Are you creating new ways of performing, teaching, and reaching your audience? Then you're my people.

My guests are bringing music into the 21st century and beyond. They're the people who understand that live music won't survive if it clings to business models from a previous century.

I created this podcast to help you to reinvent yourself and expand your own horizons. Take the information, mull it over, and come up with your own way to bring your art to the world. Because it's time to face the music.

Thanks for listening!

Sounds pretty good!
