The Empowered Artist

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The music industry requires artists at the early stage of their careers to develop their own fan bases and formulate their own development and marketing plan to create enhanced awareness to move their careers forward. This session will look at how artists can knowledgeably approach this challenge and empower themselves, as well as the “team” that artists need to assemble to help move their music business forward. The panel will also touch on the need and the opportunity for the industry to "incubate artists" to support future catalog development.
