SAE London is pleased to invite you to a masterclass with Award-Winning Rapper and Manga Author ShaoDow.
SAE House - Lecture Theatre 2
The DiY Gang Master Class is an interactive conversation that lifts the lid on making a full-time living from music, delivered by an artist who has gone through the ups and downs – and yet is coming out on top.
Focusing on topics such as merchandising, planning a tour, time management, protecting your mental health, getting radio play, networking, making money and more, this is your chance to bring your burning questions and join ShaoDow as he reveals an honest insight into a life where your passion is your business.
ShaoDow says: “I hope to leave you feeling inspired with solid advice that you can apply directly to your own music career."
Audience participation is advised and encouraged.
ShaoDow (Shaa-ow-dough) is a professional rapper, manga author and possible ninja.
Equipped with a law degree and having studied Shaolin Kung Fu in China, ShaoDow utilises the tenacity and determination he learned from his martial arts training to independently forge his music career.
It’s little wonder ShaoDow scooped the 2017 AIM Award for Hardest Working Artist – he has self-released three albums, which have sold more than 25,000 copies, created a headphones brand and published a book through his own company, DiY Gang Entertainment. The London-born artist makes a full-time living from his music, manga and merchandise and has even appeared on ITV's Ninja Warrior UK. He was recently invited into Parliament to speak on behalf of grassroots music venues across the country.
ShaoDow has opened for the likes of Wiley, Ghetts, Stormzy, Skepta and more, while his live shows have taken him across the UK, Europe and Asia. A truly unique Fire in the Booth with Charlie Sloth is the jewel in the crown of a plethora of radio shows, including Radio 1, 1xtra and BBC 6 Music.
