MUSEXPO: Take Your Band to L.A.

Posted on

Trying to break into the Los Angeles market? MARIA is now taking submissions for a MUSEXPO showcase opportunity. Find out how to apply to the showcase, presented by MARIA and MANITOBA FILM & SOUND, here. Deadline is January 17 and the conference gets underway at the end of April.

MUSEXPO, "the United Nations of music and media," hosts some of the music industry's high profile names, from heads of A&R  to film and TV music supervisors to publishers, agents, managers and video gaming honchos. This year's list of delegates boasts the Dixie Chicks' manager Simon Renshaw, legendary songwriter Diane Warren, the presidents of Epic and Mercury Records, the woman who broke Brandi Carlile's career by placing a few of her songs on Grey's Anatomy, and the music directory for famed L.A. radio station KCRW. And that's not even all of them.

Last year, MARIA and MFS headed a Manitoba delegation to MUSEXPO that included Sick City, Paper Moon, Keith and Renee, and Losing Focus as well as Jack Shapira of Unison Studios, Jason Smith of Smallman Records, Chris Burke-Gaffney and Jewls Dengl of CBG Artist Development, Brandon Friesen of 441 Studios, songwriter/producer Arun Chaturvedi, artist Kelly Fairchild, and David Kennedy of Manitoba Trade and Investment.

But who wants to go somewhere warm in the spring? We think they should move MUSEXPO to February.
