Dear SAMRO Member,
Welcome to another edition of the Beat Bulletin. We hope all of you have been keeping warm this winter season.
In this issue, we take a look at the importance of finding the right management team that will support your career aspirations in the music industry. This is a great read for anyone looking to jumpstart their music career or looking to have a broader understanding of what it is exactly that managers do in the music industry.
Have a look at the incredible story of up and coming Hip Hop artist, Killah Gee who against all odds has been building a name for himself in the music industry.
We are also excited to announce that we have produced a series of animated videos with simple step by step guides that explain how the SAMRO processes work. This month we present you with the animated video on how SAMRO distributions work.
In an exclusive interview with Beat Bulletin, we spoke to one of the hottest music producers and publishers in the country, Thabiso ‘Thasman’ Tsotetsi. Look out for the podcast and vidcast of the interview!
SAMRO Foundation recently announced twelve semi-finalists for the SAMRO Overseas Scholarship Competition. Good luck to all the talented vocalists who will be competing live during the intermediate round set to take place on 27 August 2015.
On a sad note, we bid farewell to two late SAMRO members, David Masondo – founding member of the legendary Soul Brothers and well-known Afrikaans musician Fredi Nest Esterhuizen. May their souls rest in peace.
As we head towards warmer weather, check out the upcoming events for August and remember you can submit your upcoming gigs to be featured on our website.
We hope you enjoy this edition of The Beat Bulletin, and we look forward to your feedback, thoughts and comments. If you would like to be profiled in our newsletter please send an email request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yours in music,
General Manager: Marketing
