Stand out from the Crowd: Storytelling for Musicians

In the modern age of the internet, we are inundated with new music - Spotify alone uploads approximately 20,000 new songs per day to the streaming service. So how can you stand out amongst the crowd? What do you need in your toolbox to get your music heard, play listed and discovered? A good STORY. Storytelling has become one of the most important tools in the world of marketing - from creating narratives to building out social media campaigns. However, not every story lodges itself in your memory or moves you emotionally. In an industry driven by emotional expression through music, why not carry that over into the business side of things as well? We will cover the basics to create a good story and delve further into the world of transmedia storytelling to learn a few tips and tricks to build a cohesive story across the myriad of communication channels at our fingertips.

Presenter: Magdalena Jensen - Chimes Agency, Poland
