Event description


What is the EVOLVE Music Conference?

Just do a Google search for the phrase “music conference” and you will get 347,000,000 results. There are a lot of great conferences, expos, and conventions out there for the unsigned artist and creative. There are conferences that allow you to network with another artist, creative and companies that can help you build your brand. There are conferences designed to give you tools to help build your brand as an independent artist. And there are events that allow you to showcase your talent and hope that someone in the crowd noteworthy puts their drink down and pays attention to you.

This is not EVOLVE. We are different because after you’ve learned all you can, built all you can build and do all the networking with producers, artist, PR companies and studios you are still left trying to get in front of an A&R at a major record label.

EVOLVE is the only conference that puts you in direct contact with an A&R from a major record label like WEA, Sony, and Universal.

We are the only industry conference that is bringing you to top executives who are the actual decision makers. These aren’t a bunch of “mail room” A&Rs.

We are limiting EVOLVE to only 100 meetings so that we can make sure everyone gets the opportunity to get heard and that this doesn’t turn in to another packed event where you walk away with a bunch of other peoples demos.

What can I expect if I attend EVOLVE?

The first night of our workshop will be split into 3 parts. The first part will be a presentation from the casting A&R from Fox’s The Four: The Battle For Stardom.

The second part will a presentation by our panelist about how to craft your brand and project to make it attractive to a label. The panelist for "How To Identify Music's Next Superstar" are Jordan Pollack VP of Experiential from Cognet Entertainment, Greg Mateo GM of Insomniac Records, Alec Udell Th3rd Brain Manager, and Ferry Rais-Shaghagi Head of EDM from APA.

The third part will be a 45-minute discussion about how best to pitch an A&R. This session is specially designed for our attendees who will be meeting with an A&R on Saturday. However, this is a great opportunity for ALL attendees. In this session, you will be coached on exactly how to pitch each A&R, what metrics to show them, how to sell yourself and how to answer any question they throw at you.

At the end of our Friday night sessions, you will be given an opportunity to sign up for an audition with The Four and to also purchase a meeting ticket for Saturday if you have not already done so.

The second day is the big day. That’s the day you will be meeting with the A&R. Be prepared with at least 4 songs. You will have a 10-minute private meeting with the A&R and there you will get to use the tactics you learned in the first meeting to pitch yourself as an artist, producer, songwriter, band, group or creative.

**Saturday’s session is ONLY for those who have purchased a Platinum Admission ticket.


Where is the conference at?

The EVOLVE Conference is being held in Los Angles, California. Once you purchase your tickets we will send out the address for Friday night. The location for Saturday will be given to you on Friday when you check-in. The reason we are doing it this way is to prevent an overcrowded event. We are not selling tickets at the door and we do not want a bunch of people just showing up thinking they can get in. It is very important to us that we keep this event professional and intimate.

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Please bring your ID when coming to the event. And If you are a minor you must bring a parent or guardian with you to both days of the event. If you are a minor and have not brought a parent with you we will not be able to let you into the event.

What can I bring to the event?

  • Bring 4 songs or your completed EP ready to play on your phone or device
  • 45-second music video clip (if you have)
  • Press kit and/or a brief bio
  • Notebook and pen to take notes with on Friday night
  • If you plan on signing up for an audition with The Four please bring your music on a USB drive or be prepared to give them links to your YouTube, SoundCloud or website so they can listen to your music. They will not be doing on the spot singing auditions.
