Contact: Jimmie Howard FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (404)[masked] E-mail: [masked] The American Lifestyle & Entertainment Association (ALEA) Presents “Radio, Reps & Record Breakers Music Workshop” MACON, GA, March 6— Want to know what it takes to make it in the music industry? The American Lifestyle & Entertainment Association (ALEA) will host a music business workshop and one-hour tour of the Georgia Music Hall of Fame on Tuesday, March 30, at 12 p.m. “All aspiring musicians and moguls should be at this music workshop,” says Jimmie Howard, founder and president of ALEA. “This isn’t your typical music conference with unknown music industry execs. These are professionals who are out there making it happen for themselves and for some of your favorite artists out right now.” The all-star lineup includes Beyoncé Alowishus, DJ Scream, Bigga Rankin and Ron Hurd. Beyoncé Alowishus, the moderator of the two-hour discussion, is an on-air personality for Atlanta’s Hot 107.9. DJ Scream, who began as a DJ over 15 years ago in Decatur, has toured with D4L, Crime Mob, Plies and Shawty Lo. Bigga Rankin is the vice president and head of A&R at Young Jeezy’s record label, Corporate Thugz Entertainment. Ron Hurd is the regional director of marketing and promotions at Def Jam Records. The conversation, which hopes to “put more emphasis on the business of the music business,” will focus on: strategies to promote and get music on the radio, the steps toward getting a record deal, trends in the music industry, and the pros and cons of small independent labels versus big-name record deals. The session will be open to questions and will also provide artists with a prime opportunity to network and meet other aspiring music professionals.
