This year The New Music Seminar (NMS) www.newmusicseminar.com, is expanding into a multi-day conference and event from July 19th to July 21st at The NMS Revolution Hall @ Webster Hall in New York City.
The two day, three night conference will include a symphony of five “movements” (focused discussions) over the course of two days, 8 TED-style presentations from key industry leaders, 22 mentoring sessions, nightly musical performances and ongoing networking opportunities.
The New Music Seminar is the must-attend conference for the emerging new music industry. The Seminars will address both the artists’ dilemma of breaking out from the ever-growing glut of music releases and the development of a new business model for a sustainable music business.
NMS featured “players” (speakers) for the upcoming New York City conference will include: Eric Garland (Big Champagne), Joe Kennedy (Pandora) Mike Doernberg (Reverbnation), Courtney Holt (Myspace Music), David Goodman (CBS Interactive), Little Steven (Underground Garage and the E Street Band), Ariel Hyatt (Ariel PR), Corey Denis (Not Shocking), Linda Lorence, (SESAC), Jay Frank (CMT), Gwen Lipsky (Sound Thinking), Tom Jackson (onstagesuccess.com), Martin Atkins (Tour: Smart), John Simson (Soundexchange), Corrie Christopher (APA), Chris Vinson (Bandzoogle), and Tony Van Veen (Discmakers). More to be announced shortly. The Artist Movement “conducted” by Margaret Cho will feature superstar artists discussing how they got their break and tips on how to apply what worked for them.
NMS founder Tom Silverman explains, “The New Music Seminar is the epicenter of a new movement. The NMS is the creative crucible where new ideas are hatched and new collaborations formed. The New Music Seminar is a meeting of the architects of the next music business; the creators, the investors, the technological visionaries, those for whom music is a passion that they cannot do without.”
About The New Music Seminar
From the co-founder and director of the original legendary New Music Seminar comes a conference for the Next Music Business. Artists have never had so much power to control their own careers and build their success. This affordable event gives artists and their representatives the knowledge, tools and connections to step into the tomorrow’s music business today. Delegates all receive the New Music Business Guidebook filled with important do’s and don’ts by the experts, tips, information, forms and essential websites and blogs. Important exhibits by sponsoring companies will help artists with their careers and there will be amazing networking opportunities throughout the event.
In the 80’s and 90’s the New Music Seminar was the catalyst for change in the Music Industry and became the largest music conference in the world. SXSW,Canadian Music Week, Winter Music Conference and many others were off-shoots of the New Music Seminar.
NMS is back again to usher in the next music business with a curriculum that presents a new paradigm. The next music business will be based on the relationship between artists and fans and how to manage and monetize that relationship; new deals, new economics, new relationships, new technologies, a whole new mindset. Other conferences talk about topics only relevant to superstars such as Beyonce’s sponsorship deals and getting a song in Grey’s Anatomy. NMS teachs artists and their representatives how to get to 50 miles an hour on their own, inexpensively and how to develop enough revenue sources to build a real career. NMS also gives every attending delegate the NMS New Music Business Guidebook, which is stuffed with valuable forms, do’s and don’ts, promotion and marketing tips, useful web sites and more. NMS Partners participate in creating the materials for this book to assist others in the industry along with the artists, but it also helps them promote their businesses. Other conferences have ads, an agenda and delegate information while the NMS Guidebook is a resource that can be used over and over again.
