“We are delighted to be part of the MusicTank initiative. Cross-industry collaboration and wider education are vital to the continued success of the British music business. As the representative body for British songwriters, composers and music publishers, the majority of whom are small and medium-sized enterprises, we are particularly pleased that the MusicTank portal will provide access and information for small businesses.”

“The Musicians’ Union welcomes the Music Tank initiative and believes it represents a genuine opportunity to assist those hoping to survive and succeed in the modern music industry.”
Nigel McCune, Music Business Adviser, Musicians’ Union
“MusicTank’s philosophy is to share knowledge. Nobody knows everything but having an information network that can feed upwards, downwards, sideways and across all sectors – can only be a fantastic springboard for our future generation of creators. “The UK music industry is the third largest market in the world, and second only to the US in terms of ownership of repertoire. Education should be free and initiatives like this with full trade body support and government funding through the LDA will ensure we continue to punch above our weight.”
Maggie Crowe, External and Educational Affairs, BPI
“This is going to be an important element in bringing new ideas and people to our industry, at a time when both will be most welcome.”
Doug D’Arcy, AIM Board Member and former President, Chrysalis Dedicated
