Fervor Record Music Business Summit

"“Education is powerful; the more musicians, songwriters, producers and engineers who know about the business, the more successful the community as a whole becomes"

Local indie record label Fervor Records will hold a music business summit from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, April 6, at Glendale Main Library, 5959 W. Brown Street.

Featuring a consortium of experts who have risen through the ranks, experienced trials and errors, and worked with top players in the field, the summit gives participants a unique opportunity to learn from the best.

The summit is designed to arm musicians and anyone interested in a career in music (from public relations to producing records) with the knowledge required to make it in today’s industry. Participants will learn about management, marketing and promotion, how to get music placed in film and on TV, and more.

“Education is powerful; the more musicians, songwriters, producers and engineers who know about the business, the more successful the community as a whole becomes,” Fervor Records founder Dave Hilker said.

Panelists include DC Parmet, who served as a tour manager for Elton John; music supervisors Greg Sweeny and Toddrick Spalding of Mob Scene Creative + Productions as well as Malia Hall of Mothlight Music and Mike Turner of Mike Turner Media; entertainment attorney Ben McLane; and publishing executive Gareth Smith of Sub Pop Records. IP attorney Connie Mableson of Mableson Law Group, tax expert John Taylor of Ernst & Young, acclaimed producer and radio host Otto D’Agnolo, and Fervor executives David Hilker and Jeff Freundlich will also participate.

Grinders Coffee Company will provide free coffee, while Queso Good food truck will be onsite at noon with a variety of hot dog lunches, including a vegetarian option.

The Music Business Summit is underwritten by Fervor Records in partnership with the Glendale Main Library. Reservations are required.
