He is co-Founder and MD of CMU, a company that helps people navigate and understand the music business. It does this through media like the CMU Daily bulletin, Setlist podcast and CMU Trends library; through consultancy unit CMU Insights with its training courses, conference sessions and research reports; and through education programme CMU:DIY, which supports early-career artists and future industry talent.

He delivers speed briefings at music conferences around the world; guest lectures at various UK music colleges; runs regular seminars for Sony Music, BPI, MMF, MU and IMRO; and curates the core conference strands at The Great Escape showcase festival in Brighton each May. He also wrote the acclaimed book ‘Dissecting The Digital Dollar’ explaining how the streaming business works.

CMU is part of Chris’s business 3CM UnLimited, which champions and supports the music, media, culture and communication industries through publications, consultancy, educational initiatives and live events. Through UnLimited he also publishes cultural recommendations service ThisWeek London and its sister magazine ThreeWeeks at the Edinburgh Festival; and teaches for award winning PR training charity the Taylor Bennett Foundation, which is enabling more ethnic diversity in the communications industry.
