After a successful start to Industry Takeover, with a sold-out January seminar, February is set to be even bigger. The second seminar, of 2017's series, 'Getting Started and Building a Team' will guide you through the music industry. Brand new artists need to make things happen for themselves by adopting a DIY approach at the outset of their careers. How do they make recordings, get them distributed, capture a fan base and build a team on a budget? We'll be joined by CMU's Chris Cooke, who will be hosting the event, with guest speakers: Jamila Scott, Will Spencer and Shaurav D’Silva.
