Speaking at SXSW this Thursday, March 17 @ 5 pm

March 14th, 2016

It’s time for SXSW!

I’m gearing up for a busy week of events, meetings, panels, and shows.  My company Sparkplug, the community marketplace where musicians rent instruments and gear to and from each other, will also be out in full force, backlining shows ranging from unofficial showcases to large scale, official events.

First time at SXSW? Check out this article I wrote a couple years ago about how to maximize your SXSW experience.

And if you have a badge, please consider checking out the panel I will be speaking on:

Four Agreements Every Artist Needs to Understand

Thursday, March 17th, 5 – 6 pm.

Austin Convention Center, Room 17AB


If you’re an independent artist, songwriter, producer or manager, this panel is for you! Four prominent entertainment lawyers dig into the key contracts you need to understand to be successful: Management, Label, Publishing, and Band Member agreements. You will learn key terminology, negotiation points, and the pitfalls you need to look out for. If you are serious about your career, then this is a must-attend panel.
