b. Speaker: Roger Blanc (BoD)
He will briefly discuss how MFM presents a novel platform for artists from historically separate musical traditions to join forces in pooling information, resources and political clout during an era which presents daunting challenges to all forms of professional musical activity.
c. Speaker: Adam Reifsteck (MFM member)
While streaming services are now in the forefront and musicians are forced to chase fractions of pennies from their recorded music, there is tremendous opportunity when you ignore the music industry trends and apply 21st-century digital marketing strategies that successful businesses in other industries use to your music. Adam teaches electronic musicians how to adopt a musicprenuer mindset and shares what it really takes to succeed in the new music industry.
d. Speaker: Sohrab
Sohrab will report about MFM’s endorsement and support of the Hudson Valley Summit (August 9, 2019 in Kingston NY).
A full-day conference for ambitious, talented and innovative music industry professionals from the Northeast and beyond. Musicians, managers, agents, promoters, record labels, producers, publicists, and the media will share insights, strategies, and rich experiences on how to best create music and bring it to fans.
