SPECTRUM Seminar: How to Put a Record Out

This event has moved to Brighton Museum Lab (enter via Brighton Dome). All tickets held are still valid.

So you’ve made a record. Now what?

Brighton-based label and industry veterans Tru Thoughts (Bonobo, Alice Russell, Hot 8 Brass Band) talk us through the next steps for a song after it’s been recorded in the studio. How do you get a song played on the radio, used in TV programmes and movies, or used as part of a major ad campaign?

In the first SPECTRUM seminar of the season, Tru Thoughts founders Paul Jonas and Robert Luis lead a discussion with the rest of their team about the work that goes into promoting recorded music, and how this can be translated for self-releasing artists.

Q&A session will follow.

Tea and Coffee will be provided.

Paul Jonas – Label Manager and Co-Owner
Robert Luis – A&R and Co-Owner
Hannah Petter – Press Officer
Dale Jones – Digital and Content Manager
Josh Dowler – Social Media Manager
