The Black Music Coalition (BMC) is set to launch its own membership scheme that connects all executives working in the UK music industry. The groundbreaking organisation was founded in 2020 and aims to enforce positive change by creating a more equitable music industry for professionals.

Since their inception, the BMC has become a trusted and respected voice within the music business, holding events at Abbey Road Studios and the Royal Albert Hall. The coalition hopes to create long lasting change around the racial disparities within the music industry.

In a statement from their executive committee, BMC state:

“Our membership launch presents a vital next stage for the BMC; membership will create a connected community of music industry employees and professionals. As an organisation we are excited to roll out our activations for next year which, in keeping with all we do, will be geared towards the needs of all our members” 

Alex Boateng, co-founder of 0207 Def Jam and BMC member, added:

“The music industry is far richer and benefits greatly from having Black culture via artists & executives in its purest form, the work the BMC does to protect that is essential & it’s a pleasure to be involved. The opening of membership across the industry will allow even more executives to benefit from the vital work the organisation does and also have a voice in the industry which up to now has been missing.”
