    Welcome back and here is the final Behind the Music Business Podcast of 2021. I am going to take a break for the rest of the year from releasing episodes but I am hoping to come back in 2022 with brand new conversations with some amazing music industry professionals.

    To round things off for 2021 and for my 65th episode I have the founder and CEO of UK based independent music publisher Max Music Publishing Max Odell as my guest this week. We talked about all things music publishing and the specifics behind the ethos that he has taken into his company since he launched it 4 years ago.

    I found this chat very inspiring as I am currently taking a similar plunge into the world of music publishing at this very moment as Max did back in 2017 so it was really interesting and informative hearing how and why he did what he has done and how well he has done it.

    Dee Adam (Songwriter/Producer)

    This week's episode is a conversation about songwriting with professional songwriter Dee Adam. I know Dee from our time together at peermusic and I am immensely grateful that she found the time in her schedule to talk to me. I always like talking to songwriters about how they do their thing.

    Dee herself is a writer and producer who has worked with a whole host of household names including Dido, Mel C and The Kaiser Chiefs to name a few. Following a run of success in 2019 and 2020, 2021 and beyond will see more releases with names such as Jack Wins, Nonõ, Lo Steppa, iiola and Flux Pavilion.

    Check out more of Dee’s tracks via the link below and I hope you enjoy our conversation.

    Ellie Giles (Step Music Management)

    Here is one of my favourite of all the episodes that I have done of this podcast. A chat with artist and producer manager Ellie Giles.

    Ellie has had an amazing career in A&R and management for the best part of 20 years and set up her company Step Management in 2018.
    This was an amazing chat about the creative side of the business, about A&R in general and as a female in the industry and Ellie was amazingly honest and candid about how she operates and what she looks for in the business.

    Check out all her links below to find out more about her roster and do make sure to listen to Erland Coopers releases from this year, they are incredible.

    The big 6-0. 60 episodes and counting. To some that probably means very little but I’m pretty proud that I have got here all on my own.
    This episode is with yet another Uni of Hertfordshire alumni. Graham was part of the group that I was involved with at Uni. We had a wonderful time and have remained firm friends 10+ years on from when we graduated.
    Graham is now one of the regional Officers (for London) at the Musicians Union. So if you are based around the capital and have an issue and are a member then he will be your go to guy.
    It was great to talk to him about the amazing work that the MU does, especially during this rather taxing times for musicians. As well as talking to him about his journey to where he is and what got him here.
    I hope you enjoy it.
