CMJames Part 3: Music Marathon Day 2

NYUOne thing that prevails more-so in the music community than other arenas is the sense of camaraderie and community. Just a few examples of this in the Columbia area include the generosity of donors to the Prettier than Matt Kickstarter campaign,  the rally of support for Aaron Graves during his health battle (http://www.tumorschmumor.com), and the celebration of the life of Robert Newton at the Fountain in Five Points this past summer. Not to mention the great work that WXRY does in supporting local, unsigned and emerging artists altogether.
Well, after attending numerous industry panels and discussions at the CMJ Music Marathon I am stunned to see that this same kinship also exists at the international level. Artists, publicists, radio station managers and industry leaders alike are quick to offer help and share solutions, long after sessions are up. It is reaffirming to say the least.
