SAW is partnering with the City of Gaithersburg and Domenic Cicala to present a music business workshop with Charlie Faye & Concert with her group, Charlie Faye & the Fayettes on November 18.
Charlie Faye is known for having an innovative way of doing things. She put herself on the map back in 2010 when she did a 10-month residency tour living in a different city each month, putting together a new band of local musicians, and recording a new song in each city. Charlie Faye & The Fayettes (YouTube video) has garnered major media attention and critical praise, rising into the top 20 on the Americana Radio Chart and getting songs placed in major network television shows.
Charlie often does consulting for other independent artists, using her knowledge to help other musicians get their projects off the ground. She works with newbies who are releasing a record for the first time, and experienced artists who have been in the business for decades. Charlie will answer questions about recording and releasing an album, marketing, publicity, radio promo, sync licensing, self-management, and efficient touring, among other topics.
SAW president, Jay Keating will interview Charlie as part of this workshop. There will be a Q&A session following the interview, and participants. Sign up for both the workshop and concert and receive a 20% discount (use code "SAW20" to get the discount). See Facebook event.
