Behind the Curtain

John gives his listeners a view into the inner workings of the music industry. His view of what really goes on in the industry and how to launch an indie career is invaluable for newer bands/ musicians. His guests pull from all areas of the industry and also provide valuable knowledge from those that have 'been there and done that'. This podcast is a great value to any musician looking to break into the modern music industry.

Just what I needed, when I needed it.

Mixing elements of entrepreneurial podcasts with practical real world advice, S&S is a must for today’s DIY musician. I feel like John is somehow in my head, answering the questions I have before I ask them.
