I am a musician. Having graduated with a BMus in 2002 I went on to postgraduate study (composition for TV & Film) and performed as part of an international arts event (London, Edinburgh, Berlin) through a connection as University. I have worked as a pianist in primary education, been a drummer in various bands, and accompanied singers and songwriters. I'm also a part time composer and working on a music theatre / musical / opera project in my spare time.
I’m very curious and I love asking questions, listening, learning and sharing what I’ve learnt. I relish helping people (musicians, entrepreneurs / startups, businesses) to connect online. I have been an active user of Facebook since 2007 (c4000 friends), Twitter since 2009 (22k @rupertcheek, 11k @pianotalent) and LinkedIn (13k connections). I have maintained and developed Cheeky Promo, the music community I established in January 2013, for the last 4 years. Particular highlights have included connecting with, meeting, promoting and hearing 2 blind classical pianists from Buenos Aires perform in London, meeting former Freakpower member Ashley Slater and promoting his band Kitten And The Hip, and helping to arrange the inaugural Open Piano Competition. I’ve grown the @CheekyPromo twitter account to 45K followers. The Cheeky Promo groups have 4400 members on Google+ and 300 members on LinkedIn. 3500 people follow Cheeky Promo on Instagram, 4500 follow on Pinterest, 1500 on Soundcloud and the Tumblr & Youtube accounts are both growing. I use Co-Promote, Roundteam and Drumup to help to build Twitter accounts. Producing written interviews involves creativity, research, proof reading (attention to detail), using email as well as web design & organisation. I’m organising an arts festival in London to raise money for London's Air Ambulance and Nordoff Robbins. I’m very interested in the startup eco-system, and enjoy watching / listening to podcasts such as This Week In Startups. I enjoyed attending events at Campus London, The Collective Partners’ ‘Den’ and looking round WeWork in Moorgate. I studied music for many years; including piano from the age of 5 - 22. I graduated with a BMus and studied composition as a post graduate. I loved playing drums in bands. Cheeky Promo is a music promoter based in the UK, working predominantly online to help musicians in any way we can. My name is Rupert Cheek. I live in London, UK and run a music promotion business called CheekyPromo. If you'd like some help to promote your music, startup or business, please let me know.
