Damian Keyes

Founder, DK Music Management

Damian graduated from music college at 19 and then joined the core team that grew the same college from 50 students to 800 before leaving at 23 to set up The Brighton Institute of Modern Music (BIMM). This is now one of the most successful independent music colleges in the world valued at an excess of £60M. He also founded DK Music Management which is the UK’s largest commercial band management company. He’s continued to invest in companies since before deciding to take this forward by creating an online project to help musicians and bands with social media for building an audience online, speaking on subjects such as content creation, influencer marketing, fan engagement and so on. Damian continues to create daily content online as well as regularly doing public speaking, personal social media tutoring and writing a book on how to break the rules in social media.
