The 2014 EMP Pop Conference offers more than 100 presentations exploring the subject of music and mobility. First held in 2002, the annual Pop Conference mixes together ambitious music writing of every kind, in an attempt to bring academics, critics, musicians, and dedicated fans into a collective conversation. The conference begins Thursday night, April 24, with a keynote discussion "You Gotta Move: Artists Talk About Life on the Road and Music in Motion" featuring Sharon Jones, Mike McCready, Meshell Ndegeocello, and Alynda Lee Segarra. A range of panels fill up Friday and Saturday, and conclude Sunday morning with topics like: Chuck Berry’s “Maybellene,” Woody Guthrie’s rambles, and touring in the era of Jim Crow; SoundCloud economies, pop crossover as social mobility, and the journey of Beyoncé; and Mexican border songs and yacht rock.
