For Immediate Release - Black Panda PR - Tulum, QR Mexico – MAY 19, 2015 - Michele Clark is credited with the success of hundreds of songs and the artists who wrote them throughout her 25 year career in the music business. Matchbox Twenty, Hootie & the Blowfish, Coldplay, Maroon 5, Train, Norah Jones, Jewel, John Mayer, The Dave Matthews Band, Lenny Kravitz, Jason Mraz and so many more.
Her final Sunset Sessions "convention" took place on the sacred sands of her own all-inclusive health, wellness & spiritual growth "Life Source Retreats" at the luxury properties of Alaya Tulum, Villa Pescadores and Ahau Tulum. While this was officially the last Sunset Sessions convention, the magic and enthusiasm it created set the stage for a new incarnation of the event, and details are already in the works for a 2016 event. Standout musical performances by Icelandic transplants Kaleo, Canadian sensation Half Moon Run along with American rock acts Alpha Rev (Austin-LA), Hollis Brown (NYC), Panic is Perfect (SF), TROPO (LA), and Shawn Pereira (LA) caught the eyes and ears of industry tastemakers throughout the week. The conference concluded Saturday May 2 under the Mayan moonlight with local artists Micca, Bandikoro, La Sabrosa Sabrosura & Chak and a rousing collaboration and tributes to King and Clark among the headlining acts and special guest players Bruce Sudano and Wesley Geer of Korn. Metric world premiered songs from their forthcoming album as well.
Clark co-founded "Life Source Retreats" in Tulum with spiritual entrepreneur & world renowned architect/designer David Graziano. She's also always woven her spiritual practices into her industry conventions by including teachers such as Mastin Kipp, Rev. Michael Bernard Beckwith, Dr. Peebles, Erik Logan, Francis Dunnery and many others in her 18 years of Sunset Sessions conventions.
This year included morning beachfront yoga classes, sweating with the shamans, a Mayan clay beach ceremony where artists, record labels, managers, radio programmers, music supervisors and other VIPs had "life changing" experiences and as always, music for the soul. This was unlike any convention the industry has ever known.
Clark now resides in Tulum and is host to regular retreats including the upcoming “Journey to the Heart" (May 25 -30) hosted by Spiritual Leader Erin Toppenberg and is leading "Live Life on Purpose: The Law of Attraction" (June 8-13).
“I’m dedicated to sharing my passion for music, learning & growing with others. I have 30 years of experience connecting people in a way they may not ever connect otherwise- human to human. The medicine is in the music!" says Clark.
Sunset Sessions and Life Source Retreats continue Clark’s legacy in that way too. In addition to supporting The Recording Academy's MusiCares, Rock to Recovery & L.S.A.I.L., they also support local families as well as providing cooperative opportunities from this years’ sessions to the organization Amigos de Sian Kaan & Musicosophia within the Mayan community. Clark donated many showcase spots to local artists as well.
“Even though this is the last Sunset Sessions convention, I’m surely not leaving the music business," laughs Clark. “The Sunset Sessions brand will continue to exist in new and exciting ways... With over 500 alumni artists & 18 years of history, how could it not? And now I can finish up my book!"
Sunset Sessions artists have gone on to tour and write together, sign record deals, find their managers, booking agents, festivals, producers, and of course – they’ve topped the radio charts, sold millions. They got played in TV shows, movies, video games, networks & commercials and so many have won Grammy Awards! Most importantly, they’ve gone on to become friends with the executives who helped launch their careers. Sunset Sessions is a community now and THAT is a legacy that will never diminish.
