New Slang was founded by writer and music strategist Chris Price [*abandons third-person pretence*]. I specialise in curation and editorial for radio, streaming services, music television, brands and labels, working at the collision course of broadcast and webcast music content. Which is a fancy way of saying I help ears find music. Have a look at my client base over there in the sidebar.
I’ve worked in music media for fifteen years, most recently as Head of Music for online music discovery service Last.fm. Prior to that I devised music strategy for MTV’s nine UK music channels, after six years programming BBC Radio 1 and five years in marketing and distribution roles for Sony Music Entertainment and Warner Music Group. Somewhere in there I found time to write a travel book with my pal Joe Harland. It’s called Live Fast, Die Young: Misadventures in Rock & Roll America and you can buy by it clicking on the cover art over there.
When I’m not writing, speaking or consulting about curation strategy for broadcast and streamed music media, I’m a proud trustee of the National Foundation for Youth Music, supporting music-making projects for children in challenging circumstances.
And if you’re wondering about the company name …
