    Cassell The Beatmaker launches "In The Making"

    Team Protection Racket’s Ivor Novello award winning music producer, song writer & drummer Cassell The Beatmaker has launched ‘In The Making’, an artist development scheme designed to help unsigned musicians take control of their career.

    Cassell and his experienced team will be offering support and guidance on all aspects of the music industry designed to further develop the prospects and career of the artist whilst guiding them to greater success.

    The ITM scheme includes song writing sessions, music production, recordings, branding, image consultancy, social media management, promotional videos and funding campaigns.

    Two artists who have already benefited from ITM are Deacon and Josh Barry. Both artists are part of the scheme and recently entered an emerging talent competition hosted by Glastonbury Festival. Out of 5,000 entrants, both artists reached the final of nine acts, with Josh Barry declared the winner by a panel of judges, going on to receive a cheque of £5,000 as well as receiving a slot on one of Glastonbury's main stages this coming June.
