We have all types of musical genres represented in our Elite students at the Savvy Musician Academy, and some of these genres are so unique that you can assume there’s no audience for them. Not true, and our special guests in this episode are proof of that!
Jacqueline and Augustus of The Galaxy Electric are a fun musical duo whose niche “cosmic tape music” has a dedicated following of like-minded fans who celebrate both the music and the culture that surrounds it. And it’s this understanding that’s empowering The Galaxy Electric to carve out their place in the new music industry. You’re going to love this discussion!
