Frank Wilkes (Kycker)

Frank Wilkes is Founder & CEO at Kycker – an artist development platform that offers digital distribution, royalty collection and industry opportunities such as showcases and sync placements.

It can only be done by really, really boring dull things like you need to have a plan - Frank Wilkes

My guest this week, on episode 2, worked as the Artist Development Coordinator at Higher Rhythm in Doncaster for a number of years before founding his label, DMF Digital that is part of the Yorkshire Music Forum – who are one of the PRS Foundation’s Talent Development Partners.

Frank Wilkes is also Founder & CEO at Kycker – an artist development platform that offers digital distribution, royalty collection and industry opportunities such as showcases and sync placements.

Due to this being recorded in April 2020 with the country on lockdown, Frank wasn’t able to get hold of a mic so we recorded his side of the conversation on his laptop mic which meant the quality was a bit hit and miss but I hope it doesn’t distract too much and you can still enjoy listening to Episode 2 of the Indie Music Marketing podcast with Frank Wilkes.
