The Innovation in Music Awards has announced Coran Capshaw, founder and CEO of Red Light Management, as 2018’s Innovator of the Year. The IMAs shine the national spotlight on some of the music industry’s brightest risk takers and creative thinkers. Capshaw and his fellow honorees will be presented their awards at the Second Annual Innovation in Music Awards gala on Sunday, June 3 at the Westin Hotel in Nashville.
The event will be hosted by media executive Bill Werde, who is the Director of the Bandier Music Industry Program in the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communication at Syracuse University.
The IMAs were created to recognize achievements in the advancement of music through inspiration and ingenuity. A blue-ribbon committee of music professionals determines the honorees.
“Coran Capshaw is not this successful by simply following old-school industry protocol,” said Pete O’Heeron, Chairman of the Innovation in Music Awards. “Coran inspires innovation in all he touches, building Red Light through twists on everything from the festival experience to the whole process of artist management.”
Honorees in remaining categories will be announced next week. For a complete list of 2018 nominees and more information about the Innovation in Music Awards, visit innovationinmusic.net.
