This week Newark based GMLV team members (Loretta, Andres and Brittany) flew off to Los Angeles, CA and met up with Los Angeles based GMLV partner Barbie, to attend the 7th annual ASCAP “I Create Music Expo.” Launched in 2006, the ASCAP expo is the first and only national conference dedicated to songwriting and composing. Thursday April 19, proved to be a busy yet informative day for the group, as they were constantly moving from meetings to seminars. Past attendees of the expo include big names: Sara Bareilles, Justin Timberlake and John Mayer. I wonder who the GMLV team will encounter this year.
As representatives of GMLV, Loretta, Barbie, Andres and Brittany, listened in on what the up and coming trends of the music industry are. Incorporating their knowledge and hands on approach with ASCAP, the expo will be a great chance for the group to network with industry leaders. The team was excited for the exposure GMLV would receive and for the opportunity to represent the GMLV team.
Keep an eye out for our next blog post where we will recap what Loretta, Barbie, Andres and Brittany learned while in Los Angeles and how GMLV plans on moving forward with this information.
