Artist Management Conference

calendarMarch 8, 2009

For five years I have presented The Conference On Artist Management in Nashville, TN. I came up with the idea because so many people in Christian music were constantly asking me for advise on how to succeed in the business. I guess they thought I’d figured it out. Maybe it was the fact that I was still in business with a lot of gray hair. I am still around after twenty-seven years of working in this industry so I guess that proves the old saying “you don’t get old being stupid“. I don’t know about that b/c I know a lot of old stupid people! Anyway, I’ve had over a thousand people attend my conferences since it started so there must be something of value to it. I think it might be that people interested in the Christian music industry may feel that advice and counsel from a veteran’s perspective might be valuable. I also bring in a lot of my industry friends to help teach whenever I do these events.

It’s a lot of work, though. I’ve stopped doing the conferences in the last few years because of the amount of time and money (for everyone) that it takes to pull one off effectively. But the requests for advice and help continues. So I decided to see if I could provide a similar service by blogging about the things we teach at our conferences. Over the next year I plan to present as close to the same content as we delivered at our main events but in a new way. Since I’m a lousy writer (but a good talker) I plan on doing video blogs here. I’ll even invite some of my friends in the business who have had successful careers to join me. I hope it will be valuable to some of you.

Right now I am setting up an area of my office to produce the video blogs. It won’t be anything fancy but the content should prove to be worthwhile. I hope you will join me.
