Seascale entrepreneur Josh Murphy helps the music industry turn around
A MAN of Seascale is taking a unique initiative to improve the music industry in a very practical way.
Josh Murphy, 22, is playing a proactive role in reviving the music industry by helping it grow from Covid 19 and adapt to the pandemic.
After seeing the incredible amount of damage done to the music industry and after going through the changes brought about by the virus itself, you can see why.
Mr Murphy said: “I finished my last year of college in a 100% online work environment and I don’t want that for the music industry.
“We’re a very practical industry that relies on networking and relationships, so it’s about helping musicians and music companies adapt to changing work environments. ”
In 2020, more than 30% of jobs in the music industry were lost due to Covid-19, with the arts and entertainment industry being one of the sectors most affected by the pandemic.
Having contributed £ 5.8bn to the UK economy in 2019, the music industry plays a major role in helping the UK recover from Covid-19.
One of the ways it helps the music industry is to manage musicians and bands with contemporary strategies and techniques, helping them achieve their goals and ambitions while navigating a post-pandemic environment.
In addition to this, the music industry practitioner helps venues, record labels, public relations companies and many more promote themselves and improve the interpersonal relationships between musicians and music companies.
Mr Murphy added: “I want to work closely with members of the music industry, to contribute to their careers and to help music industry professionals get out of Covid-19.
“The only way I see the industry recovering from Covid-19 is to collaborate and understand how we can work together.”
