Edrian Woods currently works as an assistant to agent Lindsey Myers in the Music Touring department of Creative Artists Agency (CAA) in Nashville.
Her primary role is serving as support in the fast-paced world of festival booking for various artists on the CAA roster.
While completing her Master’s degree in Music Business and Entertainment at the University of Miami’s Frost School of Music, Woods attended the Music Biz Convention in Nashville — which she credits for kickstarting her professional music industry career and ultimately leading to her position at CAA.

To that end, it’s our great pleasure to invite you all - artists and fellow industry - to our first industry speed dating event of 2016, followed by a general networking hangout and three act showcase with Pat Dam Smyth, Joel Sarakula and He Is A Pegasus.
Thanks to Help Musicians UK for their support tonight covering costs, meaning we can keep this event free for all those interested.
