The Recording Academy’s Third Annual GRAMMY® GPS
The Memphis chapter of the Recording Academy will host its third annual GRAMMY® GPS: A Roadmap for Today’s Music Biz on Saturday, September 29 from 10:30 am to 10:30 pm. The event aims to educate artists, producers, labels and managers who are trying to succeed in the music industry.
The event will feature a keynote address from Sub Pop Records co-founder Jonathan Poneman. In 1987, Poneman started the label with Bruce Pavitt in Seattle. The label played an important part in launching the careers of artists like Nirvana and Beach House. The event will also have a panel discussing socially conscious hip-hop hosted by Talib Kweli, who has often been called a king of New York hip-hop and has worked with everyone from Mos Def to Kanye West.
The all-day event will feature more educational panels and demonstration sessions. All those in attendance will have access to rare high-profile contacts as well as valuable information that they can put towards developing their career in the music industry.
