STIMULATING CREATIVE ECONOMY

iAM MUSIC events are reclaiming the spirit of collaboration inspired by a collective of musicians and creatives dreaming to give back the power of music and art to the people as a means of invoking global change.

Events will engage community, stimulate the local economy, encourage tourism, and showcase original music supporting local, regional, and touring musicians and artistic genres. All participants are encouraged to have roots in social justice, education, mentorship or a desire to strengthen the culture and community of the Southwest. Events will feature bands, visual and performing artists, iAM students, and establish partnerships with local food, venues, and businesses.

A Festival with a Cause

Founders Ashley Edwards and Jesse Ogle gathered their expansive US touring network of bands garnered through extensive road miles with their respective project (Hello Dollface) and boasted 3 years of the first iterations of iAM MUSIC Fest!, emerging as one of Colorado's largest independent music festivals and iAM MUSIC’s premiere creative annual fundraiser. This event launched a 3-day multi-headed Southwest indie fest megalith for such a small mountain town. At its largest iteration, over 300 musicians and artists took over multiple venues and stages featuring regional and national touring bands, visual and performing artists, dancers, poets, comedians robotics, circus performers, and listening spaces with convergence of local businesses and vendors. In addition, the festival hosted workshops, jam spaces, poetry readings, artist gardens, and an artist conference and opportunities for independents to network in organic environments. In 2017, iAM MUSIC was elected to host the Colorado Music Summit - an educational networking opportunity for state-wide musicians in collaboration with the Bohemian Foundation, Colorado Creative Industries and in partnership and alignment with the broader goals of the Colorado Office of International Economic Trade & Development.

In 2018, the Fest! morphed into a Summer Concert Series downtown and will continues across six months in starting June 2019. iAM MUSIC Fest! is set to clone itself in partnership with Mariposa Music Production and the NM state tourism board in Albuquerque in 2020.

 STUDENT SHOWCASES

 Students light up the stage at iAM MUSIC events.

Original compositions, performance, and self-sufficiency are at the foundation of the iAM MUSIC teaching philosophy and we believe it is crucial for building confidence and early professional artist development. We encourage our students to take their expression to the stage at the first opportunity. Most of our events and festivals will feature a student performer or project.

We offer professional showcases in multiple capacities at various venues throughout the year. Two staples include the Winter and Spring #YOUTH Showcase Series for all Studio as well as Outreach musicians, as well as a Songwriter’s Showcase later in the spring. We also offer placement opportunities for our students ready for paid performances in the community, with the option of free PA rentals our the gig-ready musicians who have had training in live sound. In addition, we host jams, mixers and showcases catering to our adult students and audiences as well. Please check our calendar for dates and schedules.
