“ConnectsMusic is a communal service which helps us all … whether we are an artist or a manager or a promoter. It’s the perfect antidote to the unwanted divisions in our society by virtue of its sharing nature and positivity.”
“Just as the primary genre it supports, from very important initial connections and in a relatively short space of time it has developed into a great forum facilitating fantastic creativity (in the U.K. and further afield) and it continues to expand and evolve. This should be encouraged as it benefits all involved with every aspect of the music.”
Composer, arranger, producer, musical director & saxophonist
“ConnectsMusic/JazzConnects is one of the most comprehensive places on the net for Jazz Promo. The Ivors Academy was represented at leading jazz trade fair, Jazz Ahead, held annually in Bremen, having been invited to join the ground-breaking UK organisation ConnectsMusic/JazzConnects, setup by Emily Saunders. A huge thank you to Emily for making it happen and including so many Academy members, commissioners & potential members.”
