At Jazz Congress 2019's "Perfect Pitch: Will This Press Kit Get Me Booked?," independent artists were invited to submit their press kit or EPK to our panel of judges for a live review. Beyond personal feedback, the session leveraged these real life examples to highlight best practices and opportunities for artists to best represent themselves through their bios, press releases, photos, videos, press clips, etc.
Moderator: Katie Simon (WBGO/Jazz Night in America)
Panelists: Bobby D. Asher (The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center at the University of Maryland), Janis Burley Wilson (August Wilson Center/Pittsburgh International Jazz Festival), Georgina Javor (Jazz at Lincoln Center)
