The guest speakers will discuss their journeys in the industry and share how others can establish and grow their music careers. Each talk will also feature question-and-answer sessions led by the summit’s organizer, Kick Lee.

“They’re giving us advice, sound advice. They’re giving us experience. They’re letting us know that they went through the same mud and dirt that we are going through or that we’ve been through. When you hear that face to face with those individuals, that’s inspiring,” said Lee, the founder and executive director of Cincinnati Music Accelerator.
