Women in Music’s Workshop on Mastering your Message

Jul 7, 2014

Thanks to everyone who attended our Women in Music workshop on “Mastering Your Message,” led by Lee Murphy Wolf and Becky Yee on June 19, 2014 at BMI’s offices in New York City.  Lee Murphy Wolf (the CEO and Founder of Step Out To Shine Business Coaching, a company dedicated to helping creatives, visionary thinkers and spirited solopreneurs build successful businesses and brands they love, that are aligned with their vision) and Becky Yee (an award winning photographer and the Principal at Around Digital Media (ADM), an agency that specializes in visual storytelling and helping artist produce their EPK), led an informative workshop helping attendees get to the heart of communicating about their music in an honest, heartfelt, and attention-grabbing way.

Workshop participants were coached to create elevator pitches that spoke from a place of authenticity and passion, and were encouraged to look deeply into their talents to find their unique abilities. Tips were shared on how to make a sustainable connection with an audience, as well as ideas on creating an eye-catching and compelling EPK through photography and media to help depict the artist as genuine and original.

Women in Music thanks our wonderful workshop leaders and the participants for making a worthwhile and meaningful event.

Women in Music Meet-Up at New Music Seminar

Jul 2, 2014

We’d like to thank New Music Seminar for providing a forum to discuss important topics affecting the women working in the music business, and for allowing us to raise awareness about key issues, such as the lack of women executives in the industry. It is through the support of forward-thinking organizations such as NMS that we are better equipped to address the challenges of finding women leaders to participate in important music industry conferences such as this one, while helping us to identify those individuals who want to inspire and be role models for other women in music. 
A high-spirited discussion was lead by Linda Lorence (VP, Writer-Publisher Relations, SESAC and former WIM President) and WIM President Neeta Ragoowansi, joined by Peter Schwinge, General Manager, New Music Seminar.

Moms in Music Panel

Jul 2, 2014

In celebration of Mother’s Day, Women in Music presented its annual Moms in Music panel on May 15th, at BMI. The amazing group of panelists spoke candidly about the joys and challenges of parenting while maintaining a career in the music industry, as well as about the best (and worst) of parenting skills, choices/compromises along the way, and decisions that go into your choice to be a parent.
The fabulous moderator Pam Workman (of Workman Group Communications), took our audiences through the amazing journeys of our hard working mom panelists . . . . Nina Persson (Lead Singer of The Cardigans), Angela Hunte (GRAMMY award winning composer, producer (Empire State of Mind, etc.) and recording artist), Julie Hurwitz (VP, Commercial Music Group, Kobalt Music), Lauren Kinhan (NY Voices & Internationally Touring Solo Artist) and Liz Leahy (CEO & Founder, Section 101).
Thank you to all of these amazing women for teaching, sharing and inspiring our audiences about being moms in music!
