After speaking with many up-and-coming producers and hearing their frustrations, Sherman Entertainment Enterprises (SEE) and Babyboi95 Music Group (BB95 MG) decided to cater to producers by providing them with an exclusive outlet—“The Sessions.”
“The Sessions” will be an exclusive, monthly event that will gather an intimate group of a given city’s producers and give them the opportunity to have their work heard by some of the music industry’s tastemakers and notable producers. After the tracks are played, the group will review each other’s material and will also receive critiques from the guest tastemakers and producers. Some of these guests include Keith Kennedy (VP of TJ’s DJ’s); J Bo (member of the Youngbloodz); and Karol Russell (Entertainment Attorney) among others yet to be announced. “The Sessions” will be held in a different city each month, for the remainder of 2009, totaling six events broken down as follows:
- Two (2) events in Florida (Jacksonville and Tampa)
- Two (2) events in Georgia (Valdosta and Savannah)
- One (1) event in South Carolina (Columbia)
- One(1) event in North Carolina (Raleigh)
Access to these events will be selective and exclusive, thereby attracting producers that take their craft seriously.
Unlike artists, many producers do not understand the need for self-promotion. “The Sessions” will provide pointers on promotion and branding, as well as how to gain placements so that new producers will be able to generate credits as well as other opportunities. The cost for each session will be $40 and admission will be on a first-come-first-serve basis. Tickets will be available for purchase via http://www.eventbrite.com.
