*After a sold-out event in New York City this past July, the original New Music Seminar (NMS) www.NewMusicSeminar.com, returns to Los Angeles one day after the Grammys, and is expanding into a multi-day conference and event from February 14th through 16th, 2011, at NMS Revolution Hall at the Sheraton Universal Hotel.

The kickoff red carpet event, The After Grammy Jammy (the NMS Opening Night Party), will be held at The Music Box in Hollywood on Monday night, February 14th with the “Artist on the Verge Finals”, which selects one artist who will walk away with over $50K in promotion and marketing, Tuesday, February 15th at The Roxy.  

The two-day, three-night conference will include a symphony of five “movements” (focused discussions) over the course of two days, 12 18-minute Intensives (presentations) from key industry leaders, 22 mentoring sessions, daily and nightly musical performances, Summit Meetings and workshops on Rock, Hip Hop, Producers and Songwriting along with ongoing networking opportunities throughout.

The New Music Seminar is the must-attend conference for the emerging new music industry.  The Seminars will address both the artists’ dilemma of breaking out from the ever-growing glut of music releases and the development of a new business model for a sustainable music business.

NMS co-founder Tom Silverman explains, “The New Music Seminar is the epicenter of a new movement. The NMS is the creative crucible where new ideas are hatched and new collaborations formed.  The New Music Seminar is a meeting of the architects of the next music business; the creators, the investors, the technological visionaries, those for whom music is a passion that they cannot do without.”

Media partners and sponsors include: The Recording Academy, Grammy Museum, LA Weekly, Music Connection, Digital Music News, Reverbnation, KCRW, Indie 103.1, MySpace Music, Hypebot, IndiePower, Gibson, SESAC, Filter Magazine, Bandzoogle, Jakprints, Soundexchange, AFTRA, A2IM Indie Label Members and a host of other new technology and traditional music and entertainment companies.
