“We’re celebrating NAMM back live and our 12th year running this Convention highlight”, states Indiepower founder and CEO, Jay Warsinske. “It’s always great having my dear friend and industry ally Shyan Selah join me, as well as industry powerhouse Jay Gilbert of Label-Logic, in my annual ‘Address of the Industry Nation’ of Where the Money is for Artists today and tomorrow.”

Not counting the hiatus causes by the pandemic, this marks the 5th consecutive NAMM collaboration between Jay Warsinske and Shyan Selah, who along with his charitable organization, The Selah Foundation, is currently preparing for the launch of an arts and entertainment program in the Pacific Northwest for up and coming artists and entertainment entrepreneurs.

“It’s always a great privilege to serve the betterment of our industry by ushering in new dynamic ways for Artists and Labels to thrive,” says Shyan. “Covid has not only brought a sobering pause to a lot of industry norms but has also created a fertile space for innovators to create and re-imagine the landscape. Joining my partner Jay Warsinske has become an annual endeavor, one that I treasure especially in times like these. NAMM 2022 is gonna be game changing and I’m eager to bring impact and give insights that grow careers in this amazing industry.”

NAMM 2022 takes place between June 3rd and June 5th at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, CA. The Making Music, Making Money workshop will take place Sunday at 2pm. For more information visit
