MUSIC INDUSTRY INSIDE OUT
A PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT COMMUNITY
Music Industry Inside Out is the brainchild of music industry veteran, Martine Cotton. Launched in late 2014 on the back of running extensive regional workshops for musicians for QMusic, Martine swiftly recognised a dire need for a powerful, easy-to-use online resource that allowed emerging and practicing professionals to gain access to the industry's best in order to become their best. And, with over 25 years in the industry, Martine was perfectly positioned to tap her powerful industry network on the so-called shoulder to provide practical advice and in-depth insights that ultimately, in her view, make for a stronger, more sustainable industry now and for years to come.
"There are so many barriers to career longevity in the music industry and I had to use my decades of experience and relationships to remove one of the biggest - access to the industry's leading figures," said Martine.
"It can take years to build up your network of contacts and understand how all aspects of the music business work. Giving unlimited access to current, best practice across all facets of the biz is so powerful in building a well-informed, thriving career and industry as a whole."
From running and booking one of the country's most iconic venues, The Zoo and being program manager for key industry body QMusic to working on events and conferences like Splendour In The Grass, BIGSOUND, Little BIGSOUND, Queensland Music Awards and unconvention, there's very little about this industry Martine doesn't know!
Her immense experience and undying passion for the local scene has led Martine to develop Australia's leading online professional development resource for the music industry.
