Manitoba Music is gearing up for exciting fall season of professional development workshops for the music industry. Hosted in the Manitoba Music Resource Centre, MusicWorks presents experienced music industry veterans, hot new trend setters, and tastemakers speaking on the most important topics for today’s artists and music industry entrepreneurs.
This season, MusicWorks will focus on timely topics like effective live performance, publicity and release planning, producing viral videos, DIY touring, co-writing, merchandising, and more.
The series brings to Manitoba some of the most influential music professionals from across Canada and beyond, including: publicity mavens Tonni Maruyama of Anti-/Epitaph Records (Tom Waits, The Weakerthans) and Joanne Setterington of Indoor Recess (Arcade Fire, Band of Horses, Fleet Foxes, Metric); Nylon’s Micah Barnes; Bandzoogle’s artist relations rep Dave Cool; the team behind acclaimed recording act Library Voices’ success – Nevado Records’ Nick Bernal, Freshly Pressed PR’s Julie Booth, and The Agency Group’s Eli Klein; and more.
MusicWorks will also draw on the considerable expertise of Manitoba-based pros like Pocketgigs’ Chris Gaudry, Comeback Kid’s Jeremy Hiebert; and songwriter/producer Chris Burke-Gaffney.
