Basil Simon about Music2Deal
Any music business professional needs to be very careful of who he/she associates themselves with as credibility is everything in this industry. What Im about to tell you is so safe in relation to my credibility that I actually view it as a warm hearted free gift from me to you!
If you are looking for a well organised professionaly ran music business hub serious about connecting like minded music professionals globaly in order to maximise the potential of its clients careers, then Music2deal can simply NOT be ignored. I have in the earlier days of my career been very skeptical of online music business hubs who claim to be able to develop your career and make available the right connections. All to often it ends up being just another monthly revenue spinning exercise.
Experience has proven to me that Music2deal is the exception.
This organisation is ran by very well connected music business specialists who not only have a constant development/feedback program to improve the online experience of its valued members but also activley search the planet and individual territories in order to build good long lasting relationships with high level industry leaders in those countries. In my opinion Music2deal is leaps and bounds ahead of the rest and is without doubt the number 1 organisation in its field. It is the one stop place online for a complete and reliable music business experience like no other. Mario and his amazing team are passionate about what they do and have dedicated their lives to becoming your right hand online business support. The small fee they ask to help sustain their fantastic service is an easy decision considering the undoubtable benefits available.
Music2deal is the absolute nuts! It has become my favorite, and the first choice as my preferred online music business community. It feels like home! I look forward to meeting you there very soon.

Charles Foskett is an immensely talented musician/composer/producer, with a wealth of experience having worked in many areas of the industry. He has worked with a host of different artists throughout his career including two Beatles, Paul and Ringo.
Charles was responsible for putting together THE ANTI HEROIN PROJECT, a Band Aid for the anti drug campaign, which not only resulted in a double album entitled "Its a Live in World" but also the offer of a top position at the home office in London, working as David Mellor's right hand man. Charles declined the offer with preferences to pop music over politics ! The album, which featured a huge number of famous names from the world of rock and pop, consisted of thirty tracks, twelve of which Charles wrote and co-wrote and fifteen of which he produced. The album was released by EMI and Charles was responsible not only for the original idea, the writing and production, but also for bringing together hundreds of big names for a worthy cause.

Charles is a mine of creative talent. He is an artist, working mainly in oil paint, and one of his works was recently accepted for the Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy. He is also in the process of writing an autobiography entitled "Ashtray On a Motorbike" . The stories promise to be hilariously funny accounts of life attempting to climb the ladder of success, anecdotal tales of his escapades over the years with many famous people from not only the world of pop music but also film.
Stuart Epps' musical career began in 1967 as a 15-year old office junior at Dick James Music. He quickly moved up the industry ladder to become Chief Engineer at DJM Studios, then later toured the USA with Elton John as personal assistant.
Stuart was involved from the start when Elton's producer, the late Gus Dudgeon, built The Mill Studios on the banks of the Thames, near Maidenhead. It was not long before Dudgeon asked Epps to become Chief Engineer, Studio Manager and Producer.
In recent years he has continued to work with big name artists to great acclaim, as well as helping a host of promising new and up-and-coming artists to sound their best, both on demo recordings and in full studio productions.
