New Music Seminar Returns To New York This June, Announces Programming And Speaker Highlights

NEW YORK, May 7, 2014 – New Music Seminar (NMS), dedicated to exploring ideas that will lead to a better music business through networking, engagement, and discussion about the future of music and business, returns to New York for its annual conference, June 8-10, 2014, at The New Yorker Hotel.

From breakout indie artists to visionary CEOs and executives, NMS is where high-level discussions and interaction will help shape the new business solutions for this new era of music business.

“The music industry has reached a flexion point – after eight years of growth, digital music sales have peaked and joined CD sales in double digit declines, and the future of the music business is clearly ensconced in streaming,” said Tom Silverman, founder and executive director, New Music Seminar. “Music’s monetization, measurement and even the language must change from units to users, average revenue per user (ARPU) and customer lifetime value (CLV). This is a paradigm shift of unprecedented proportion and the New Music Seminar will probe the opportunities and dangers as we enter this new era.”
This year, NMS again features the SoundExchange Summit focused on the growth in streaming, and how labels and artists can maximize revenues. A third day of educational programming is also added to the schedule. The conference now kicks off on Sunday, June 8, with the NMS Tune-up Sessions featuring the Art of Networking, Artist is a Business and The Legal Big Four (CLE) discussing the big four artists agreements, followed by the opening night red carpet event.

The main theme of this year’s NMS is: “The beginning of a brand new music business,” with a story that unfolds through all-star movements on topics such as:
• The A&R Movement features the hottest new A&R talent including Talya Elitzer (A&R Representative, Capitol), Alyssa Castiglia (A&R Representative, Island Records), Brandon Davis (A&R Manager, Atlantic), Jon Coombs (General Manager, SC Publishing), Jenna Rubenstein (Creative, Insieme Music Publishing, Glassnote Entertainment), Austin Rice (A&R Representative, Columbia Records), Jessica Strassman (A&R Representative, Columbia Records), and Patch Culbertson (A&R Manager, Republic Records), and will be conducted by David Massey (President, Island Records).

• Independent Labels Coming to Power will be conducted by: Darius Van Arman, Co-owner, Secretly Label Group (Jagjaguwar, Dead Oceans, Numero Uno, and Secretly Canadian), featuring: Ed Vetri (CEO/President, Wind-up Records), Craig Balsam (Co-founder, Razor & Tie), Michael Goldstone (Founder/Owner, Mom + Pop), Kris Gillespie (General Manager, Domino), Shannon Houchins (Founder, Average Joes Entertainment), Steve Greenberg (Founder/CEO, S-Curve Music). The session will discuss market share and why independent labels may be a better choice for artists than majors.

• Dance Music: Not Another Disco Bubble featuring: Patrick Moxey (President, Ultra Records), Geronimo (Senior Director of Programming, SiriusXM), Prem Akkaraju (CCO, SFX Entertainment), Andrew Goldstone (Manager, Red Light Management), Glenn Mendlinger (SVP/General Manager, Astralwerks), Senthil Chadambaram (CEO, Dancing Astronaut), Lee Anderson (Agent, AM Only)

• Music Subscription: The leaders of the exploding music subscription sector explain why music subscription will drive exposure and revenues for artists and their investors in a way that records never could. How can the music industry get behind the subscription wave and accelerate the consumer adoption of subscription music? With Ralph Simon (CEO & Founder, Mobilium Global), Mark Piibe (EVP, Global Business Development & Digital Strategy, Sony Music), Stephen Bryan (EVP, Digital Strategy & Business Development, Warner Music Group), Paul Springer (SVP, Rhapsody), Tamara Hrivnak (Director, Partnerships (Google Play Music), Google)

• High Resolution Audio is Coming. Are you Ready? What you have to know about getting the best possible recording done today that will be ready for our HRA future. Featuring: Michael Fremer (Editor, Analog Planet), Spencer Chrislu (VP, Configuration Strategy, Warner Music Group), Steve Guttenberg (The Audiophiliac, CNET), Alan Silverman (Founder/Mastering Engineer, Arf! Mastering), Jerry Harrison (Producer/Performer, Talking Heads)

• Those interested in the international market can attend Midem’s presentation of The Globalization of Music, conducted by Bill Werde (Entrepreneur, Guggenheim Digital), featuring Daniel Glass (Founder and President, Glassnote Entertainment), Dan Chalmers (Managing Director, ADA UK), Steven Hill (Head of International Marketing, Warp Records), Andy Chen (CEO, Aspiro Group) and Rich Riley (CEO, Shazam).

• For the legal sector, Fox Rothschild will present CLE Accredited movements on The Big Four Artist Agreements: A state-of-the-art overview of the main artist contracts; So Sue Me – everything you need to know about litigation; Music Publishing; and Artist Label Deals.
In the evening, NMS will present New Music Nights, two nights of live music featuring more than 70 Artists on the Verge, a curated selection of the best emerging artists, that will take over venues in the East Village and Lower East Side of New York.
NMS covers all sectors of the music business, from hip-hop to video, A&R, radio, touring, dance music, distribution, producers, songwriters, publishers, high resolution audio, managers and more.
About NMS:
The New Music Seminar is the world’s most influential Music Business convention, led by the voices that disrupt the conventional, tackle key issues, and provide a stage for trailblazing artists to shine. NMS is the place to network, engage, and discuss the future of the art and business of music.
From 1980-1994, NMS established itself as the most influential Music Business Conference of its time. In 2009, NMS was revived to convene the visionaries and industry leaders – paving a way to move past the dying record business. After 12 years of cleansing decline, we have a new attitude; a new optimism, a clear path to a bigger, more engaged, more inclusive, more sustainable music ecosystem.
The New Music Seminar is perfect for anyone looking to further their career in any and all facets of the music business. Recording Companies, Music Publishers, Music Technologies, Managers, Agents, Artists, Songwriters, Producers, and artist & label services from around the world come together each June in New York City to cross-pollinate, share ideas, and create new opportunities.
