You’ll come away with an enhanced view of the innate possibilities you have towards achieving targets and goals outside of your expected range and skillset, even during a global pandemic. Nat will help you reinforce self-confidence towards achieving more in your short to mid-term prospects.
Artist & Label Management With Kevin Knapp And Matt Tolfrey (17th June 19:30 BST)
Kevin Knapp and Matt Tolfrey have a decade and a half of friendship together and even more experience in the music industry. They first worked together 10 years ago on a record for the label, Murmur. Knapp then went to feature on Tolfrey’s debut album and they’ve been great friends ever since.
This long-standing relationship has now led to Tolfrey managing not only Nnapp’s new label Plump but Kevin himself.
