The New Music Seminar 2014

Having attended 5 music conferences in the last 18 months I might have sufficient authority to make a couple of broad statements about The New Music Seminar 2014.  Due, I expect, to its location in midtown Manhattan, the seminar was able to attract the upper echelon of the music industry better than any other conference I have attended recently.  I spoke, shook hands and handed my music to Jason Flom (CEO of Lava and ex-CEO of Atlantic and Capitol Records,)  Avery Lipman (co-founder of Republic Records,)  Craig Kallman (CEO of Atlantic Records,) and the list goes on and on and on.  It could well have been the best 2 days I have spent at any such function.  With a ticket price of $400 any of the 100 or so artists that were present must have found it was money well spent particularly if you were willing to do the reach-out ahead of time and the subsequent follow-up.  I could literally fill this page up dropping the names of the people I met but suffice to say if you are if you are an artist that has music more or less finished and geared towards the US pop or pop-ish market, make sure you get tickets when next year’s seminar rolls around :)

Collab: Cecilia Mackie a.k.a. Nerd Girl vs Mike Schwab a.k.a. DJ Extraction Jackson

OMG!  Fun was had last night in Cecilia Mackie a.k.a. Nerd Girl's New York studio with lyricist and co-collaborator Mike Schwab.  This video was taken in a short break during the 5 hour session whilst writing lyrics for their soon to be released collab.  Watch out for the single "I Can't Get Mad At You"  which will have a very dirty version (spawned last night) and corresponding cleaner version:)
