A2IM CEO Richard Burgess Interviewed By Skyline's Bruce Houghton At MusicBiz
Posted: May 16, 2017
(Hypebot) I'll be in Nashville most of this week for the annual Music Biz convention. This Thursday May 18th at 3:45 PM, as part of the Hypebot and Music Biz Indie Music Forum, I'll be interviewing Richard Burgess, the CEO if the American Association Of Independent Music (A2IM) live on stage.

By Bruce Houghton

Currently CEO for the American Association of Independent Music (A2IM), Richard James Burgess Ph.D. has produced many gold, platinum, and multi-platinum albums.

Burgess has been a major label recording artist and composer with hit records in his own right; was a studio musician of note, and has worked internationally for most major labels as a producer, engineer, re-mixer and manager of artists and producers. He is known for his pioneering work with synthesizers, computers, and sampling; as an inventor of the SDSV drum synthesizer, and for coining the music genre terms EDM and New Romantic.

He was most recently a co-executive producer and project director for Jazz: The Smithsonian Anthology, a seven-year project chronicling more than a century of jazz at Smithsonian Folkways Recordings in Washington DC.

Please join us on Thursday afternoon for what I promise will be a lively conversation. There will be plenty of time for questions.

I hope that you go to see one of our Skyline Artists Agency clients, Carl Palmer of Emerson Lake & Palmer fame and his amazing band, at the opening night all star concert.

My dance card is pretty full all week, but I hope to see many of you in the hallways and at the truthfully amazing array of sessions.
