Music Biz 2017 - Day 4 Blog

And just like that Music Biz 2017 is over. 4 days of intensive workshops, seminars, and networking, concluded with an award luncheon that honored Reba McEntire, Paula Abdul, Adele, Lukas Graham, Maren Morris, and Hamilton Mixtape. 

There isn't a better music conference in the world in my opinion, so here is my take away from the final day. I hope these notes will help you on your journey.

  • Record labels are not spending much time in the artist development business, rather like finshed products or close to it. Touring is where a lot of artist develop. Perform as much as possible. You're going to make majority of your money on live shows.
  • You can be your own publisher, just make sure you copyright your song, and join a PRO such as ASCAP, BMI, SESAC.
  • Persistence and Politeness is essential to your longevity in the music industry.
  • If you are an manager find every opportunity to join conversations to talk about your artists. Nobody else is going to believe in your artist if you don't. 
  • If you are an artist, a good stage name is 80% of your marketing. Is your artist name working for or against you?
  • Know how to communicate what and who you are. People have 5-10 seconds to process early information.
  • As important as every aspect that goes into the music industry is, it all begins with a song! 

Thank you Music Biz 2017 for an educating, motivating, and inspiring week. The entire organization did a fantastic job. For more information on the Music Business Association, check out their website www.MusicBiz.org

Music Biz 2017 - Day 3 Blog

Day 3 of Music Biz 2017 was packed with Brand Strategy, Education, Awards, and Spotify's Troy Carter. So, be prepared to get educated, on how to strategies your brand, to one day be like Spotify's Troy Carter, and win an award like Music Millenium's Terry Currier and Universal Music Group's Mike Dungan.

  • Audio has the power to transport feelings. If you want to have something to brand make sure it's hot! Strategizing any partnership starts with your song and how does it connect with people.
  • If you are interested in getting in the VR space it's not about the content, it's about the experience. Make sure when your consumer puts their VR headgear on they say, WOW!
  • As you build your brand adopt early rituals to be a part of your story to tell with other brands. You are creating a partnership so it's important the synergy is authentic. That's what bigger brands want to see. Data trumps everything, but having a organic feeling connect with the consumer is what it's about.
  • According to Brittany Hodak from Zinepak, 61% of millenials feel they are pop culture influencer. So let them control the conversation, acknowledge them, then surprise them by creating fun experiences from the otherwise mundane. Make it a part of your consumers life.
  • If you want to start a fashion line, find you a manufacturer and focus on distribution. 
  • It's not about one week it's about 52 weeks. You can be hot for a week, but then what about the rest of the year. If you are moving enough units you have leverage.

Music Biz 2017 - Day 2 Blog

Day 2 of Music Biz 2017 featured a great amount of seminars from top speakers in the industry. There where numerous workshops that covered a wide range of topics connected to the importance of the music industry; Career Development workshops, Metadata Summit, Music's Global Explosion, and a feature presentation from Music's Leading Ladies.

Here are my biggest take aways from todays event.

  • Don't be afraid to DREAM. An incredible artist named Saul Paul, from Houston, TX, gave a talk about how important it is to dare to dream and believe in yourself. Nobody is going to help you if you don't help yourself. So dream it, rise up to it, expect it to happen, acheive it, and stay motivated.
  • All the youngsters out there looking for a career in the music industry, get an internship and learn as much as possible about the different facets of the industry. In this industry opportunities can come in any form, and being as well rounded and educated as possible will benefit you the best. Always mainatin a good rapport with everyone you come across. If people like you, they will help you. This is an industry built on relationship.
  • For entrepreneurs looking to start their own business in the music industry, find a solution to a problem. Building technology, and being innovative will always keep you ahead of the curve.
  • If you don't know what Metadat is, learn it. Metadata is the key to keeping track of all your records, especially if you want to get paid.
  • Data is the most important thing when it comes to understanding your consumer and building brand relationships. However, remeber quality content is king and is what breaks artists, so trust your gut feeling.
  • The biggest live event engagement method is FREE STUFF. No matter where you are in the world if you have a festival and want to maximize your attendees experience, free swag is the best.
  • China is a huge emerging market in the music industry, and could possibly be the biggest spender of music in 20 years. So, if you are an artist and want to break into the Chinese market, utilize Chinese platforms. Lookup Tencent QQ, Netease, and Xiami.
  • Hispanics are the largest ethnic minority in the US. If you are a brand and want to connect effectively with latin consumers, think technology, live events, and content. And if you are a latin artist and want to break into different latin markets, collaborate with other artists from those markets to elevate your brand.
  • Statistics show that the top female artists are more marketable that their male counterparts. According to Nielsen, 76% of americans are aware of the top female artists, while 54% of americans are aware of top male artists.
