Music Publishing and licensing experts including representatives from BMI, Broadcast Music Inc, Audio Network Inc., Warner Music, AMC Broadcasting and Dream Lawyers Entertainment Attorneys have been summoned to join forces to help current and aspiring Songwriters, Composers, Performing Artists, and Producers make more money. They will converge at the MusicCONVERG™ Summit on May 7, 2016 from 9:00AM-4:00PM at the Business Resource Center’s Midtown location in the Paramount Plaza, 1633 Broadway, New York.

MusicCONVERG™ is a music publishing and licensing summit created for emerging musical talent that includes songwriters, composers, performing artists, producers and managers to have an opportunity to learn how to create revenue from their works of art. Emerging musical talent will gather together for this unique opportunity to get tips and education from the music publishing and licensing experts.

"Anyone who has attempted to dive into music has learned that the music industry is not for the faint at heart. It takes persistence, tenacity and unmatched talent and creativity to excel in this field", says Jeremy Stennett, creator and host of the Summit. "Those who have ventured and stayed the course find that, with those tenets in place, this is a very lucrative and exciting life-changing industry for emerging musical talent", Stennett states.

So what is MusicCONVERG™ all about?
This will be a full day packed with expert panel discussions and small group, artist-centered support training. Participants will learn from industry leaders, including publishing and performance rights membership representatives, entertainment attorneys, retail marketers, gaming executives and advertising professionals. Featured panelists include the creators of Moor Games, who will share their outstanding accomplishment in partnering with their first celebrity partner, Fetty Wap.

Grammy Award Winning composer, singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Christopher North and Warner Music Group royalty analyst Keisha Alexis will host a master songwriting (jingle composition) and licensing workshop for attendees to learn how they can monetize their songwriting skills.

Alexis is a witness to the royalty and licensing challenges artists go through on a daily basis. “With the right guidance, who says you have to be a 'starving artist'? At the MusicCONVERG™ summit, we will certainly dispel that myth! We teach you how to build your fan base and expand your knowledge in this highly competitive industry?" says Alexis.

Other expert panelists include Chris McCormick, Director of Writer/Publisher Relations, BMI, Martin Cribbs, Publishing Consultant, Cribbs Consulting, formerly of Universal Consumer Products Licensing, Cindy Chao, Head of Branded Content - Audio Network Inc., Davon Robinson, Co-Founder, CEO and Keegan Carter, CMO of Moor Games celebrity Partnership featuring Fetty Wap, Nzengha Waseme, Esq., Intellectual Property and Entertainment Attorney of DreamLawyers, Shawn Stewart, Manager, Licensing of Warner Music Group and Marc Lawrence, Content Rights Management at AMC Networks. Their complete biographies are available on the summit website.

This event was conceptualized to provide a more in-depth understanding of the world of publishing, licensing and royalties. "The goal is to provide a place where the pool of talented music collective can come and learn the fundamental principles from experts who work in that space everyday," says Nzengha Waseme intellectual property attorney at DreamLawyers. At the Summit, attendees will participate in work sessions and learn to immediately apply business principles that can create compensation within a reasonable time frame. Participants will gain insight on how music converges with the advertising, fashion, television, technology, film and retail industries.

Convergence is an incredible way to create new revenue, while providing solutions and building partnerships within compatible industries. As a prime example of industry partnerships, Davon Robinson, CEO and co-founder of Moor Games states that "The Moor team determined that a mobile racing game would best support Fetty’s brand. Fetty is an astronomical user engagement and is a powerful influencer. ” Fetty Wap is an artist from Paterson, NJ whose buzz rapidly grew from local to worldwide.

The panel is moderated by Hillary Cutter, Executive Producer of Cutter Production. Hillary shared that she is happy to participate, as she regularly utulizes licensed music for the advertising commercials and other video projects her company produces.

Stennett adds "This is not the place where you come to chase your musical hopes dreams, watching others talk about their success. This is a place where you learn from the industry professionals and turn your dreams and hopes into actual cash. The Business Resource Center was created for that purpose, #BEHEARD!"
