Meet the MusicWorks Panelists | Liam Killeen

Posted on

We're rounding out this season's DIY Series with one of the single most important things anyone working in music can do... strategic planning. Coming up on Wednesday, April 6, Coalition Music's Liam Killeen will join us to discuss.

Liam is a Toronto-based manager, representing USS, Zubin Thakkar, The Proud Sons, and Faber Drive. He is also the professor of talent management at Toronto’s Ryerson University. Previously, Killeen was the drummer of the pop-punk act Not By Choice.

About the workshop
A look at how developing a long term strategic plan can help guide your career from local to national and international levels. This discussion will touch on the different steps in a career path, including topics like when/how to use a publicist, what kind of outside resources are available to managers, and how to use showcase opportunities to break into new markets.

The MusicWorks DIY Series offers developing artists and industry, as well as veterans looking to update their skills, the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of the music business. The series starts with the music business fundamentals that everyone needs to master – bio writing, radio play, mastering social media, touring, and understanding copyright -- and ends with planning a release, showing how each of these pieces fit together to create a cohesive strategy.
