 “I’m quite pleased to be invited by Kevin Shine to share knowledge that empowers songwriters, and to show them how to easily and systematically protect and defend their intellectual property rights,” said Angela K. Durden. “There are too many entities out there now quite willing to use the great songs written by songwriters and the music produced by artists, but who also can’t quite seem to share the profits with either.

“I’ve always been one who believes in giving credit where credit is due – and that includes getting paid for what is rightfully yours. Unfortunately, many songwriters and artists are not aware of how to properly do that. My panel will address those steps.”

“I’ve known Angela for several years. She was first introduced to me at SESAC, where she is affiliated as a writer and publisher. But what I know best is that she’s always a great supporter of good business practices that strengthen the music business; and she requires everyone she does business with to hold to the same strong business standards,” said event founder Kevin Shine. “For those who attend the conference on Friday, they will have the enlightening experience of hearing Angela explain how to plug holes in publishing and writing income streams.”

Durden is the author of the book Navigating the New Music Business as a DIY& Indie: Coming Clean with the Down and Dirty, available through Amazon in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., and the E.U. She has also authored other business and children’s books, and Twinkle: a memoir.

She is also CEO of Notes2Bucks LLC, which offers services designed to protect and defend intellectual property rights of creators through
