Over the weekend an amazing annual event took place that I'm sure gave many the spark they needed to blaze new trails and create fearlessly. The founder and CEO of Amilly Entertainment, Capri Lawerence, hosted her 4th annual The Experience event. The purpose is to give artists, producers, creatives, DJs, and photographers a place to network, collaborate and create. The event was completely free to attendees and organized by Capri and her team. The event was held at Prime Records (1147 Harmony Road Suite 5 Norfolk, VA) owned by @thisisbiggz on Instagram.
The food and beverages were provided by @bomfood757 free of charge.
Batman, who is the founder and CEO of DarknightEnt sat on the panel as a guest speaker to take and answer questions. His past clientele involves the likes 2 Chainz, Wiz Khalifa, Travis Porter, K.Michelle, and DEF JAM Records he shared his expertise on branding, marketing, and strategy.
Cymandye Russell (@cymandye on Instagram), who is the current senior graphic designer and social media manager for Patchwerk Recording Studios in Atlanta, sat on the panel alongside Batman.
The questions ranged from “Is radio still important to my journey?“ to “What's the best way for an artist to start their music career?“. After the panel, Capri opened up the event for studio collaborations in the studio rooms as producers played beats for artists to write and freestyle in another area.
You could see the energy in the room as different pockets of people had in-depth conversations about music while others networked with all the other talent in the room. I think the event was a huge success. It was done at a very pivotal and critical point in the year. It was held early enough in the year that if you haven't figured out how you want to proceed with your music you have time to tweak or adjust.
I think it's important to acknowledge that the momentum and positivity of this event will hopefully carry most if not all through the year as they start releasing records, videos, and projects.
Salute to all in attendance!
