I am editor of CMU – or Complete Music Update to give it its full name. We generally just say CMU. It’s quicker. Although not if you spend ages explaining it like this.

CMU launched in 1998, although I didn’t join until 2008, becoming editor the following year. My main role is to oversee production of our news and features content, published every weekday in the CMU Daily email and on our website. I also co-present a weekly music business podcast, Setlist.

In addition to the editorial content that I am in charge of, CMU has training and consultancy departments, and also regularly runs events for music industry professionals and independent musicians.
