Conceived as a globally influenced, urban focused music forum to showcase new and emerging neo-soul artists and discuss trends in Soul Music, the first conference was launched in only four weeks proving an existence of a pent up demand for a conference of this kind.

Remaining an industry leader on this issue, ISMS has continued to be a platform to introduce artists to emerging methods and technologies that allow Independent artists to promote and market their music.
