Developed by legendary musicians CHUCK RAINEY and JOHN ANTHONY MARTINEZ, The Tune of Success Live music summit will address the major pain points of the music industry including: how to deal with the changes in the music industry, getting out of the creative quagmire, getting past bad advice and coping with the economic uncertainty of the music business. Attendees will be able to network with industry professionals, learn how to build their personal brands, unmask their musical genius and take advantage of internship opportunities. “We are basically taking the Chicken Soup for the Soul approach with Tune of Success,” says Martinez. “A lot of musicians are struggling. They have the desire to succeed, and they want to make a difference through their art form, but they get lost in a fog when it comes to the business side of the industry. Every musician needs to understand that they are a micro-economy and that they are the most important assets to their small businesses. They have several streams of income available to them of which they may not be aware. These are a few of the things they will learn at the summit.”
The event will feature some of the most successful music industry professionals in the business. Panelists include:Gary Katz, legendary producer for Steely Dan and Diana Ross and credited for discovering Prince, William DuVall (via Skypes), lead singer and guitarist for Alice in Chains, Kevin Kiepe, promoter with Live Global Stream, José Rossy, percussionist for Patti Labelle, Moses Torres, A&R rep for iRep Services and Mack McKinney, super-producer for NeYo and Cody Simpson. “We are thrilled to have such an incredible line-up and wealth of knowledge represented by the panelists for the Dallas event,” says Martinez. “We have assembled the best in the business from all aspects of the industry.” Martinez also explained that the seminar isn’t just for music professionals. “I think business people in general can learn a lot from this panel of experts on how to be successful entrepreneurs in their chosen fields. People from all walks of life will learn about creating their own opportunities and how they can be prosperous in any industry.”
