2:00PM - 3:00PM

Is a record deal still the end game for artists? Does landing “the deal” signify an artist has made it? With so many platforms to share their music with the world, are brand deals as aspirational as label deals for independent artists? Marketers are just beginning to understand the value of music for driving business. Beyond a soundtrack to an ad, the strategic use of music extends the reach of a campaign and deepens consumer engagement. For an artist, the exposure gained by having their music score a campaign, across geographies and media channels, can be the break they need to propel their careers to the next level. Join us to discuss the value of a brand deal from both perspectives.
