Rob Dickins

Music Industry Legend

Music Business Royalty. Rob has been there, there and there and done it all! As a publisher, he signed talent such as Prince, Neil Young and the Sex Pistols, and moving into a label oversaw the releases of Madonna, Paul Simon and Seal.


Rob Dickins doesn’t disappoint….

Sign O’ The Times is a double album (having been first a triple, then a single), what Madonna’s really like, giving Rod Stewart singing lessons, getting stitched up by Doug Morris – he just keeps them coming. A significant moment comes early on. He’s recalling how he was offered the role of MD at Warner Music Publishing, aged just 23.

Rob set up his own entertainment company with Sony MusicInstant Karma, based in the West End of London. The labels first album release, How to Steal the World by Helicopter Girl, was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize album of the year award.

Dharma Music, his independent music publishing companymhave been used in major ad campaigns, such as Apple iPhone and TV and movie soundtracks, such as the title music for Shaun of the Dead.

It’s hard to imagine having a guest with a more broad impact in the Majors system, so we’re very pleased to share what it takes with you – the next generation of publishing and record label movers and shakers.
