Founder / Artist Manager, Inter Idoru Artist Management
Tokyo-based, American-born, Apryl Peredo is a multi-faceted music industry professional. She titles herself as an Artist Manager, but she does more than simply manage. Her early experience as an awful bass player in a punk band led to a position as an A&R intern for EMI, Radio Promotion Assistant and seasonal studio manager for Cotton Row Studios in Memphis TN. Later she began hosting a radio show and co-coordinating weekend music festivals and events in Dallas, Texas. Now in Tokyo she runs the gamut from: co-writing and editing English lyrics for Japanese anime, pop, and rock bands, assembling ensemble bands for special projects, and hands-on artist development. She has worked with large festivals such as Countdown Japan! and Warped Japan as well. She is regularly called on by those making short and feature-length films when an “expert” is needed on Japanese modern music to suit a scene. With first-hand knowledge of the ins-and-outs of the ever-changing music industry in general and Japan-specific, and a clear vision of how to help musicians further their careers, she hosts workshops on social media use, publishing, best booking practices, touring regionally and overseas, and long-term planning and goal-setting. In addition to her main work with Japanese domestic artists developing within Japan, she also helps non-Japanese artists who wish to experience, explore, and grow within the Japanese music market by coordinating and managing tours, developing entrance strategy, and approaching labels and distributors.
Apryl is speaking at
This session (NOT A TYPICAL PANEL!), will focus on international collaboration of the music community, exemplified by the co-sponsors, speakers and Screen X Screen, who together work for all; across country and language differences, for creators, fans and committed music executives in all areas to facilitate international trade and development. It will offer introductions and connections for all participants in a fast paced, informative, networking bonanza. It's a result of 5 years of CAB and Mondo, all with LyricFind support, and 4 years of all of us, including many of the speakers, working closely with Indie Week and with CIMA and many others. In a tragic time for too many, we come together to celebrate the individuals and organizations, including all Indie Week delegates, who continue to network, learn, move forward, solve problems, work together, beyond any perceived differences, always for mutual benefit. It will be fun! Chats and direct messages will be flowing. Just afterwards, there will be a networking afterparty of breakout rooms, as I'm sure you've all experienced on Zoom over the past months.
