As the leading independent charity for musicians, we’re proud to announce an exciting new initiative and dedicated office for Northern Ireland.
The organisation’s Director of External Affairs, Christine Brown, will lead the new HMNI brand as NI Director.
Christine will be joined by Nikki MacRae, who will act as NI Development Officer and be based at Belfast’s Oh Yeah Centre, and Music Producer and Manager, Declan Legge, best-known as manager of Jealous of the Birds and Silences. The team will work to enable HMNI to quickly react to the ever-changing needs of the industry and support local emerging talent.
The launch of this ground-breaking initiative took place on November 3 which was followed by a range of activities that brought together local artists, music industry activity and the wider community.
