"Since the music industry began, so many people, who do what I do for a living, created barriers and problems for which the DC Music Summit works tirelessly to overcome; I joined DCMS to be a part of the solution," said Howard Rabach, a DCMS volunteer and owner of Machine Room Studio, a Virginia-based full-service production workspace that has elevated the careers of D.C.-based artists since 2010.
DCMS has a proud history of accelerating the careers of independent musicians, with a focus on women, communities of color, and other underrepresented groups. Since 2016, DCMS has served hundreds of individuals each year at its Summit, bringing together musicians, industry professionals, and influencers to advance the D.C. creative scene. Seasoned, independent, emerging, and new artists are welcomed with open arms into the DCMS community.
"I became a volunteer for the DC Music Summit because I want artists and musicians to understand that success comes to those who are prepared to take advantage of every opportunity,"
