San Francisco, CA (January 14, 2016)—Women’s Audio Mission (WAM) will be presenting “The Evolution of the Music Producer,” an all-women music producer panel, at the 2016 NAMM Show.
The panel will feature a lineup of veteran music producers who will discuss how the role of “music producer” has evolved over time, from the person who steers a recording project and brings out the best performance in an artist in the studio to a person who creates the electronic music and beats that shape today’s hits. “The Evolution of the Music Producer” will be held on Thursday, January 21 from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the Anaheim Convention Center.
Panelists will include Sylvia Massy, award-winning producer, artist, writer and educator who has worked with major artists from the Red Hot Chili Peppers to Tool to Johnny Cash to Prince; Merrill Garbus, the groundbreaking indie artist and producer behind the innovative musical project tUnE-yArDs, described as “astonishing” by The Village Voice and “ingenious and irresistible” by The New York Times; Asma Maroof (DJ Asma), producer and tour DJ for MIA and a member of Future Brown and Nguzunguzu; and Terri Winston, WAM’s founder and executive director.
“We’re very excited to be presenting this panel at NAMM this year,” says Winston. “Less than five percent of content you hear every day on the radio, on streaming services, on TV is created by women. These amazing producers have a wealth of experience and a lot to say. It’s great to have a platform at NAMM to share this and showcase these very different perspectives and backgrounds in music production.”.
WAM is a San Francisco-based nonprofit dedicated to the advancement of women in music production and the recording arts, trains over 1,200 women and girls every year in the only professional recording studio in the world built and run entirely by women.
