Finding the inspiration or just the time for a blog post is not always easy with everything going on in life. Having a „threenager“ and a more and more demanding baby does not really help it either. But I will stop complaining, because I am having so many great opportunities at the moment.
I have been invited by the „Initiative Musik“ and by our Minister of State for Culture and Media Prof. Monika Grütters, to be part of the jury for the German „Spielstättenpreis Rock, Pop, Jazz 2015“, an award that honors the work and effort of the live clubs throughout Germany. The clubs apply for the consideration of an award and the jury then decides by judging their program, special newcomer support, creative concept and the like. I love seeing so many people still being in this business for the right reasons - the passion of music! The winners of each category get awarded with prize money. May the best win! The winners will be announced on the 12th of October in Munich.
Moreover I have also been invited by the „Reeperbahn Festival“ to be a panelist/ spokesperson on their panel „Agents Agenda“ with Christian Bilda, (Managing Director, X-Why-Z, Germany) Tobbe Lorentz, (Senior Vice President, The Agency Group, Sweden), Mark Löscher, (General Manager, Hörstmann Unternehmensgruppe, Germany) and myself. It will be about the old values in this business, that a handshake deal used to be firm, that loyalty was not only something you would dream of having, that people working in this industry were driven by passion and not by money. We will discuss how the industry has changed in these terms. The panel will take place on Friday the 25th of September 2015.
Additionally I am working on three other projects, two new business ideas and expanding my network. I will update you on my progress soon!
Whilst searching for new bands, I came across about a very inspiring young singer, who will be releasing her EP on the 28th of August. Her name is Alessia Cara, she was born in Canada in 1996 and is signed to EP Entertainment/ Def Jam Recordings. Her debut single „Here“ was called a "song for everyone who secretly hates parties" by MTV.
