Laurel Canyon Music
The idea for Laurel Canyon Music was born in May 2013 after a chance meeting at a Thea Gilmore concert at the Queen Elizabeth Hall on the Southbank. Inspired by the high quality of independent music at the gig and after meeting Welsh singer-songwriter Al Lewis afterwards, LCM founder Gary Smith knew he had discovered a very special part of the music world.
Although independent musicians are some of the best & most innovative in the industry, they often lack the promotion, support, contacts and encouragement that they richly deserved. Laurel Canyon Music was created as a co-operative music community, promoter and networking group to try and make a positive difference, in any way that it could.
The LCM group has helped to part finance a number of music projects since it was founded and in Sep 2015 organised the first in a series of showcase concerts at the historic St. Pancras Old Church in London. There are also plans to increase the scope of the group to include providing access to training courses/material and practical help for independent musicians. This will be by a new resource ´LCM Innovate´ and partnerships with trusted and proven organisations and groups with the same values and aims.
