Reframing the Narrative - the Modern Music Industry in the Front Range

The Front Range (Denver/Boulder/FoCo) is often portrayed--and internally viewed--as a 'little brother' to more established 'music cities' like Nashville, Austin, and Seattle. But is this actually a fair characterization? Join us for a panel discussion with some of Colorado’s most accomplished music business professionals to discuss where the Front Range's music industry currently stands within the national scene, where it came from, and where it's going. The presentation will include a frank discussion about how to reframe the conversation to appropriately portray Denver and FoCo/Boulder as the vibrant, collective music capital they are. Join us to explore evolving industry trends within the local and national music scenes, with vantages from multiple areas of local music businesses, including private, non-profit, and startup perspectives.
