Keynote Presentation - Amy Terrill, Executive Vice President Music Canada:
The music scene in Canada reflects the amazingly diverse influences that have shaped this country. Music Canada is a Toronto-based non-profit trade organization that represents the interests of companies that record, manufacture, produce, promote, and distribute music in Canada. Music Canada works to implement music scenes across the nation by working hand-in-hand with Sony Music Entertainment Canada Inc., Universal Music Canada Inc., and Warner Music Canada Co. Executive Vice President of Music Canada, Amy Terrill, will be joining us to discuss Music Canada’s “Music Cities Strategy” and offer insight into how Music Canada plays a role in the development of music scenes across the country. She will also discuss the overall role of Music Canada and careers supported by her work.
An Artists Team:
Music is a team sport. From The Beatles to Justin Bieber and everyone in between, artists need a productive and effective team to help achieve goals they have put forth that lead them to their ultimate success. All musicians have limitations; however, they can strengthen these limits when they team up with accomplished people that have experience in specific areas. The Artists Team panel focuses on the people and careers within the music industry. From talent managers to lawyers to agents, a musician’s team develops a strategy for success. Learn about the career and relationships that make up an artist’s team. Panelists include Jake Gold (The Management Trust), Adam Kreeft (United Talent Agency), Laurie Gelfand (Entertainment Lawyer) and local London manager Tim Fraser (Murdoch Music).
Careers in Music:
The music industry is enormously complex. There is no one-size-fits-all model for success. The industry is constantly shape shifting and morphing, and because of this, many industry specific jobs exist. Our Careers in Music panel aims to educate conference attendee’s about various types of careers within the music industry, and hopefully inspire attendee’s to further their discover career opportunities. Panelists on Careers in Music include C.J Allen (Career Counsellor OIART), Brandon Eedy (London Music Hall) and Matt Sobhy (Prevail Music Inc. & X-Infused).
