One of the UK’s leading lights in music industry innovation; Lightning In A Bottle has announced a unique opportunity for music artists and bands to have industry professionals Toby Jepson and Rob Town spend dedicated time with them, in person, for a limited number of workshops this December. Drawing on decades of experience being involved in the music industry as artists and businesses, collectively Toby and Rob have shared stages and worked with some of the biggest and most influential rock/metal artists in the world.
This is an amazing opportunity to work with two of the most talented and generous people in rock. With Toby and Rob you get the complete package – a deep understanding of machinery that drives the music industry along with tried and tested ability to write hit songs and produce career defining records. It you were looking for a leg up and you’re prepared to listen, take constructive criticism and work hard, then this is it. The real thing!
Set in rehearsal studios across the UK; Toby and Rob will examine first hand what musicians are trying to achieve with their music, and present on the spot ideas and strategies for improvement and development. Focusing on vision, creativity and song writing, these three hour workshops feature critical analysing of issues that artists face on a daily basis in the music industry.
This is a chance for musicians with serious aspirations to develop creative, practical solutions and discover new ways to approach their music career that can positively help distinguish and separate themselves from the pack. The workshops will help musicians get ahead with these experiences:
- Learn how to access and understand the modern music business.
- Practical help on how to unlock your music and creativity.
- Essential advice to help you sustain positive mental health and wellbeing whilst achieving your goals.
- Q&A session specifically tailored to your music career.
- Music industry stories and anecdotes from Toby Jepson (Wayward Sons/Little Angels) and Rob Town (Panic Cell/Stampede Press) drawing on their experiences from sharing stages and working with some of the biggest and most influential rock/metal artists in the world.

Lightning In A Bottle co-founder Toby Jepson says:
Being in a room, face to face, with bands and artists, working in the moment on their ideas is the single best way of getting to the heart of what can be achieved. These workshops will be fast and furious, an exchange of ideas designed to focus each act and fast track their creative goals and ambitions. It’s always the best approach; practical, hands on hard work that can produce quite startling results in a short space of time. For me, music should be fluid, inventive and free form, not constrained by convention. Igniting musicians and helping them see the possibilities is the most satisfying element of what we do.
Rob Town adds:
I can’t wait to do this! We’re in the age of expression, and the great news for music creatives is that there has never been a better or easier time to express yourself. However, the challenge for music artists and bands in the age of superfast digital development is to find their uniqueness in order for fans to discover them, pay real attention and truly fall in love with the music. We believe it all starts with conversation within ourselves and real human interaction and discussion in positive, creative spaces where sparks fly for the right reasons. These sessions are a great opportunity for musicians to discuss key music business strategies that are crucial to success and discover ways to sustain positive mental health and wellbeing, be happier, and embrace creativity more. Ultimately, these workshops are gamechangers for musicians looking to carve a career in the music industry.
