The Grassroots Seminar and Showcase Tour has already gained significant traction within the music industry. While technology has revolutionized music delivery to target audiences, a crucial disconnect has developed, particularly in hip hop, rock, and R&B genres. The tour aims to address this gap by fostering open dialogue, conducting workshops, and engaging key influencers to educate and unite artists, DJs, and other industry professionals.
Esteemed panelists, including Shaun Ross (Head A&R of No Limit Records), Jameelah “Just Jay” Wilkerson (CEO of The Hype Magazine), Darryl Stuggis (My Life Ent.), Chill (Come Clean Empire LLC), Tony Merritt (Tony Star Media), and industry consultant Tony Jordan, will grace the event, providing insights and expertise. The tour also plans to include Shamika Bottom (Wu Tang Management and BottomLine Management ), and many other notable names in the industry.
The Grassroots Music Seminar and Showcase Tour has a clear goal of helping participants understand the music business and their respective roles within it. The event will address key industry issues such as publishing, copyright laws, encoding, and other traditionally neglected topics.
