Get a glimpse inside the music business with Dave Dederer, founding member of Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum Seattle band The Presidents of the United States of America. Dave has served as the band’s “entrepreneur in residence” since inception and will share with us where the bodies are buried in the music business-who makes what and how they make it.
Dave currently also serves as VP, Business Development for Seattle digital media startup Melodeo, where he spends most of his working hours developing deals and strategies for monetizing Melodeo’s nuTsie.com website and range of mobile media products.
Performer, songwriter, record producer, music pulishing company owner, record label owner, Music 2.0 exec, Dave has seen the music business from all sides and is uniquely qualified to explain the realities of an industry most of us know just by its shiny surface.
With iTunes now a bigger music-seller than Wal-Mart, the digital music industry is poised to excel despite the discordant economy. Join us to hear Dave play a song or two and share his thoughts on the ongoing transformation of the music industry. To register, click here.
