Delivering your music into the public arena has never been as easy as what it is now.. However, there are so many artists releasing music every day.
How can you be seen or heard amongst the noise?
Australian independent singer-songwriter, radio announcer, owner of Westwood Management music management agency and founder of the Indie Musician Summit, Kate Westwood has created the Indie Musician Summit, a 100% free conference for independent and emerging artists, providing practical training, industry insights and new ideas to propel music careers forward.
During 2020, the height of the Covid-19 lockdowns, Kate had been operating Westwood Management for two years. She was looking for a way to further help artists during an incredibly tough time for the industry and the individuals involved. It was during this time, that the Indie Musician Summit was born.
“It’s amazing that we are in our third year already. I feel like we get to continue to develop the value that the summit offers and the way in which attendees, speakers and artists can connect with each other.” Kate Westwood
This year, the summit focus is on ‘Press Play’; the idea that we all need a little help in getting our music into the hands and ears of our fans.
With a jam-packed day of speakers including:
– Steve Jaz (Music Valley)
– Lola Major (Kitchen Sync Music)
– Jena Marino (RSOM)
– Sidney (Emerging Artist)
– Chrissy McHugh (Video Producer)
– Francesca de Valance (I Heart Songwriting Club)
– Kerri Ho (The Songbird Tree)
Just to name a few of over 25 guests, the focus will be on music distribution, sync and licensing, social media and music promotion and marketing.
“There’s so much good stuff ahead for indie artists but also a lot of confusing messages about what they should or should not do so I’m excited to host a space to bring clarity and options for our attendees. In this era of abundance – so many artists, so much music, it’s nice to know that there are places we can go to help sort out the spam and scams from the real and relevant help and support and I’m proud to be able to host a summit that is doing that!” Kate Westwood
Anyone who would like to attend the Indie Musician Summit will need to register for free and will have access to all speakers and artist showcases for 48 hours. Registrants will have the option to purchase an all-access pass if they would like to retain the content beyond the 48 hours and will also gain access to bonus courses.
