AudioLock joins the American Association of Independent Music

We are proud to announce that AudioLock is now an associate member of the American Association of Independent Music (A2IM). Their team were incredibly helpful at Reeperbahn 2015, lining up some great meetings for us and we look forward to working closely with them in 2016. For others interested in better understanding the north American music independent market we highly recommend liaising with A2IM info@a2im.org

Back across the pond AIM’s annual Indie Con event is always a highlight in the music calendar and this year was no exception. It featured some highly informative panel discussions and an in depth interview with industry legend, Seymour Stein, founder of Sire Records. He was heavily involved with many household names including The Ramones, Madonna, Blondie, Talking Heads, Depeche Mode and The Pretenders and as such had some great anecdotes as well as insights into the industry.

The AudioLock team grew rapidly in 2015 and we’re now looking to recruit again. This time for an Anti-Piracy Agent based in our Southampton office. If you’d like to know more about the role please click here: http://bit.ly/1mwGxpu
