    #28: Frank Woodworth - Founder, Glacial Concepts

    “Why is TikTok so popular?”

    “How do I make content for TikTok?”

    “What should I be focusing on right now as an artist or manager?”



    Frank Woodworth was my guest on the podcast this week. We first met several years back while playing basketball together at Basketball City in NYC. Since then, Frank has gone on to start a company called Glacial Concepts which focuses on consulting artists, labels, and tech companies on all areas of the music business.

    In this episode, Frank explains how he got his start in music, eventually getting an internship in which he had to travel 2.5hrs each way, to running an independent label to ultimately starting his own consulting business. Additionally, Frank gives his amazing insights into the mechanics of TikTok and how artists can set themselves up for success!

    “What team members should I have?”

    “What should I be focusing on during this pandemic?”

    “How can I make money now that live shows aren't an option at the moment?”



    This week I got the chance to speak with Amit Nerurkar, owner of the management company face-less. Amit and I met each other last summer at a conference that Symphonic put on in Brooklyn and since then I couldn't wait to have him on. We met up a few weeks after our initial encounter for coffee so I could pitch the idea of the podcast and he was more than willing to come on so I'm glad we were both finally able to make it happen!

    In this episode, we talked about Amit's transition from the finance world to the music business, cutting his teeth at Red Distribution, helping to run Mass Appeal, and putting out "Run The Jewels 2" with Killer Mike and El-P, to now running his management company.

    “How do I set myself up for placements in TV/film/video games/online content?”

    “Who are the Performing Rights Organizations and what do they do?”

    “How do I go about finding music supervisors?”



    Marat Berenstein was my guest on the podcast this week and I couldn't thank him enough for not only agreeing to come on the show but also to record on super short notice. So HUGE shout out to him. For those that don't know Marat, he's been in the music business since the early 2000s and has worked with some of the biggest names in music, across all genres. In this episode, Marat talks about his first gig working for Art Garfunkel, being one of the heads at the Clive Davis Institute at NYU, and advice for artists that are looking to get their music licensed, especially during these times.

    “What are the key streaming metrics I should be focused on?”

    “Is there a formula for planning a marketing campaign?”

Ryan and I have known each other since 2011 when we were working on digital marketing campaigns for Universal Motown. Since then, Ryan has gone on to work at some of the biggest labels like Capitol Records and RCA, helping break artists both big and small. In this episode, we talk about what his day to day looks like, what he thinks artists and managers should be doing when they're first starting to build their careers and finally some trends he potentially sees popping up!

    “What motivates you to keep going?”

    “How important is it to be patient?”

    “What's the one thing you would tell your younger self to focus on sooner?”



    NBHD Nick was the guest on the podcast this week. Nick and I have known each other for a long time and it was great to catch up with him to talk about the things he's learned as his career is starting to take off. From shows and merch sales to landing big song placements on social media with people and brands like Will Smith and the XFL, NBHD is setting himself up nicely to be able to be a truly independent artist!
