North Carolina Bound

North Carolina Bound! I’m seeing this trip as a two week seed planting expedition. I’ll be rolling through Asheville, Raleigh, Durham, Hillsborough, Chapel Hill, Aberdeen and all the places in between playing music, meeting venues, seeing friends and expanding the geographical compass of my show calendar. After jamming with some mandolin, washboard and banjo players up in Cumberland, Maryland at Delfest a few months back, I couldn’t resist their invitation to check out the North Carolina music scene and landscape. I’ll be blogging away as I travel – make sure to get the latest and greatest right about HERE. Thanks everybody!

Nashville Songwriting and Music Business Conference 2013

Amanda Williams, Propietor of Songwriting and Music Business, is a renegade woman in the world of music and is making a huge impact with her work. I just returned to Brooklyn from Nashville where I attended The Songwriting and Music Business Conference and had a truly eye opening, ear opening, collaborative and unforgettable experience. The conference was jam packed, morning to night, with sessions focused on songwriting and the music business led by hit songwriters, music publishers, executive producers, film/tv producers, IT/web masters and fellow songwriting enthusiasts from around the world. In addition to the business side of things, I got to play my songs live alongside fellow musicians and in song evaluation sessions for leaders in the music industry. I attended workshops with expert panels talking about innovative ways to monetize our music. It was awesome. Amanda Williams and the Songwriting and Music Business team are all about empowering, and educating in the new millennium of music. I HIGHLY recommend checking these guys out. www.songwritingandmusicbusiness.com
