The Association of Independent Music Publishers (AIMP) will celebrate its 40th anniversary this year with events at all three of its local chapters: Los Angeles, Nashville, and New York.
Nashville’s party will be held Wednesday, Nov. 15 at The Sutler Saloon. It will celebrate the chapter’s accomplishments over the past year, which include hosting the second annual AIMP Nashville Awards, the third annual AIMP Songwriter Series, its third “Inside Scoop from Music Sups” event, and presentations from SoundExchange, Pandora, the Academy of Country Music, and more.
Founded in Los Angeles in 1977 by a group of local music publishers, the AIMP has spent the past 40 years educating and informing rights holders on hot-button issues and trends affecting the music publishing industry. Michael Eames of PEN Music Group, Inc. serves as AIMP President.
“Nashville is a city built on the backs of songwriters and music publishers, so an organization like the AIMP is absolutely essential to the way we do business here,” said AIMP Nashville Chapter Executive Director John Ozier of ole. “We’re excited to continue shining a light on Music City’s best writers as we work to educate them and all rights holders on the ins and outs of music publishing.”
Those who wish to attend the Nashville event must RSVP to email@example.com.
The New York event will be held Dec. 4 at The Princeton Club, and feature the presentation of 2017 New York Chapter Indie Awards to Representative Jerrold Nadler and Downtown Music Publishing CEO Justin Kalifowitz.
Los Angeles’ event will be held Dec. 7 at Candela La Brea and will feature the 2017 Indie Publisher of the Year award presentation to Kenny MacPherson’s Big Deal Music Group and the 2017 Special Individual Award presentation to NMPA President & CEO David Israelite.
