(KEYNOTE) The Definitive Creative Entrepreneur: Chris Blackwell Goes With His Gut and Brings Us Reggae

4:00 PM - 4:30 PM, Ballroom A
Moderator: Wayne Jobson

A jewel of CMW 2021 is our revelatory interview with the legendary Island Records founder Chris Blackwell. Recorded at his storied Jamaican home GoldenEye, the chat covers his discoveries – including Spencer Davis, Cat Stevens, Bob Marley & The Wailers, Grace Jones, and U2 – and his relationship-first career philosophy. Backed by historical footage and performance clips, the interview is a CMW coup, practically a sizzle reel for a feature on the 84-year-old industry lion.
