You’re all invited to join me at the Long Beach Indie International Film, Media, and Music festival on Friday, Sept. 2, and Saturday, Sept. 3. I partnered with the event to program Billy Johnson Jr. Presents: The Music Series that features panel discussions on social media, running independent record labels, and even what parents should know about the music their children listen to.

Long Beach’s entertainment magazine, The Edge, wrote a nice profile on me, noting career highlights, as well as my work with the festival. Check out the article here.

I’d like to thank Dr. Daniel Walker, Long Beach Indie CEO, for bringing me on board, Abby Harris, who is moderating the How to Monetize Your Social Media Channels panel, and Tim Trudeau, who is leading the Independent Recording Artist Survival Guide discussion. Plus, all the influential panelists: Chanel Landreaux, Warren Lentz, Monee Perry, John Lenac, Vicki Mack and Claude Lataillade, Chad Hornton, Mani, Lacreshia Hoy, Lela B, John Causey, and more to be announced.
