Joe Sparrow

Music Business and Industry Placement Lecturer

Joe has run the influential new music blog ‘A New Band A Day’ since 2008 and works in a developmental role with new artists. This led to him being nominated for the ‘Indie Champion Award’ by the UK’s Association of Independent Music.

He’s particularly excited by music’s continued transition to the tech space, with extensive experience and a network of connections in the worlds of online music discovery, song distribution, and online artist services.

Joe has worked to organise and operate major live events at SXSW, The Great Escape and Tech Open Air; and has worked in music marketing, PR, and plugging.

He also occasionally pops up on UK national music radio as a guest and commentator, including half-hour takeovers of BBC 6 Music. Joe previously taught at BIMM Manchester.
