Standing at the center of the diverse and vibrant Washington, DC area music scene, the Metro Music Source provides musicians and music industry professionals a unique opportunity to connect, collaborate, and learn from others. Our mission is to foster a supportive environment for our local talent, facilitate connections and synergies within our music community, and help to raise the profile of the DC area music scene on a national level.
Through its informal monthly meetups, the MMS has brought together local musicians, record label reps, artist managers, publicists, filmmakers, graphic designers, music publishers, producer/engineers, and many others from musician-supporting industries.
The Metro Music Source was co-founded in 2009 by Dave Mallen of Innovation Station Music and Jem Bahaijoub of imaginePR. Thanks to the consistent support of local musicians and industry folks, the MMS has continued to grow, and is now hosting workshops, live music showcases, panel discussions, as well as partnering with a number of local music organizations.
