BMI once again hosted its Next Big Wave Mixer on Monday, September 11, at its Nashville location as the exclusive networking opportunity focused on pop-infused songwriters based in Music City. The evening was sponsored by Studio Bank and provided affiliates the opportunity to forge new partnerships and gain valuable insight on navigating the ever-evolving industry.
More than 40 songwriters attended the quarterly series including Marshall Altman, Jacob Bryant, Vlad Holiday, Morgxn, Kelly Paige, Amy Stroup and Bryant Taylorr, who were on-hand as BMI’s Leslie Roberts hosted the event and offered the crowd guidance, before Studio Bank’s Kari Barnhart detailed their company’s instrumental role in supporting the music community. BMI affiliates also had the opportunity to connect with BMI’s President & CEO Mike O’Neill and BMI’s Jessa Gelt from the L.A. office.
Past notable participants include HARDY, Jon Langston, Michael Ray, Mikey Reaves, Rocky Block and many more. As BMI recognizes the importance of fostering creative alliances and providing a platform for emerging songwriters, the Next Big Wave Mixer is a testament to BMI’s commitment to nurturing talent and facilitating opportunities within the music community.
