An Intimate Outreach Lunch with Russ

On Saturday, June 3rd, the Recording Academy ® Washington, D.C. Chapter had an intimate lunch with rising artist and new Columbia Records partner, Russ, at The Hard Rock Cafe in Baltimore, MD. The lunch was very informative as Russ shared some of his ideas and concepts about navigating music through an age of social media. He highlighted his fans/ engagement with SoundCloud, his ability to headline and sell out his own shows with no openers, as well as his do's and don'ts for successful social media activation. Throughout the lunch guests received a better glimpse of his world and in exchange the members provided Russ with more insight regarding his new membership into the Recording Academy, the P&E Wing® and an informal GRAMMY 101 from an engaged member’s point of view. It was truly an exchange.
