The Sunset Sessions Events are music industry “conventions” which bring together multiple sects of the music industry that would not otherwise intersect. Sunset Sessions is held over three days and nights, twice a year. February, which is the flagship event, focuses on the Triple A format of music and June’s Sunset Sessions Rock event focuses on the Active Rock and Alternative formats of music. Sunset Sessions main purpose is to expose these music industry gatekeepers to the freshest new talent while also treating them to performances by some legendary favorites. Event attendees include radio programmers, music supervisors from film, television, ads, commercials, games & sports, along with artist managers, major & independent record labels, TV bookers, press, booking agents, brands, and dozens of artists. These tastemakers are there with open ears and hearts to discover and help break bands. Sunset Sessions is the single most powerful “one stop shop” for an artist to have a chance to be heard by people who can change their careers and hundreds of alumni successes prove how well it works.
Our primary purpose is to “Give Artists a True Chance to be Heard”. February 2014 will mark our 17th year accomplishing this mission. The Sunset Sessions brand has recently expanded to include a songwriter’s retreat as well as a national tour and will continue to do so in 2014 with a two night sanctioned Sunset Sessions SXSW Showcase which will feature are alumni from both the Triple A and Rock events.
