New Music Seminar – Chicago

Coming up on October 06, Roving Festival Writer will be attending the New Music Seminar conference taking place in Chicago, IL.  Having the opportunity to be invited by organizer David Lory to the NYC affair this past 09′ summer, our company has developed immensely, cultivating our efforts and relationships throughout the music industry.  Being able to listen and learn from other emerging and established businesses and artists, TheRFW.com was able to use many pieces of information passed on to assist in our work and agendas within the industry.  The seminar is an invaluable tool for persons seeking to understand the modern paths and directions to take within a very unstable market of entertainment.

We are pleased to offer this New Music Seminar video on TheRFW.com and make sure you check out the 3:15 marker – Co-creators Rashon A. Massey and Benjamin Landsman are featured, giving their props to the seminar guide.  Below, find more information on the seminar and the purpose of the event and please check out the official website.

ABOUT the seminar…N

What the New Music Seminar is about:


• Seeing the music business and your opportunities a new way

• Learning to create the music and content you need to succeed

• Standing out from your competition

• Legal and business basics that you must know

• Keeping up with the latest technology to put you in front

• Managing and monetizing your relationship with your fans

• Networking with others to build your own music business foundation

What the New Music Seminar is NOT about:

• A debate about DRM • How to get signed

• Getting your songs on the radio

• The politics of the music business

• Fitting In


The New Music Seminar gives you the vital information you need to start building your career TODAY.

This is a revolution! Album sales are down 50% since 2000, radio is breaking less new music than ever in history. Record companies are signing fewer and fewer new artists and artist development budgets continue to shrink.


As an artist, manager or label, how can you thrive and win in this challenging environment? Can you see where the business is going and prepare to profit from it?

Artists have never had so much power to control their own careers and build their achievements. There are 100’s of thousands of bands and unsigned artists out there. Learn how to leave them in the dust and create your own success.


This may be the golden age for new artists if you know the secrets. From the co-founder and director of the original legendary New Music Seminar comes a seminar for the new business of music.

This low-cost one day event will give you the knowledge and the tools to step into tomorrow’s music business today. The day will kick off with a keynote speech, followed by four seminars filled with vital information on how to see it and how to do it, accompanied by the New Music Seminar Handbook filled with important contact information and vital new music business basics. The Schmoozatorium will have important industry exhibitors and an opportunity for you to network with the other Seminar delegates.


No matter what type of music you are into, rock, hip hop, dance or polka, whether you play, sing, rap or spin, the New Music Seminar is where you’ll turn your music career into a success.

DATE: Tuesday, October 6th
LOCATION: Park West
