Charleston Music Confab Recap

Charleston Music Confab (CMC) was full of networking, discussions, and education. The four-day conference featured a lot of awesome local and regional music. My biggest complaint was that there were not enough hours in the day to see and hear it all. This was the conference’s first year to include hip hop and rap artists, which I was really looking forward to. I made sure to catch Kween Katt, Abstract, and PG13. There were so many other acts I was dying to see but I ran out of time. Good problem to have!

Some standout acts that caught my attention were the Atlanta-based band, The Georgia Flood. I was first introduced to their music via Spotify’s Discover Weekly playlist (got me again, Spotify ;)). High energy, great vocals, and tight playing made this band ones to watch in the future. One local act, Abstract, was another contender in my eyes with A+ in crowd participation, engaging, and honest lyrics.

One of the great aspects of CMC was all of the people involved. All of the bands were enthusiastic to be included, the show attendees were excited to hear new artists, and the venue’s hospitality was on point. This is another great reason why the Charleston music scene is so wonderful. The support and camaraderie are creating an infrastructure for future conferences, but also making this an ideal location for artists to thrive. Make a point to attend CMC, and see for yourself. Huge thanks to Dave Stewart and the CMC team, and check out some of my favorite shots from the weekend below.
