MusicNL Week Already in Full Swing …

Every year, MusicNL runs a great “MusicNL Week” that includes a series of panels, musical showcases, and an awards ceremony. 

Trophies are doled out in multiple award categories for both musical genres, and, industry awards. Singer-songwriters Damhnait Doyle and Kim Stockwood will host the 2015 Music NL Awards Brunch at the Delta, 11 a.m., on Sunday the 18th. Click here for this year’s music category shortlists; here for the industry awards.

For the music awards, MusicNL members submitted their applications, which were adjudicated by committees of Atlantic Canadian and international jurors.

Fortunate Ones lead the pack this year with a whopping 7 nominations, Everglow bagged 6, and the following 4 bands are in a 4-way tie for the third most nominations (4): The Ennis Sisters, Jerry Stamp, Duane Andrews, Kat McLevey, and Land of Lakes (formerly known as Matthew J. Thomson & Danielle R. Hamel).

Workshops Galore …

As always, the conference will focus on “the business inside a creative world,” so local musicians can learn how to monetize their music, better succeed in their endeavours, and generally get a little more ahead of the game.

Friday’s PD panels at The Delta include topics like “De-mystifying the Business of Music,” “Audio Production: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly ,” and a town hall focussing on marketing, branding, and acquisitions. Read more about these here.

For those looking to become an economically viable one-person performer, Saturday will include an interactive workshop on looping for Solo Performing and Film Composing. Other PD events on Saturday include “Time + Paper = Money – Rights, Royalties & Registrations,” followed by MusicNL’s Annual General Meeting from 4-5.

Musical Showcases … 

For a night or two of live music, hit up The Ship, The Levee, and Bridie Molloy’s Friday and Saturday nights, where several acts will play 30-minute sets. The Rockhouse is involved Friday night.

A $35.00 wristband will get you into all these showcases, available here.
