FEATURED PANELS & SEGMENTS
WOMEN IN ARTIST MARKETING
From management and A&R to music marketers and artist marketers, we'll be taking a look at how women are shifting the conversation in the realm of all-things-artist. Whether you're interested in working in this field or you're an artist looking for advice on how to market your work, our panel will offer real and fresh perspectives on what it takes to succeed in this industry. *Panelists TBA.
Moderated by Moya Nkruma (Director of Rhythm & Soul at ASCAP)
LIVE INTERVIEW + ARTIST CHAT W/ RAYANA JAY
In-between panels, we'll be sitting down with rising R&B-soul singer Rayana Jay for a candid artist chat about her career and personal experiences that have shaped who she is today. Lauded by everyone from Saint Heron to Nylon and NPR, Rayana Jay’s influences span from Organized Noize, all the way to the raw emotions of Amy Winehouse and sultry tones of Anita Baker. The Richmond, CA singer will reveal what she's learned so far navigating the music industry in a 1:1 interview with music journalist and curator, Emily Berkey.
WOMEN IN MEDIA
More and more women are changing their media diets and searching for a sense of real (outside of the bullshxt we're served daily). Our Women in Media panel will explore how women are working to change the conversation of how stories are told at existing companies and how stories are chosen at publications. *Panelists TBA.
