Ryhna Thompson to speak at MEGAPHONO Festival Conference Event: Finding (and Keeping) Your Music Fam

There comes a point in every artist’s career when they reach their maximum capacity for emails and logistics, and consider adding other members to their team: managers, publicists, booking agents. With a massive undersupply of these types of roles in any given city, artists are often faced with the tough task of selling themselves, and not the other way around. How does one find the right people to add to your team, and what does it take to convince them to work with you? Ryhna Thompson, along with a panel of six other industry professionals will be discussing these questions on February 9th at 2:30pm at the Metcalfe Hotel (123 Metcalfe).
