Making Music 

Who wants to learn how to make a living making music?

On Saturday, October 18th, from noon to 7 p.m., the Memphis chapter of the Recording Academy hosts its Indie Impact Music Conference. The educational conference is aimed at independent artists, labels, and managers and is designed to bring those with an interest in creating and distributing music independently into contact with established industry artists and executives.

This year's conference will showcase a variety of music-industry professionals who have worked with everyone from Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder to Buddy Guy and Modest Mouse. It's an opportunity to network with and learn from people such as John Hampton, the Grammy-winning sound engineer who worked the board for The Replacements' Pleased to Meet Me; Billy Hume who has produced recordings for Will Smith, David Banner, Lil John, and Ludicrous; and Gilly Roswell, the music supervisor for such films as The Great Debaters and The Commitments.

A Producers Showcase at the New Daisy Theater will follow the conference.

"The Indie Impact Music Conference" Saturday, October 18th, from noon to 7 p.m., at the Westin Hotel, 170 Lt. George W. Lee. Admission to the conference is free for Recording Academy members. Admission is $25 for the public.
