This year’s opening keynote speaker will be journalist, author and writer Fred Bronson! Many people know Fred Bronson from his work with Dick Clark and his appearances on American Idol. But what people may not know is that Fred Bronson is perhaps singularly more significant than both of those entities combined, and his contribution and work – by way of his Billboard books – far more invaluable.


Also, new speakers are still being added to the CMIS! Jamie Purpora, President of TuneCore Publishing will be speaking on a panel (The Royalty Compensation War) with James Leach from SESAC. Head to www.tramaientertainment.com for more details.


Singer, songwriter, producer, vocal coach and artist developer Robert “RAab” Stevenson, who is known as the vocal coach to stars like Justin Timberlake, Rihanna, Kelly Rowland and more, will be teaching a Vocal Workshop at CMIS 2013!
