TOM ROBINSON | BBC 6 MUSIC | “KEYNOTE TALK AND Q&A”
Tom will cover areas such as how to get your content to stand out on a tiny budget, making an album for £500, WTF music publishing is, how to get your music on TV, landing a sync deal, and finding the right manager amongst other key subjects he has learned throughout a long and distinguished career as a singer, songwriter and broadcaster.
RICH ORCHARD | DIRECTOR OF UK AND EUROPEAN MARKET DEVELOPMENT | CD BABY
“PREPARING YOUR MUSIC FOR A SUCCESSFUL RELEASE”
You can just make your music available or you can make your music connect. With tens of thousands of new releases every day across digital services, you need to plan for success. In this discussion, you’ll hear Rich reveal what they see working – and not working – right now for the music they distribute every day. You’ll walk away knowing how to prepare your next project for a successful launch and how to avoid catastrophic mistakes.
The #360RAW curated panel is in association with CD Baby and Independent Venue Week and is sponsored by CD Baby. The event will be hosted by ALAN RAW of BBC Introducing Humberside who, along with the promoter of the 360 Club Richard Watson, curates the highly successful #360RAW gigs that showcase the best emerging talent in the area. Tom Robinson will be staying for the gig, where he will join Alan Raw in selecting music from emerging acts to play throughout the evening.
Tickets have a refundable reservation charge of £5 per ticket to ensure attendance, which can be returned in cash on entry, or left at the door to be donated to Martin House Children’s Hospice music therapy room for the benefit of young people in their care. The refund is entirely optional and all non-refunded reservation fees will be donated to this great cause.

In 1977 their debut single 2-4-6-8 Motorway went Top 5 and became one of the landmark singles of the UK punk era. Other hits included Glad to Be Gay and Up Against the Wall, and the band’s debut album, Power in The Darkness, went gold in the UK and Japan. As a solo artist Tom had further hits in 1983 with War Baby and Atmospherics: Listen to The Radio, and co-wrote songs with Elton John, Peter Gabriel and Dan Hartman.
