CORAN CAPSHAW NAMED INNOVATOR OF THE YEAR AHEAD OF INNOVATION IN MUSIC AWARDS (IMA)

Thursday, May 10, 2018 - 11:45am

The Innovation in Music Awards has announced Coran Capshaw, founder and CEO of Red Light Management, as 2018’s Innovator of the Year. The IMAs shine the national spotlight on some of the music industry’s brightest risk takers and creative thinkers. Capshaw and his fellow honorees will be presented their awards at the Second Annual Innovation in Music Awards gala on Sunday, June 3 at the Westin Hotel in Nashville.
 
The event will be hosted by respected industry veteran and media executive Bill Werde, who is the Director of the Bandier Music Industry Program in the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communication at Syracuse University. 
 
The highly-anticipated event was created to recognize achievements in the advancement of music through inspiration and ingenuity. A blue-ribbon committee of music professionals determines the honorees.
 
“Coran Capshaw is not this successful by simply following old-school industry protocol,” said Pete O’Heeron, Chairman of the Innovation in Music Awards. “Coran inspires innovation in all he touches, building Red Light through twists on everything from the festival experience to the whole process of artist management.”
 
Last year’s inaugural IMA ceremony, which featured musical performances in addition to award presentations and moments honoring the winners, was a sell-out. Tickets to this year’s event at the Westin Hotel are available here.
 
Honorees in remaining categories will be announced next week. For a complete list of 2018 nominees and more information about the Innovation in Music Awards, visit https://innovationinmusic.net/
