The countdown to the Jamaica Music Conference (JMC) is underway. With less than 30 days until the conference, anticipation is building and so are the major announcements. The latest breaking news is the speaking confirmation of music luminary Marcia Griffiths. A landmark addition to the JMC speaker lineup, “The Queen of Reggae” will participate in the popular “Artist in Focus” one-on-one interview on the final day of the ultra-comprehensive, 4-day program. Her insights on her compelling journey to greatness as well as her career longevity, among other critical topics are eagerly anticipated.
The JMC brings together high profile members of the music industry to discuss current industry issues, trends, and to plan strategies for greater success. The conference will be held November 15-18, 2018 at venues in Kingston, Jamaica.
