A Full-On Major (Label, Publishing, Management, Agency, Legal) Pitch Session
You know how soulless a pitch can be. Continuously sending your demo into a void can seem less than rewarding. But at this panel, don't expect to just play a demo - this is a full-on get-in-front-of-a-real-person-that-can-sign-you pitch session. And if you dare to pitch, you sure better have something fantastic to back up your act like sales, radio play, live shows, and online numbers - just to name some additional collateral. Be prepared to ante-up, and be ready for the truth.

He's toured internationally, opened a mainstay music club in New York, produced releases from top artists, started his own record label, collaborated on a raucous sound and film collage called WHO KNOWS?, and recorded four full-length albums including his most recent release, 00 Cadillac. As a speaker, Andrew W.K. has transformed traditional lectures at institutions such as Yale, Carnegie Mellon and the Cooper Union into multi-platform "happenings,"
