Seamless Entertainment launch Music industry Mentoring program & Courses for people pursuing a career in the music industry!
Entertainment can be very difficult to navigate, so the team is launching masterclasses & mentoring services to help artists, bands, and creatives push on!
Throughout the pandemic, the Seamless team wanted to create new energy and thinking across the entertainment space, with the launch and broadcast of The Entertainment Engine podcast, providing a new show for the entertainment industry — the next stage for the company is to launch a series of entertainment learning;
“Music mentoring, Consultancy services and Courses — to help creatives navigate the entertainment industry”
Peter Moore, Director of Seamless was working with the UK Government, creating NEW Deal for the Media, at the same time the UK Government introduced and launched NEW Deal for Musicians.
They were looking to create the next BIG act, through the ’90s, but after looking at the New Deal for Musicians program, it became clear with the introduction of New Deal for the Media, providing young people 16–24 years old (male & female) the opportunity to explore allied industries, which opened up more opportunities.
The thinking behind New Deal for the Media is if you don't make it as the next BIG act, you have the opportunity to learn; music management, how to set up a record company to becoming a music publicist, etc.
The New Deal for the Media program was so successful winning “entrepreneur” of the year 2 years running with the IOD (Insitute of Directors & Hewlett Packard).
There is so much information to take in and learn across the entertainment industry, so with the success of NEW Deal, the team at Seamless decided to help the creative sector follow their aspiration in the music industry.
So let's take a closer look;
It is the team’s passion to inspire the next music industry professionals, to deliver exceptional music industry, advice, knowledge, and support for our clients through a seamless service.

Having spent most of my life putting on shows from grassroots to festivals & shows for the past two decades, one of the things that sprung to mind for me was the lack of knowledge and information I had at my fingertips when looking at becoming a “music promoter” it was a challenge that was for sure!
