Joy Warman – Project Manager
Joy’s taken the last few years to embed herself in the UK music industry. Currently, if she’s not at a gig or festival, she’s working as a European Project Manager at Secretly Group or building a community and creatives’ fund with Imaginary Millions. At Secretly Group, she oversees projects for artists such as Jamila Woods, Faye Webster, Claud, MUNA, Khruangbin and more. Within the community at Imaginary Millions she’s able to dig deeper into the grassroots of performers’ careers and ultimately tries to shine a spotlight on everyone’s creativity.
She also has experience in HR, corporate copywriting, research, social media management, and radio presenting as one third of radio collective, Melatrois, or on the Imaginary Millions show on Soho Radio. All these things and more make up the Joy we see today – your friendly neighbourhood music nerd.
