  • What's My Line? (Noel Ramos - Moderator, Neil Sheehan, Marcy Rauer-Wagman, Greg Seneff, Thom McGuire, Sahpreem King) Producers, managers, booking agents, engineers, and others will describe their jobs and who does what. It can be a bit confusing when you are considering bringing a new team member aboard, especially if it's a manager or a lawyer.

This workshop will help you determine what to look for in your business relationships.

  • Digital Delivery... It's Still Morphing! (Ron Vos - Moderator, Dewitt Lee, Neil Sheehan, David Cooper, Vlad Kushnir, Noel Ramos, Lisa Smith-Putnam) Digital delivery is a reality. Now we are seeing how it is affecting the market. Even in the short time that we have been utilizing this new distribution method, it has already morphed considerably. Podcasting, ring-tones, digi-singles, sound tracks, and other digital marketplaces have already expanded this brand new opportunity. This panel will be a cutting edge discussion of these critical developments. Topics will include protection of intellectual property rights, digital distro deals, and the state of the emerging digital delivery market.

Choosing the right person will take your album far beyond (what you thought possible). We will discuss finding that person, what it is like to work with a producer, what they will expect of you, and what they can do for you. Speaking of going far beyond, some producers specialize in Artist Development. What is that anyway? Getting your career off the ground is difficult no matter what, but with guidance you can get a jump on the competition. This panel will encompass the roles of pure production and Artist Development so you can understand the roles and value of each step in the process.
