Join us for an online conversation around Men's Mental Health in the music industry this Thursday 18th June at 4 pm.

Simon Phillips, a member of ICMP's Student Wellbeing & Disability team, will be in conversation with Ellie Giles*, an artist & producer manager at Step Music MGMT for #MensMentalHealthWeek.

Ellie will be sharing her experience as a manager, especially her time with Bill Ryder-Jones, one of the few male artists who publicly opened up about mental health struggles.

The stigma around men's mental health is real; our hope is to start an open and ongoing conversation with our student and alumni community, especially those identifying as men. 
By bringing Ellie's personal experience to the table, as well as Simon's advice as a disability adviser, we hope to inspire young artists to come forward and be open about their mental health. 

Please note booking is essential.


*Ellie worked as a promoter at the beginning of her career, eventually doing a good stint (7 years) in A&R at Fiction/Polydor, where she worked with such artists as White Lies and Ellie Goulding. The last 8 years have been dedicated to the management of artists and producers, having started Step Music management, her own company 5 years ago. Managing people such as Adam Noble (Liam Gallagher/Biffy Clyro), Bill Ryder - Jones, Erland Cooper and Warmduscher. She is also an MMF board member.
