  • Becky Hill has told Music Week that she is “unstoppable” as the campaign for her second full-length album ratchets up. Hill, a force of nature in dance music and beyond, stars on our cover for the first time, as we meet up to discuss her at times rocky ascent to the big leagues and find out why, after years of perhaps not getting the respect she clearly deserves, her time is now. Joined by Polydor president Ben Mortimer and long-time manager Alex Martin, Hill unveils her mission to make history and speaks candidly about what she has overcome, both in the industry and her personal life.
  • Jon Ollier is another straight talker operating at the top of his game, and this month the One Fiinix Live CEO takes on The Music Week Interview, four years after leaving CAA to go it alone with his own agency. In a wide-ranging conversation he talks Ed Sheeran, diversity, international expansion and more, while tackling key live sector issues including festival line-ups, ticket prices and the talent pipeline.
  • Also in the issue, with the Ivors taking place this month, we talk all things songwriting with YouTube’s global head of music Lyor Cohen, who is joined by head of songwriter relations Jenna Rubenstein and hitmaker Jin Jin, who was part of YouTube’s recent songwriting camp in partnership with the Ivors. Over six pages, all three outline YouTube’s mission to support songwriters and increase revenue for creators.
  • Joining them in another star-studded features line-up is Potter Payper who, not content with life as one of the UK’s favourite breakout MCs, is taking on the business with his 36 The Label operation. He tells us his story this month, letting rip on the ways in which the music industry needs to change and outlining what his growing organisation can do for artists. Elsewhere, we introduce Travis Beckford and his burgeoning business The Future Is, which is seeking to unearth a new generation of industry executives and creatives. The entrepreneur explains how he forged a path into the industry and speaks in no uncertain terms about his plans to make a mark. There’s all that, and much, much more!
