MUSIC BIZ HALL OF FAME CLASS OF 2019

The Music Business Association’s Hall of Fame inductees are legends and icons one and all. The class of 2019 includes the late Sir George Martin, who’ll be inducted by his son, Giles Martin; the Atlantic, Capitol and Sub Pop labels; Atlantic co-founders Ahmet Ertegun, Herb Abramson and Miriam Abramson; the Apollo Theatre, CBGB, Hitsville U.S.A., Sun Studio, and the Troubadour; and Rolling Stone magazine.

“With the introduction of the Hall of Fame at last year’s Music Biz Conference, we sought to recognize the inspiration of those industry stalwarts who came before us and laid the groundwork for the vibrant industry we are now a part of,” Music Biz topper Jim Donio noted. “We believe the slate of inductees who will be honored at this year’s ceremony represent the gamut of some of the most influential names in our industry’s history. And, we are especially thrilled to welcome Giles to this year’s celebration as we honor his father’s legacy.”

And we, too, are thrilled that the inductees include several individuals and locations featured in our Black Music History coverage.
