On Monday (10/7) BMI and Pinnacle Bank hosted Music Row’s youngest professionals for an evening of networking in BMI’s Nashville office. The second of three sessions in the Next Big Wave series, attendees of this installation were rising industry tastemakers. The evening provided an opportunity for the budding creatives to connect with other professionals at similar points in their careers. Attendees included River House’s Zebb Luster, Curb/Word’s Nina Jenkins, Warner Chappell’s Jessi Vaughn, Big Loud’s Michael Giangreco and many more.
Designed to forge personal relationships, foster professional connections and inspire growth and creativity within budding careers, each event in the series is specifically tailored to a different group of new arrivals. With three evenings dedicated respectively to songwriters without publishing deals, new music industry hires and songwriters who have recently secured their first publishing deal, attendees have the opportunity to mix and mingle with their peers. BMI’s Creative team is on-hand for a unique opportunity to network and educate attendees about BMI’s role in their individual careers. The series allows Nashville’s rising talent to create lasting relationships with BMI and beyond for a stronger Music Row community.
