Demystifying Music Licensing for Blue Collar Musicians

In this modern landscape of the music industry, the role of music licensing has become one of the most important avenues of income for blue collar, working musicians.

On Wednesday, July 9, Marmoset will bring together a group of talented and experienced creatives to have an open conversation and help break down and demystify the fog and complexities of music licensing and what it means for you, the working artist.

We're ditching industry jargon and insider talk for an honest, transparent conversation. We'll break down the process and decision making that goes into licensing your music to film. We'll show some examples, take you through the process and help explain why decisions are made, what music works best, and the nuances behind the scenes. 

The discussion is taking place at our Headquarters - 2105 SE 7th Avenue, Portland OR 97214. Doors are at 5:30.

The event is currently filled and we're no longer accepting RSVP's. Please check back in or sign up for our newsletter to find out about our upcoming events. Thanks so much.
