Performing Songwriter’s Abby White to Speak at Indie Music Week
Nashville, Tennessee - Indie Music Week has announced that Abby White, Music Editor of Performing Songwriter magazine, will be participating as an Indie Music Week panelist. IMW, taking place in Nashville March 11-12, will feature three industry panels of Major and Independent A&R, promoters, label executives, producers, managers and lawyers, and will wrap up with a Music Industry Summit.
“Since the bulk of my daily responsibilities involves listening to new music and trying to find ways to inform our readers about it, it's pretty much a dream job for me! In my three and 1/2 years at the magazine, I've had the opportunity to interview many people throughout the music industry, from label executives to independent musicians. Since our magazine is proud to serve as the voice of the performing songwriting community, we've always provided coverage for independent artists and created articles to help them further their careers,” says Abby.
As Music Editor at Performing Songwriter, Abby has written extensive feature articles on a wide range of independent artist-related topics including “Vocal Health”, “Life on the Road for the Traveling Musician”, “Alternative Markets For Your Songs”, “The Current State of Radio and the FCC”, “Enhancing Your Product”, and “Conferences and Festivals”. She has also conducted industry and artist interviews with such well-know writer/artists Melissa Auf der Maur, Guster, French Kicks, Sam Roberts, Ben Folds, Johnathan Rice, Jason Mraz, Gavin DeGraw, Evan Dando, Adam Cohen of Low Millions, Jump (Little Children), Carbon Leaf, Adam Richman, and Matt Hales of Aqualung. She was previously employed by Nashville radio station Lightning 100 (WRLT), Nashville's only commercial Triple-A indie radio station.
Other confirmed panelists include Danny Kee from Warner Bros. Records, Amy Stevens of Vivaton Records, Lyric Street Records’ Kirk Boyer, Nashville Star and Sony Music’s Tracy Gershon, Larry Shell of Broken Bow Records, Bradley Collins of BMI, EQ Magazine’s Mitch Gallagher, and the Nashville Association of Professional Recording Services (NAPRS). In addition to the industry panels, Indie Music Week will also feature two Artist Showcases to be held at Nashville’s famous Douglas Corner Café.
