Live Music Industry
This week, Ari is joined by Raye Zaragoza, a DIY artist who is making waves with her new album, writing for Netflix shows, and has been recently cast as Tiger Lily in the Peter Pan National Tour.
I have been constantly amazed by just how many professions there are in the New Music Business other than merely recording artist and performing musician. Here are 27 jobs in the music industry.
This week on the New Music Business podcast, we are joined by Veteran booking agent Tom Windish. As Head of A&R and Business Development at Wasserman Music, Windish has developed the touring careers of some of the hottest names in music, including Billie Eilish, Lorde, alt-J and The xx. In this episode, Ari and Tom discuss the state of the live music industry, how booking agents operate, why tour buy-ins are unethical, the process of signing new artists, running a record label, and much more!
breaking down the current state of the touring landscape of both the micro and macro touring industry.
Joining us this week on the New Music Business is Kam Franklin, lead singer of the Houston-based soul band, The Suffers.
