Can you believe it's already September? Pretty soon the TAXI Road Rally will be here and before you know it, it'll be 2008! Wow! Meantime, here's what's in store for us now:

September

This will mark the 10th anniversary of the Atlantis Music Conference and boy did they shake things up. More networking than ever. Total access to the industry. State of the art performance stages. Exhibitions. Networking parties. Educational panels. You don't want to miss this one if you're nearby.
21-29 Nashville Songwriters Association International

An entire week devoted to singing and writing. You can't beat it! This could be the only week-long educational event for writers anywhere. Learn about effective melodies, writing Pop songs, writing songs for radio, basic copyright laws, getting your first song recorded, and much more.
26-29 Sixth Annual Midpoint Music Festival
Cincinnati, Ohio

Here's a brand new twist to a music fest. All conference bands will get the chance to record a song for free. Conference attendees can watch the actual recording process and listen to the music as it's being recorded. Hundreds of local emerging bands will be there in addition to a plethora of industry guests.
27-30 Independent Music Conference
Dewey Beach, Delaware

Three nights of showcases, two days of demo listening, mentoring sessions, meet-and-greet industry events, and all the educational goodies you can ask for. This is a cool place for a weekend trek. Definitely worth attending.

"TAXI is the best listening audience that one could hope for. These guys have valuable insight into music and are very helpful with their criticisms. I am establishing some great contacts and yes, I have signed a couple of tunes to a publisher."
