On Thursday (June 20), Universal Music Group will launch the Nashville Career Jam, a networking event aimed at manager-level and above in the music industry.
Nashville remains, and will always be, ‘Music City’, with a rich heritage and vibrant culture based on great artists and renowned songwriters – all supported by some of the biggest and most innovative companies in the business.
But it is also a fast-growing, rapidly expanding city, with companies from a wide variety of sectors attracted not just by a unique location but also by a high quality talent pool.
Nashville Career Jam aims to remind all attendees and participants that they are part of the most exciting and dynamic business in the world: music. And to highlight the wealth of options and opportunities there are across the sector.
It will celebrate the range of talents that make up the modern music market, welcoming experts and rising stars in every field from digital marketing and streaming to copyrights and royalties.
Taking place at Marathon Music Works (Clinton Street) and kicking off at 5:30pm, it will be an evening of engaging conversation, insightful panels, food, drink, networking and, of course, most importantly, music.
There will be performances from:
An acoustic performance from an artist currently redefining the R&B genre, giving it fresh life and a new audience.
A 19-year-old, Nashville-based singer, songwriter signed to Capitol CMG whose sound is pop with spiritual depth. Her debut single, Broken Prayers, released in 2018, has amassed 35 million global streams to date. Her full-length, self-titled debut album also came out last year.
A Los Angeles-based singer/songwriter signed to UMPG/Burnett Music Group whose storytelling and musicianship resonates across multiple genres. He co-wrote and co-produced Kygo’s single, Sunrise, from his Kids In Love EP.
Tina Bright, Head of Talent Acquisition at Universal Music Group, said: “It’s going to be a really exciting and one which I think will really benefit the Nashville music industry right now.
“It will be a celebration of all that is great about this amazing industry, a chance to meet and talk with the people shaping and growing the business in a new era.”
“Not only will it be a great way for the sector’s current game-changers to get a real picture of who we are and what we do – across publishing and records, in all genres – it will be a celebration of all that is great about this amazing industry, a chance to meet and talk with the people shaping and growing the business in a new era.”
