Think The Music Business Is Like Being Up Shit’s Creek? Well Here’s Your Paddle!

After this week in the Hammer is over, no musician will have any excuse for not knowing what to do next in their career. The Hamilton Music Awards team has done an outstanding job of populating this year’s Industry Awards with the best of the best in all areas of the industry.

Here are just a couple of highlights. Any of the bands or musicians in the HMA Festival and Awards, or anyone who is a student, can get from this FREE event starting at 9am on Thursday, May 21.

George Panagopolous of Radio Free Universe says, “You need to be there.” In just a few words he expertly summed up what everyone attending will be up for:

  • valuable insights into the trends in today’s music industry
  • access to industry personnel
  • get solid advice on how to create more, play more, record more
  • how to get exposure the right way

Need help getting your band and/or music noticed?
