Executive Director, Make Music New York
James began his career in the music business as a songwriter and post-punk rocker, but after the tour van of his most promising band (Idle, Big Deal Records) caught fire en route from a gig, he settled into the more respectable life of an arts presenter. He now has over twenty-five years of leadership experience producing music for Paradigm Associated Labels, Reel to Reel Records, City Parks Foundation/Central Park SummerStage, Westhampton Beach PAC and currently as Executive Director of Make Music New York.
Mondo Zoom Conversation: Mondo & CMW Co-Host Be Present Everywhere: Introductions & Connections
5/18/21, 9:00 PM
Join our global town hall as Mondo -- in partnership with Canadian Music Week and LyricFind -- introduces you to the global community of music conferences, trade missions, partners, consultants, organizers and creatives. The panel series, hosted by Robert Singerman, debuted on a Mondo zoom over a year ago at the start of the pandemic and has since brought hundreds of international colleagues and thousands of new friends together to speak at virtual conferences from NYC and Toronto to Kenya, Rio & LA, with other virtual forays to & from dozens of cities and countries spanning the globe to Be Present Everywhere (while staying home). Meet these global specialists w/o the flights, hotels, per-diems, carbon, $$ and family costs. Many thousands of new music community connections have already been made and many more will be made here, through active chats, shared contacts, new business introductions, collaborations and experiential education. It's a lot of fun for all, like a great Mondo/CMW/LyricFind conference party. Thanks much to the amazing speakers joining and all participants.
