented by Various today include Ashnikko, Tom Grennan, The Libertines, La Roux, Melanie C, Supergrass, Cassyette, and Shed Seven.
London-headquartered music technology company Curve Royalty Systems serves over 1,000 labels and publishers worldwide and reports to have processed nearly $1 billion of revenue across 2.3 billion lines of data in 2022 alone.
“This discussion promises to illuminate the way data is out there in the real world – while providing a mini-masterclass in how Various Artists ensures that it’s guided, rather than misdirected, by information and analytics.”
Tom Allen, Curve Royalty Systems
Tom Allen, co-founder of Curve, said: “As long-term supporters of Music Business Worldwide, we’re delighted to team up for this special one-off event delving into the thorny topic of music industry data with Various Artists – one of the most influential and innovative companies working in UK music.
“The discussion between David, Rebecca, and Tim, promises to illuminate the way data is used out there in the real world – while providing a mini-masterclass in how Various ensures that it’s guided, rather than misdirected, by the ocean of information and analytics available in today’s industry.”
