The NEW MUSIC SEMINAR was just completed in Hollywood & was a great success! The LEADERS of the ‘NEW MUSIC INDUSTRY’ converged on Hollywood a day after the GRAMMYS to move the momentum forward on all areas!  With new technology, indie successes (ARCADE FIRE winning GRAMMY for Album of the Year, among many others), & the demise of ‘the majors’ (anyone wanna buy an outdated EMI for $6 Billion dollars?!) – the INDEPENDENTS are the leading force & future of the evolving music business!  Leading innovators like MOBY, CHAMILLIONAIRE, & companies like OURSTAGE, INDIEPOWER, &

REVERBNATION stole the show & led the way to the leading edge of where the business is heading!  Indie group THE DAYLIGHTS won the ARTISTS ON THE VERGE Contest & hot new band AUGUST RISING won a private workshop with the awesome TOM JACKSON (king of  live performance training!).

Congratulations to Tom Silverman, Dave Lory, Mike Filleti, the volunteer army & amazing INDIEPOWER Street Team for a great event & look forward to next year’s even bigger extravaganza!

 

Also hats off to rising Hip Hop act SOZAY for a pre-GRAMMY bash in Hollywood that showcased his great sound, before he leaves for a tour with HOUSE OF PAIN! DEC:ARE YOUR INDEPENDENCE!
