Digital media for musicians seminar and video

On 8 October Steve Lawson was our guest speaker at a “Digital Music for Musicians” seminar held in Leeds at the Belgrave Music Hall. A fascinating three hours and some great insights into how jazz artists can use social media to their best advantage. At the end of the afternoon we grabbed a few minutes with Steve to get some of his advice on video so that we could share the information more widely.

In the clip below Steve talks about the 3 ‘C’s of social media, Bandcamp and how to use social media as an introverted artist.

      Hi Keith, the seminar ran over 3 hours and more informal than a presentation / talk so filming not practical. Thanks for the Bandcamp interview link.

        Ok, can see three hours too long, but five minutes.

        I am unable to access the video, all I get is a blank screen.

          Maybe try the non HD version option? Plays OK on the embedded version on your blog.
