Silicon Beach Fest Fall 2012: Music: Tech A&R panel

Music: Tech A&R
With so many music apps and streaming services available, what new opportunities can the startups of tomorrow present artists and fans while attracting listeners and consumers? Much like A&R reps look for talent, performance and the live experience for an artist, we look for a perfect combination of purpose, functionality and user experience for a music startup.

Brian Solis and Client Billy Corgan at SXSW 2012

Brian Solis and Billy Corgan sxsw 2012

A few months back Brian Solis tweeted about one of his favorite artists who happens to be one of mine. We ended up in a discussion about music and he came up with the idea of having Billy Corgan, who was my client at the time, on his End Of The Music Business as Usual Keynote at SXSW 2012.

After 1000’s of e-mails, texts and schedule changes, thanks to Peter Katsis and Deb Klein at Prospect Park, and of course SXSW and Billy Corgan, we managed to organize it.
