Backstage Pass: Building a Music Team – Red Deer

Join Alberta Music, Liam Prost, and Ryan Langlois for a discussion on Building a Music Team. Learn about the different roles managers, agents, record labels, publishers and publicists play in helping you develop your career. Following the panel, there will be time to network and meet creatives in your community. This event is open to everyone, including Alberta Music members and non-members.

Liam Prost:

Liam Prost is a music industry multitasker, working simultaneously as Programming Manager for the BreakOut West festival and conference with the Western Canadian Music Alliance, in operations with the Calgary Folk Music Festival over eight years, 10 festivals, and four job titles, and as an independent artist manager with his own company Tamarack Records. Liam specializes in content creation as a photographer, videographer and writer.

Ryan Langlois:

Formerly fronting the multiple-award-winning Boom Chucka Boys, Langlois is no stranger to the stage. Long renowned for his performances carrying unprecedented electricity, he is a master of his surroundings, regardless of the space. The songs and stories hold heavy in a soft-seater venue full of attentive listeners, or on the big festival stages with full accompaniment. He offers an exhilarating experience of country-rock, folk, Americana, and storytelling.

His conviction and authenticity place him firmly among a class of performer that has consistently earned and continues to seek his stripes. With a voice true and persevering, this barstool balladeer continues to make his way, telling his story and singing his songs.
