News: Resonate Music Conference Announce First Wave Of Speakers

RESONATE, Scotland’s music conference event for industry professionals, musicians, students, fans and aspiring artists, today announces the first wave of guest speakers for the open-to-all event at Platform, Glasgow on Thursday, November 24.

This sixth edition of the event is supported by an incredible array of partners including LAST NIGHT FROM GLASGOW, SPOTIFY, SCOTTISH MUSIC INDUSTRY ASSOCIATION, DAACI, TICKETTAILOR, MUSICIANS’ UNION, CD BABY, BMI and STEINBERG.

Their keynote speaker is icon Nemone Metaxas, founder of the award-winning BBC 6Music show Journeys In Sound. Her Electric Ladyland show has been a staple on the BBC for over 15 years and has played a pivotal role in unearthing electronic talent. The broadcaster and qualified psychotherapist will discuss her expansive career, being a vocal champion for mental health issues, supporting talent in marginalized groups of society and much more.

On hosting duties they have BBC Introducing Phoebe Inglis-Holmes, who starred in our Sound Of The Underground session at Resonate 2021.

Nemone said: “I am genuinely thrilled that Resonate have asked me to be a part of their fantastic conference. I can’t wait to be back in Glasgow this November to give the keynote speech, as part of such a diverse line up, and to share my journey through, and thoughts on, music and psychotherapy!”

World-leading industry heavyweights such as Spotify, Bandcamp, Steinberg, Nordoff-Robbins, Wasserman Music and the BBC are represented across our panels, with award-winning composer Hannah Peel, Spotify’s Lucy Blair, Steinberg master mixer and engineer Andrew Sappo, Codie Childs of Playstation Studios, Aly Guillani of Bandcamp, Cecilia Chan of Wasserman – manager of LF System, Mark Ronson and Above and Beyond – Glasvegas manager Denise Allan, Nordoff-Robbins supremo Donald MacLeod, Nick Cronin of Vagrant Real Estate and Bright Things PR’s Jess Partridge.

The 2022 event as always will strive to promote an ethos of collaboration, creativity, accessibility and development to music industry professionals and enthusiasts in Scotland and beyond. The conference is known for its welcoming atmosphere and commitment to providing a safe, accessible space which can be enjoyed by all.

Billy Kiltie, founder, said: “This is the sixth year of Resonate, we are hugely excited by this year’s excellent array of speakers and panellists. We continue to learn and create for and with music practitioners throughout Scotland.

“This is a day for producers, musicians, fans and anyone who loves music and wants to know more about what we do and how we do it.

“Whether you just like listening to tunes or bands and are curious, or you’re a student looking to break into the industry, or an experienced producer, band or musician who wants to understand the industry better, Resonate is for you.

“Thank you to all our partners for sticking with us over the years, and to Platform for welcoming us back for the second year.”

RESONATE makes a return this year to its host venue PLATFORM. The city centre venue is just minutes walk from transport hubs and also boasts the accolades of a Bronze Green Tourism Award in addition to being a fully accessible venue.

PLATFORM provides the perfect space for RESONATE’s quality and diverse programme which includes panels, workshops, 1-2-1 sessions and ample opportunity for networking. The programme culminates in a specially curated Resonate Live line-up which celebrates the strength and depth of Scotland’s musical landscape. Applications are now open for artists to put their best (musical) foot forward and be considered to perform at Resonate Live.

Having cemented itself as a staple event in the national music calendar, RESONATE continues to provide opportunities for collaboration, creativity, accessibility and development. More driven than ever, this conference aims to provide the music community with a programme of exceptionally qualified speakers, exemplary activities and safe spaces for musicians and music industry professionals to speak honestly about challenges and opportunities facing them right now.
