I am forever thankful for the love the music industry has for me and my work. I am blessed to live long enough to do the things I like to do. Even when i leave music on the side for other reasons, it comes back and grabs me now here we are again. Thank you all for the invitation to attend this year’s AGM (Annual General Meeting).
****THE AGM IS BY INVITATION ONLY****
AIM is gearing up once more to stage its annual business-defining AGM.
We are delighted to announce the return of Richard Russell, Founder of XL Recordings (home of Adele, M.I.A. and more), who will be in conversation with Simon Raymonde of Bella Union, bass player of The Cocteau Twins and AIM Board member. This will be ‘Part II’ of a fascinating discussion between Simon and Richard which we had to cut short in 2011 due to time constraints. They had so much to say – about life, music and creativity that we felt it would be entirely appropriate to invite them back.
