I’m Toby Bennett, a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Creative & Digital Industries at Southampton Solent University.

My research is concerned with work, production and organisation within the cultural economy, particularly the music industries. I have particularly been interested in ‘non-creative’ work in this context, as well as music as a knowledge industry: aspects such as education and skills, information and innovation, commercial and policy research, industry’s self-understanding, and the emergence of new forms of expertise.

Prior to embarking on an academic career, I worked in and around music, including between 2007 and 2013 for Universal Music Group, and continue to pursue collaborations with the creative sector.

This website houses my writing and other activities, as well as an array of contact strategies.
