This year MUSEXPO will also focus on the opportunities across India’s vast music eco-system; something that MUSEXPO first highlighted with an in-depth analysis back in 2006 when most of the music world was unaware or uninterested in the potential of the market.
India is one of the most burgeoning music markets in the world, as well as the world’s fastest-growing economies, largest English language-speaking territories, and home to the biggest population of millennials, as well as a growing streaming/digital, talent management, live, multi-media, sync (film, TV, interactive gaming, on-demand), mobile and traditional (recorded and publishing) music business. There seems to be an abundance of opportunities and possibilities in India.
The esteemed panel of experts from India will give an overview of the current and future potential of this vast market, and the realities of creative and commercial possibilities.

As an A&R Executive at RCA Records, Fair discovered and signed Stacy “Fergie” Ferguson in the girl-trio Wild Orchid.

KATY PERRY, JESSIE J, THE TEMPER TRAP & MANY MORE
WHO’S NEXT TO LAUNCH OR GET SIGNED FROM MUSEXPO




Since it’s launch back in 2005, MUSEXPO has been a launching pad for artists into the US and global markets – acting as a platform for key decision-makers, influencers, A&Rs, publishers, music supervisors, brands, booking agents, radio/digital and streaming platforms to unearth emerging talent, as well as leading to direct signings including worldwide deals. MUSEXPO returns in 2023 with its full and robust showcasing platform with the focus of securing strategic deals for the participating acts.
Jason Flom, President, Lava Records says, “I’ve been attending and participating in MUSEXPO for many years and I 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 to set the stage for their respective launches.”
Korda Marshall, Founder, Infectious Records said, “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.”

Some of the acts who have benefitted from showcasing at MUSEXPO and garnered a springboard into the US and global markets, or getting signed to labels, synch licensing deals and/or publishing agreements as a result of the event include the likes of Katy Perry, Frank Turner, Jessie J, The Temper Trap, LMFAO, Sheppard, Avalanche City, Gavin James, Forest Blakk, Robyn, Erik Hassle, Ida Maria, Jeremy Loops, Lime Cordiale to name just a few.

MUSEXPO is currently accepting artist showcase submissions. More information is available HERE, or contact info@anrworldwide.com for additional details.
