Big mistake- it now generates more than $10 billion per year and has moved beyond its musical roots, transforming into a dominant and increasingly lucrative lifestyle. Baltimore has an enormous amount of talent, yet remains behind the forefront of other major cities, like Atlanta, who serves as home to many major record label-recording artists.

This panel is to discuss the ins and outs of the business as it pertains to (a) striving artist in the city of Baltimore.
