YESYOU UNPACKING ‘EVERYBODY’S GOT TO LEARN SOMETIME’
6pm – 6:45pm

Brisbane’s YesYou unpacks their cover of this song and the interesting back story to its creation, walking us through the entire creative process from the initial idea first demo, through the sessions to the final master recording.

‘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

REAL TALK – Does anyone even listen to demos anymore?

7pm – 7:30pm

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.

SPEAKERS:
Ash Kissane, GYROstream
Kristian Streiner, Centre Source
Lincoln Savage, Vast Yonder
Facilitated by Lauren Neko, EMC

GROWTH GUIDES: Prioritising Community

7:35pm – 8:05pm

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.

SPEAKERS:
Jordan De Pasquale, Arcadia Events
Sam Poggioli, Sampology/Middle Name Records
Thomas Parer, Shandy
Facilitated by Jane Slingo, EMC
