‘Everybody’s Got To Learn Sometime’ was originally recorded by The Korgis in 1980 and later covered by Beck for Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.
Session facilitated by Lauren Neko, EMC
The old process of sending your music to an industry gatekeeper may no longer work. But why? How are artists being discovered in 2019? How do you reach out to the industry these days, or do you just let the industry come to you? A label A&R, a booker/manager and a distributor discuss the modern ways artists are breaking through and how much opportunity unsolicited demos can really afford.

It’s easy to fall for the hype around social follows and numbers of streams, but are these bankable metrics of success? In this session we look at the ways many have built a strong online and offline community around music – whether as an artist, a music collective, a party – and what has been key to their success in generating support, engagement and fandom, rather than just statistics.
