For the past 10 years the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation has presented the Sync Up conference – a business development initiative for the music industry – during the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival presented by Shell. Now the Foundation is making the conference a year-round program, with a series of monthly presentations on topics of interest to independent artists.
With subjects like “Clearing Samples for Your Record,” “Booking a Tour” and “Band Web Sites: What Makes a Good One?,” the new monthly series of Sync Up events is designed to provide practical information to working artists who are struggling to launch their careers.
The new monthly Sync Up events will feature a mix of visiting industry professionals and artists, along with local music business leaders who are experts in their fields. In time, the range of discussion topics will expand to include issues of interest to those working in film, digital media, and other aspects of the entertainment industry.
