BMI’s Bradley Collins Confirmed for Indie Music Week

BMI’s Bradley Collins Confirmed for Indie Music Week

Nashville, Tennessee - Indie Music Week has announced that Bradley Collins, Associate Director of Writer/Publisher Relations, BMI Nashville, 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.

In his position as Associate Director, Writer/Publisher Relations of BMI, Bradley Collins works with people in every aspect of the music business -- songwriters, artists, publishing companies, record labels, producers, managers and attorneys -- as he assists BMI writers and publishers in the administration of their musical works. Among his responsibilities are connecting new writers/artists with those who can further their careers; evaluating writers’ material for potential industry referrals; helping writers in negotiating publishing deals; setting up BMI showcases; and participating in seminars and awards presentations featuring BMI writers and publishers.

Collins joined BMI in 2002 from Acuff-Rose Music Publishing, where he was a song plugger responsible for securing cuts and administering the catalogue. Among the writers he worked with are Dean Dillon and Casey Beathard, and Warner Bros. recording artist Ray Scott.

“We’re excited to have a real industry pro like Bradley involved with Indie Music Week. Many artists don’t realize how much a performing rights organization (PRO) like BMI can help them throughout their entire music careers, not just as a signed writer or artist,” says Indie Music Week President Jonell Polansky.

Other confirmed panelists include representatives from Universal South, Lyric Street Records, Sony Music, Broken Bow Records, and Vivaton Records.

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.
