Producers have long been key players in the music industry.  And with a new generation of music producers stealing the limelight from artists, the profile of music producers appears to be stronger than ever.

The likes of Starsmith, Jamie xx and Alalal are following in the footsteps of big-name producers like Mark Ronson and Paul Epworth, while the line between artist and producer is becoming more and more blurred with the success of Skream, Magnetic Man and David Guetta.

As part of Generator’s new ‘Business of…’ series, this panel event looks at establishing yourself as a producer and generating revenue from your craft with comments from the panel who will also be taking questions from the floor to answer your queries.

•    Artists looking for producers

•    Studios to network with producers and emerging artists

Jonny Gray, Programme Assistant (Business Support) says:
“This is a great opportunity for regional bands and producers to meet and learn from the experiences of some of the most successful producers in the UK. We’re delighted to have Danton Supple, producer of Coldplay’s multimillion selling X&Y and Stephen Harris who produced Kaiser Chiefs debut album Employment, on this panel.

We also have producer managers Jill Hollywood and Ros Earls, who will offer a business perspective and explain how artists or new labels can approach a ‘name’ producer to help develop their sound and raise their profile.”
