With Midem being the biggest international and most well known music conference and exhibition, it is no surprise that Richard Hingley an independent Singer Songwriter from London feels that it is the right time to make his first visit to Cannes.
"After a huge response to the launch of my website http://www.richardhingley.com, I feel it is the next stage in promoting myself to the music industry executives that travel to the show," comments Hingley. "One of the hardest things about being an Independent artist is exposure and distribution for traditional non digital download music such as CD's."
Hingley who is in the middle of recording his first solo album entitled "and back to me..." is anxious that he reaches out to an International audience and with nearly 10,000 music executives from 92 countries participating the Midem conference and exhibition it is an obvious choice to attend.
"I intend to try and make as many relevant contacts as possible in the fields of Artist Management, Agents, distributors, and of course record companies themselves with the view in expanding my Live work and trying to get a distribution deal for my new album". Hingley added.
MIDEM attracts independent and major record companies, music publishers, online & traditional distributors, live music professionals, A&R executives, agents, producers, promoters, import/exporters, manufacturers, service companies, retailers, attorneys and rights organisations.
This quality of participants makes it a magnet for music buyers from other fields and industries, including technology, advertising, video game companies and film and TV producers. MIDEM also attracts the world’s radio, print, online and TV media.
Hingley will be based on the British Pavillion (stand 19.01) or to arrange a meeting please call +44 7768 210420
