MUSEXPO TO BRING ANOTHER ROUND OF UNDISCOVERED TALENT TO 2018 EVENT



As MUSEXPO prepares its 2018 program, its 20th global edition, the event has opened up its showcasing artist submissions to once again seek out the world’s most exciting, undiscovered talent for its widely-regarded showcases in Los Angeles. As one of the most premiere showcasing events in the world, MUSEXPO offers every artist the best and most talented sound engineers, superior soundstage dynamics, professional backline and overall showcase experience, all within the walls of LA’s leading showcase venue, the iconic SIR Studios. MUSEXPO’s showcase opportunities, with only one artist performing at any given time, ensure that all artists have the ability to deliver to their best performance in front of the wide array of global music industry executives who attend the event’s showcases.

Over the years MUSEXPO has been a pivotal in helping acts get signed and/or launched on to the global stage. Past MUSEXPO showcase artists include Katy Perry, Jessie, J, Robyn, The Temper Trap, Frank Turner, Sheppard, Avalanche City, Gavin James, LMFAO and many others.

Jason Flom, CEO for Lava Records & Lava Music Publishing says, “I've been attending and participating in MUSEXPO for many years and it love it! MUSEXPO showcases that I did very early in their careers brought Katy Perry and Jessie J to the attention of key global tastemakers and helped set the stage for their respective launches.”

Korda Marshall, BMG’s, EVP of Music shares, “It was pure serendipity that my teenage children dragged me along to The Borderline to see an unknown new Australian act called The Temper Trap playing their first UK gig. I was totally blown away by their songs and performance and would like to thank the A&R Worldwide organization for being brave enough to include them at MUSEXPO Europe 2008 in England to play what's now become a legendary debut London show. A&R Worldwide have always championed great new talent in a way that is sorely lacking these days; their enthusiasm, knowledge and networking is exactly what drives this great business. Their ability to link developing artists with music executives and radio producers and their unerring support to connect like-minded people on a worldwide basis is truly unique.”
