About Us

“How do you build your career in the music industry and improve your chances of success?”

Big changes are taking place in the music industry not least of all because of lockdowns. As a creative there has probably never been a better time to make quality new music and promote it on your OWN terms.

But nobody produces a piece of music, records it or puts on a gig without the help and support of others. And few creatives have the time, skills or experience to produce their work or market it as effectively as they would like.

So how do you build your career and improve your chances of success?

Unless you are one of the lucky few the best answer is to build a genuinely supportive team around you – in other words, to network.

Meetings after Lockdown

We are delighted to announce that regular meetings are to return to Bristol Beacon from Wednesday 1st September 2021 from 12.00pm to 14.00pm. Some safety measures may be expected. Full agenda and details available soon. Contact us on info@bmin.co.uk and we will add you to our secure mail list.

Don’t forget to interact with us via the Facebook Page and Group in the meantime.

We are currently looking at plans to set up permanent online meetings on alternate months as part of our growth strategy. Expect the first one in October 2021. Prior to the meetings starting again in September we will continue to support our members through networking as best we can (contact info@bmin.co.uk). Louder Together!
