Myles Keller

Membership Development Director,
PRS for Music
London, UK
A music industry veteran of 25 years, Myles joined PRS for Music in May 2006 with the task of developing writer, publisher and music industry relations and overseeing global membership strategies. His early years were spent sweeping studio floors and humping sound equipment which eventually led him to the dream job of working on the Pink Floyd ‘Momentary Lapse of Reason’ Tour in 1987. So began the colourful and exciting journey through concert merchandising, radio and TV promotion and artist management during which he worked with artists as diverse as Brand New Heavies, Billy Idol, Richard Marx, Midge Ure, Hall and Oates, Lisa Stansfield, Dina Carroll and Bomb the Bass.

In the mid ‘90’s he joined EMI Records as Head of International Marketing to work on global campaigns for priority artists including Jon Secada, Eternal, Robbie Williams, David Coverdale / Whitesnake, D ‘Angelo and Fun Lovin Criminals until joining UK 3G telecommunications start-up “3” in 2000, to deliver the music strategy for products and licensing. He joined the 24-7 Music Management team in 2002 to manage artists, producers and songwriters including Fraser T Smith (UK), Relish (Ireland), Airman (Denmark) and Nina Woodford (Sweden) prior to his move to PRS for Music.
