Santa Monica, CA (February 18, 2016) – Audio Bloggers Live! announces its debut with the launch of a first-ever charity event which includes exhibits, lectures, panels and workshops, featuring a number of noted audio bloggers and industry legends including Bob Clearmountain (Bruce Springsteen, Roxy Music, David Bowie,) Mick Guzauski (Daft Punk, Pharrell Williams, Prince,) and Dylan Dresdow (Prince, Madonna, Usher, Nicki Minaj, Black Eyed Peas.)

The mission of the Audio Bloggers Live! Event is twofold; the first is to raise money to support the Phoenix House teen drug rehabilitation programs that use music and recording as part of a comprehensive approach to help teens battling drug and alcohol addiction, and the second is to create an event where audio friends and fans in the virtual world can gather together in the real world.
“The internet has given us amazing chances to connect with people around the world, but that also seems to keep us separated in other ways,” says Ronan Chris Murphy. ” Audio Bloggers Live! Is intended to be the first event of its kind to help friends and peers from the online world connect in person.”
