Founder and Manager Shirley Howe (aka LA Thompson) brought The LMM Network to life on the 3rd November 2016 as a result of 3 years promoting emerging and established indie artists and their music to radio and producing compilations CD’s. Shirley saw a need for Indie music to be more accessible so along with her teams desire to perform on a regular basis The LMM Network was born. Shirley say’s “We are growing into a fantastic network of highly talented songwriters, producers and a pretty all round awesome group of individuals who love Indie music. Everyone is welcome to join, you don’t have to be a musician to enjoy good music”. The LMM Network is expanding into Australasia in the coming months so all Indie Artists will be welcome to join our network.
