In association with Vortex Music Magazine and J-Fell Presents, MOGO Music Festival is hosting another FREE Music Business Forum for ANYONE IN THE PORTLAND MUSIC COMMUNITY who wishes to learn more about music business best practices. This session will explore the techniques and tools for creating great audio/visual content, a critical skill for any musician/artist promoting in the digital age.


Kevin S. Hahn is the owner of Portland's Opal Studio, a space that has built a reputation as a top-notch creative and affordable recording/mixing facility. Clients include The Scorpions, Portland Trail Blazers, Paul Gilbert, Animotion, Buckcherry, Voodoo Doughnut, Poison Idea, Burgerville and many others.

Aaron Colter is a co-founder of Banana Stand Media (Portland's DIY documentarians who have recorded hundreds of live records and videos in their basement as well as locales around town), a freelance writer with work in outlets like Huffington Post and Wired, and a marketing professional for various industries, including publishing, technology and environmentalism.

Trumpeter Farnell Newton is one of the most versatile musicians and educators in the Northwest, playing straight-ahead jazz, smooth jazz, Latin music, soul, hip-hop, funk and more with the likes of Jill Scott and Bootsy Collins. A bandleader of The Othership Connection, record label head, founder of the Portland Black Music Fest, father of five, and artist curator for Marmoset, this cat has got his hands in everything!

And if you can't make it in person, the event will also be live streamed thanks to our partners at AudioGlobe:
