Creative Music Hub CIC

Creative Music Hub CIC is located at Studio 54 Exeter which is also home to other music industry organisations such as Academy of Music & Sound, AMSonline, Circadian Music Group, Daylight Music Productions and Studio 54 Recording Studio.


With fewer opportunities than elsewhere in the UK for talented artistes and creatives to showcase their talents, we organise events to help them achieve their career aspirations and to ultimately produce ‘home-grown’ talent from the South West. We organise networking events giving artistes and creatives the opportunity to meet with producers, publishers, record labels, music lawyers and other industry professionals who are key to artistes and creatives careers. We produce guidance for artistes and creatives through online courses, videos and webinars with a particular focus on ‘how to progress your career as a creative’ from the South West. For these artistes and creatives, we endeavour to increase confidence, practical (and vocational skills especially if undertaking validated courses), social skills and opportunities to succeed in the music and performing arts industry. We carefully select talented artistes and creatives and together with our industry partners help develop them in state of the art recording and music video production studios, live performance venues and industry training programmes
