Going Global Music Summit announces 2019 lineup

A powerhouse lineup of acclaimed speakers has been finally revealed for this year's 'Going Global Music Summit'. This two-day music conference will be held at Auckland's Roundhead Studios from August 30 to 31.

'Going Global Music Summit' is a gateway for any local artist, manager, publicist, A&R, producer, music writer, record label and venue manager to connect with. It's a great opportunity for local musicians and managers to hear insightful ideas from forward-thinking superstars—who are currently at the forefront of the international music industry.

Heading up 2019's keynote presentations is Music Ally's CEO and co-founder, Paul Brindley. Before his adept work in the music industry, Paul has been the celebrated bassist of the indie-rock band, The Sundays. After co-founding Music Ally in 2002, the firm has gone on to become a world-leading knowledge company for the modern-day music industry. The company publishes a subscription business information service and offers a range of other services—digital marketing training and implementation, research and events to the global music business.

Also joining this year's key movers is Aotearoa's lauded musician, singer and actor, Marlon Williams. With his effortlessly distinctive tone and heartstring-plucking vibrato, Marlon has successfully gained widespread love around the world.
