Beyond The Music Presents: The Ins and Outs of Publishing

Hosted at 2112, our panelists discussed one of the most under-appreciated areas of the music industry: publishing. There are dozens of things to consider that could be the difference in hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars in missed opportunities. Managers, labels, and DIY artists learned things like composition, copyright, PROs, royalties, and publishing admins. Thank you to our moderator Brett Manchel as well as our panelists Cam Jackson (Manager of LilJuMadeDaBeat), Aaron O’Brien (Artist, Manager, and Consultant), and Nina Stiener (Digital Diva at Bloodshot Records).

Beyond The Music Presents: Booking a Small, Regional Tour

Hosted at 2112, a music and film incubator and co-working space in Chicago, our panelists discussed a wide range of topics on booking, promotion, and touring. From choosing your next city and must-have email templates, to specific programs and strategies people use to increase their tour’s success. One thing that was certain: there is no right way to book a small, regional tour. Thank you to our panelists Nina Swint, Zenep Husenaj, Vinnie Hines, and Jaime Garza – as well as our moderator, Faiz Razi!
