One of the smartest people I know, Andy has pitched a great session again this year.
Defining "Arist Development" In Concrete Terms
Andy Adelewitz, Paradigm Talent Agency
Description: "Artist development" has long been one of the most popular catch phrases of the music business. It's understood in a broad sense to concern guiding the growth of a new artist, in both the creative and marketing senses. But what does this actually mean, in a nuts-and-bolts way? A panel from an array of disciplines will discuss what "artist development" means to them. Ideally, a manager, booking agent, record label and/or publishing exec (marketing/artist development/A&R), and someone from the creative side (artist or producer) will make up the panel, reflecting a broad array of components in building an artist's career.
