On Helping African And Caribbean Artists

Thanks to my buddy Mark Adato, and his work with the organization Africa New Day, I got to help two African independent artists from Congo with career advice. This year, through my mentorship work at SXSW and through AND, I’ve been honored to give career advice to artists in the Caribbean and Africa.
Independent artists in the United States take for granted our relatively easy and abundant access to information and resources related to the music business. Many of the artists in Africa and Carribean do not even know how to get their music on iTunes. They want desperately to share their music. I’m proud that I’ve been able to help a few get started on the right path.
I’ve even used my in-store music video network, which plays in all Shiekh Shoes stores across the United States, to showcase artists from Africa and the Caribbean to my 3 million viewers.
Connecting the diaspora through music, demonstrating our similarities through musical storytelling, and showing that entertainment defies boarders has been a humbling experience.
If you are reading this and you are an artist from Africa, reach out to Africori, which describes itself as a Pan-African music company for artists and labels. Their website is http://africori.com. They may be able to help with getting music distributed. Also, learn about copyrighting your music and collecting music royalties in your territory. You can find more information by talking to Music In Africa foundation. Their website is http://musicinafrica.net.

Please Vote For My SXSW Panel Idea

For the past two years, I’ve been mentoring music and music tech entrepreneurs at SXSW. From music app founders to indie bands to artist managers, I’ve given my time to provide advice and guidance to awesome people working to improve their careers or businesses.

Over the last year, I’ve focused a great deal of my time on the issues surrounding rights and metadata in the music industry. My research and work has culminated in the launch of my startup, TuneRegistry, which enables music creators and rights-holders to manage their music catalogs and register their rights and metadata all in one place. We believe that by empowering music creators with a tool to organize accurate metadata and streamline the rights registrations processes, the music industry as a whole will be better accountable to artists and writers.

This summer I had the honor of teaching a course at the UCLA Music Innovation Summer Institute on the music tech business. During the program, I curated and moderated a panel on rights and metadata and invited representatives from Music Reports, Crunch Digital, BuzzAngle Music, and the co-founder of TuneRegistry to speak on the challenges we’re seeing in the digital music space. The panel went so well that I was encouraged to submit the panel to SXSW.

I am happy to say that the panel, along with the original speakers — Bill Colitre (Music Reports), Keith Bernstein (Crunch Digital), Jim Lidestri (BuzzAngle Music), and Jesse Morris, Esq. (TuneRegistry) — is up for consideration for SXSW 2017.

See You At SXSW 2016

SXSW 2016

SXSW (aka South by Southwest) is one of my favorite conference series where creators and technologists converge around content, innovation, and industry issues. It’s a place for discovering and being discovered, a place for inspiration, a place to conduct business, and a place to build new lasting relationships. And from the never-ending day parties, concerts, brand activations, and Austin nightlife, it’s fun as heck!

As a SXSW Mentor, I have the privilege of participating in one-on-one sessions with SXSW attendees who seek feedback on their projects/careers/startups and insight based on my areas of expertise and experience in digital media and the music industry.

This year I will be participating as a Mentor for the SXSW Interactive Conference (March 11-15) in the Startup Village track and SXSW Music Conference (March 15-20) in the Music Tech & Format Wars track. I will also be present at the SXSW Music Hackathon Championship where hackers use their programming knowledge and a collection of music-tech APIs to develop their industry-changing prototypes and compete for over $10,000 in prizes, awarded by our panel of celebrity judges.

For my mentor session schedule and to reserve a  slot with me, see my schedule at http://sxsw.is/1KYDFO2.
