There’s more than one way to make a living in the music business, and with 30 years of experience, local indie music label Fervor Records has some proven strategies for doing that. Fervor’s management team and industry experts from across the country are holding Music Business Summit noon to 5:30 p.m. April 7 in the auditorium of the Glendale Main Library, 5959 W. Brown St. To reserve a spot at the free public event, visit fervormusicbizsummit.com.
The summit is geared to provide 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, and how to get music placed in film and on TV.
