NASHVILLE, Nov. 5 /Christian Newswire/ -- Indieheaven.com the leading Christian independent musician resource is excited to announce their 5th annual CIA Summit conference being held March 28-29, 2008. Held near Nashville, TN, the Summit has established itself as an event that focuses on the independent musician, encouraging attendees to create momentum, and to pursue passion and excellence in their music mission. The event is quite different than other industry style music seminars, as no talent contests are held, or battles of the bands competing for industry attention.
CIA Summit founder Keith Mohr states, "There are plenty of idol types of contests and seminars, but our focus has been and will always be to renew the artist mind that they can be successful as an independent artist if they create content of excellence, have a strong work ethic, and engage in community with other independent artists. We are seeing many success stories from artists joining and using our Indieheaven.com organization, and cultivating strong relationships on our Network.
Teachers and speakers include: Indieheaven President, Keith Mohr, Sue Ross of The Inner Vizion, mainstream music guru Bob Baker of The Buzz Factor, Rick Cua, Tom Jackson, Robert Beeson of The Kindred Group, Eric Copeland of Creative Soul, Brad Mathias of Infinity Music Distribution, with many more to come!
Also planned for the days leading up to the CIA Summit, Tom Jackson will share his vast knowledge of live performance tips in a special one day seminar on March 26, 2008. On March 27, 2008, CMS Productions will hold their 2nd annual Nashville Songwriters Bootcamp, with Charlie Peacock and representatives from the CCM industry including EMI, Provident, Integrity and others. Songwriters will have their songs critiqued, and learn about the craft of writing from a seasoned panel of industry pros.
In a time of rapid change in the Christian music industry, independent artists not only must be talented, they must also be educated on how to succeed as an independent, since 99% will remain indie. The CIA Summit equips, empowers, encourages, and delivers the truth about serving Christ through the medium of music.
