Each artist will open with a short Q&A on their specific entrepreneurial project, followed by a performance with their band. Women in Music President Evangelia Livanos will discuss new business models with Maya Solovey, focusing on the launch of Maya's Culinary Concerts. RocketHub President Brian Meece will chat with Niall Connolly on his successful use of crowdfunding to generate capital for the band. MusicDish*China Founder Eric de Fontenay will question Tomas Doncker on his recent Shanghai tour, including financial sponsorship and challenges in international touring.

As an international artist and a trilingual songwriter, Maya Solovey has merged the acoustic/folk songwriting tradition into the territories of pop, bossa nova, and even the high drama of cinematic scoring. Her music is a surprising, yet rational marriage between many cultures as she sings in Portuguese, Spanish and her native English tongue. Her new self-titled album, Maya Solovey, released July 15th, has already gathered notice from journalists and music critics. Her song "Eu Vi" was featured in a Ralph Lauren runway video for winter fashion week, while her song "Como Yo Lloro Por Ti" will be featured on a in a FIFA World Cup compilation, and another 3 songs will be featured in an upcoming shark documentary called "Shark Allies". Tom Moon, on air critic for NPR, and journalist for Rolling Stone and Spin Magazine said, "Here's a rarity: An original voice who really is original! Drawing inspiration from all over the map, Maya Solovey has developed a deep, enchanting sound that's unlike anything else out there right now."

Niall Connolly is widely regarded among his peers as one of Ireland's most promising young songwriters. His debut album, ‘songs from a corner' (2001), went to number one in the Hot Press indie charts and helped Connolly build a loyal fan base in Ireland as well as affording him the opportunity to tour Britain and mainland Europe. His follow up, ‘as tomorrow creeps from the east' (2003), opened further doors and brought him to North America for three tours. Niall's music has already received airplay in Ireland, New York, Toronto and Sydney. ‘as tomorrow creeps from the east' has also bizarrely recorded internet sales in as yet untoured territories including Japan and New Zealand.
