Los Angeles, CA (April 13, 2018)—Women’s Audio Mission (WAM) has announced WAM @ Capitol, its first recording arts conference for women. The event will be held on June 9, 2018 at Capitol Studios in Los Angeles.
Designed to be an immersive recording arts conference for women, WAM @ Capitol will include sound engineer Marcella “Ms. Lago” Araica (Beyoncé, Britney Spears, Madonna); COO of Capitol Music Group Michelle Jubelirer; vice president of Capitol Studios Paula Salvatore; music producer/songwriter, Shakari “TRAKGIRL” Boles (Jhene Aiko, Luke James); and WAM executive director and founder Terri Winston.
“We’re delighted to partner with the iconic Capitol Studios to bring WAM’s training programs to Los Angeles,” said Winston. “WAM @ Capitol offers an incredible line-up of top women engineers, music producers and music industry executives who will provide unparalleled professional development opportunities to emerging women music producers and engineers in Los Angeles and beyond.”
Women’s Audio Mission trains more than 1,500 women and girls a year in the recording arts to address the lack of women in the audio industry, estimated to be less than 5%. The conference will bring WAM’s curriculum to Los Angeles for the first time as it includes presentations, discussions and interactive workshops on topics ranging from mixing, beat making and mic placement to the music business. The day will close with a networking reception.
The conference is open to women (transgender and cisgender), non-binary and gender non-conforming individuals.
