From studio drummer, music-computer programmer, recording artist, record producer, composer, author, manager, inventor, educator, and label executive, Richard Burgess’s 40-year music industry career has truly spanned the spectrum of the industry, giving him the insight to now sit at the helm of A2IM to advance the voice of the independent label community. During this keynote, Bruce Houghton — Founder and President of Skyline Artist Agency, a national and international booking agency, and Publisher and Editor of Hypebot and Music Think Tank — will talk with Burgess about his deep roots in the industry and how those experiences help shape the decisions he makes day-to-day to be an advocate, educator and connector for A2IM’s over 400 label members.
