An intimate conversation with one of rock-n-roll's top musicians, producers and film composers.


Join us for an Intimate Conversation with one of rock & roll's top musicians, producers, and film composers - Neil Giraldo!

The Albuquerque Film & Music Experience is proud to present Neil Giraldo with the 2019 AFMX Music Award. As with previous honorees - Bobby Shew, Nathan East, T Bone Burnett, and Steve Ferrone - Neil's talent as a musician, producer, and film composer have brought the world some of the most memorable sounds of the past several decades.

A songwriter with a back catalog of more than 100 songs and more than 45 million records sold, he has worked with some of the greatest artists in the music industry, including Rick Derringer, Pat Benatar, John Waite, Kenny Loggins, Rick Springfield, Steve Forbert, The Del-Lords, and Beth Hart. His work has produced many Grammy-nominated and Grammy-winning hits, and he holds the distinction of being the first guitar player appearing on MTV. Today, he continues to expand his creative portfolio: in addition to writing new songs for stage and screen, he is writing screenplays for feature films, touring, and reaching out into the community to work with musicians young and old.

Join us as Neil shares his stories, outlook on music, and experiences over the past four decades of performing and producing some of the most recognizable songs.
