AMPAL Music Industry Forum: Report

AMPAL Industry Forum , Melbourne- co-presented by THE BIZ

On May 18th, The Biz co-presented a music industry discussion forum featuring a number of industry professionals including Ian James from Mushroom Publishing, Tim Janes from Shock and Rae Harvey Manager of The Living End.

For me the highlight was really Rae Harvey.  Her main message was really to just get out there and do-it-yourself.  She reckons that the best way to learn about the industry is to throw yourself and the deep end and just starting doing.  You don't need to intern, you don't need to work for someone else.  Just start your own business and start taking on the big players.

I agree.  Great words of advice.
