Modern A&R/NARIP Event & Music Business Roundtable

Modern A&R/NARIP Event & Music Business Roundtable

They don’t call it the music business for nothing! Most of you fall to the music side: playing gigs, composing songs, recording albums. Then there is the business side: contracts, getting signed, licensing and more. Many musicians fall into the pitfall of only concentrating on music and ignoring the business. Thankfully LAMA has your back!

On Tuesday, July 30, 2013 at 6pm, LAMA is hosting the Modern A&R/NARIP Event & Music Business Roundtable. It’s only open to LAMA students/alumni and NARIP guests.

They will discuss how they have helped to create and sustain careers for superstar and indie artists (including Sting, Janet Jackson, Dishwalla, Aaron Neville, John Mayer, Robbie Williams, Will Smith, Rascal Flatts and others), guiding their careers to hit singles, platinum sales and global success.

  • Does anyone need “A&R” anymore?
