Fresh stories of modern musicians taking on an ever-changing marketplace

Out of the gate, this fresh, positive, and engaging podcast explores music entrepreneurship in our modern era.
It is true that everyone has a story and this podcast fills a gap in the podcast medium and allows the listener to gain creative insight into how some wonderful musicians with great ideas have had success in the music field.
Kelly is our primary and truly passionate host. She has the true “it” factor you want in a host and in an influencer. I am looking to her future as she continues to develop this aspect of her career. Her joy and excitement for the guests and the subject of music is so evident to the listener. Isak is the co-founder of the podcast. When he appears on the show, he complements Kelly’s hosting in every way. He asks thoughtful questions from an outsiders perspective that really completes the story.
Wow, so far the folks interviewed have created amazing live’s in music and have adapted to some amazing challenges over the past couple of years.
Who knew the possibilities? … and I think that is a main point of this program.
The initial five podcasts have set a baseline for what to expect in the future. The program is positive, motivational, and filled with practical advice. I think it is perfect for this time and will challenge you to think about how you can meet your goals in an ever changing marketplace.

The other world of music

I have very much enjoyed hearing about the other world of music performance. I have had the same experiences as many of the guests through my 20+ years in a music classroom!
