Every musician looking for a sustainable career need to listen

I have been simultaneously running my own online marketing business my artist/music business for over 20 years. So I know some stuff. But I don’t know everything. I am always learning.

Wade’s straight talking, no nonsense approach to being in the modern music business is always helpful, practical, real world, honest and entertaining. Every musician needs to listen to this podcast the truth about what being in the business of music really means.

6 minutes is a great way to consume content in 'mouth size pieces'. I instantly listen to each episode as it is published but also revisit previous episodes as references as I continue to develop my music business/career: a process of continual development and improvement.
