SKINNY PELEMBE – A SONG FOR SOUTH YORKSHIRE


We have worked alongside Sound UK, Doncaster Music Education Hub and Youth Music as part of a national project which involved joint commissioning a brand new musical work by Skinny Pelembe, Field Notes #2.

Performing the piece has involved a host of young musicians from the Doncaster Youth Swing Orchestra and Rainbow Connection Choir. Inspired by conversations with social workers and nurses, Skinny Pelembe’s Song for South Yorkshire premiered online on 23rd March.

This national music project, A Song for Us, led by Sound UK, was developed by Sound UK to mark this historic time and celebrates our communities and the power of music to bring us together. Leading singer-songwriters and composers Skinny PelembeSeth LakemanThis Is The Kit & Bucky and Gwenno have created the first in a series of fifteen County Songs.

ABOUT SKINNY PELEMBE: Skinny Pelembe is a multi-talented wonder, born in Johannesburg and raised in Doncaster. He released debut album Dreaming Is Dead Now in May 2019, with support from BBC 6 Music’s, BBC Radio 1 and Worldwide FM. In 2020 Blue Note asked some of the top British names in music to rework songs from their legendary back catalog. Skinny’s version of Andrew Hill’s cult classic Illusion was chosen as one of the singles from the Blue Note Reimagined album. His varied approach to his influences started early on. His two older brothers were heavily into hip-hop, while he would also absorb the West Coast folk and country music played by his dad. The former influences the way he thinks about his lyrics. The latter has continued to inform the way he writes songs. Listen to Skinny Pelembe’s music below. skinnypelembe.com

How to release your music and get paid event at Cafe Indiependent

PRS for Music, The Musicians’ Union and Higher Rhythm are delighted to invite you to ‘How To Release Your Music and Get Paid’.

About this Event

Now more than ever before, musicians and artists are taking a DIY approach to creating, releasing and exploiting their music. Some are self-releasing now with hopes of securing a future record deal, but others see it as a long-term strategy for their careers. Either way, if you are planning to release your own music then it’s vital you understand some fundamentals about the way the music industry works and how your music can generate revenue.

19.00 – Doors Open

19.15 – 20.15 – Mind Your Own Business

In this session, The Musicians’ Union will explain how record labels and music publishers make their money and how independent artists can do the same.

Topics covered:

• Copyright law and protecting your work

• The difference between Master Rights and Publishing Rights (PRS, MCPS and PPL)

• The business models behind record labels and music publishers (and how that applies to you)

• Artists agreements and performers’ permissions you need to secure before you can release

20.15 – 20.30 – Break

20.30 – 21.30 – How To Get the Most from PRS Membership

In this session, PRS for Music will take you through the practicalities of self service using the PRSfM website.

Topics covered:

• How to register or amend works

• How to search the PRSfM works database

• How to report performance usage

• How to claim unpaid royalties

This evening will conclude with networking drinks.

Attendance to this event is free, but numbers are limited so it’s essential you book a space if you wish to come along.

If you have any questions or specific access requirements, please email PRS for Music at education@prsformusic.com.

We look forward to seeing you there.
