Music industry publication Music Connection just posted an article covering the ASCAP EXPO One-on-One Sessions. You can read the complete article here. The piece touches on the value of the EXPO from ASCAP's perspective:
"When people say, 'If I could only get 15 minutes with…' then a [EXPO] One-on-One Session is their 15 minutes."
EXPO attendee Neara Russell, a singer/songwriter, talked about her One-on-One session with the publisher Mark Friedman, SVP of Creative for Verse Music Group:
"I came to it with specific questions, and two or three songs, that I especially wanted his thoughts on. Mark ended up listening to my whole album, skipping through each track, and he gave me really good feedback," Russell recalls.
ASCAP's President and Chairman of the Board Paul Williams noted the importance of being at the EXPO:
"By collaborating with one other human being, you can double the chances of meeting someone who is going to be important in your career. To walk into a room full of your peers, you are immediately expanding with every working relationship."
If you already registered and didn't get a One-on-One Session, you can add a session right here.
If you haven't registered yet, the One-on-One Sessions are already half-way sold out. Do yourself a favor and take advantage of this potentially career changing 15 minutes!
