Mike Burgess

Artist Development/Careers Team

Mike has built a reputation as a seasoned music industry advisor and facilitator, a position that has come about from working first-hand within multiple industry roles, strategically developing both people and products for the music industry.

As a creative, he’s remixed for Top 40 artists including Skepta, released music on leading labels such as Black Butter Records and toured all over the world as a DJ. As an industry exec, Mike has worked with the likes of BBC 1Xtra, Universal Music and Relentless Energy, during which he has managed multiple projects which have racked up millions of streams.

Mike’s current focus is operating the popular online industry advice service, Sound with Mike, which sees him advise and support a wealth of creatives and industry execs across the world, making him the perfect addition to BIMM Manchester’s Artist Development team, where he has worked with a number of their success stories (including Pale Waves, Phoebe Green and Corella).

Mike’s passion is helping creatives to build small, independent and future-proof businesses, without necessarily needing the assistance of a manager, agent or label.
