Future of Music Coalition has just added several new names to its upcoming D.C. Policy Day at National Geographic Music and Radio and National Geographic Live! on February 11, 2009. The event offers an up-close look at how changes in the policymaking landscape could impact the music community, from artists and entrepreneurs to advocates and fans.
We definitely have an interesting Policy Day panelist to tell you about today: legendary manager and artist advocate Peter Jenner (you can listen to an earlier FMC podcast interview with Peter here).
In case you were wondering if anyone from the urban/electronic music community would be at our upcoming DC Policy Day, no worries — production legend and FMC advisory board member Hank Shocklee will be ready to represent in Washington on Wednesday, February 11.
A Long Island native and two-time Source Magazine “Producer of the Year,” Hank is currently president of Shocklee Entertainment — a music, film media and technology info portal through which users can exchange information and discover valuable tools to advance their own careers. read more
With DC Policy Day around the corner, today we decided to keep it local and introduce fellow Washingtonian Bryan Calhoun — Vice President, New Media and External Affairs at SoundExchange and FMC Board member.
