About Us

I’m a musician. Every time someone said to me, “you’ll never make money doing what you do,” I loved nothing more than saying “watch me.” Making it in the music business has never been more attainable, or open to interpretation. In this podcast, we’re finding ways that musicians can thrive.

Latest Episodes

The World is Your Oyster

EArison Cain is a prime example of a musician who’s created a life where they can thrive. In today’s episode, we discuss how getting creative with your merch can help you reframe the way you approach selling and making money from your music. We also discuss things like the “hopes and dreams” phase, and the way that learning skills not directly related to music can make your art more successful.

The World is Your Oyster

Lifting Up Musicians & Facilitating Dreams

ENate is an incredibly talented musician, and the kind of person that building a community comes easily to. Whether producing, playing in bands, co-writing songs, or any number of things a musician might need help with, he’s a powerful facilitator who can help you level up. In this episode we discuss the different ways you can build a community of musicians and other creative artists to support one another so that you can do the work you need to move your music forward, and you can help them in return. We talk about booking shows, and getting paid for them, and a little bit about what it’s like making a record.

Lifting Up Musicians & Facilitating Dreams

Facilitating a Successful Music Career

EGeoffrey Schulman once dreamed of being a great jazz saxophonist. To the delight of many musicians around the world, he ended up building a career around supporting musicians and their art. In this episode we talk about ways you can make money within the music industry, both on stage and behind the scenes. Geoffrey shares some perspective on the options for DIY musicians seeking the support of a label as well. There’s even a little something for anyone who might not be a musician, but who’s an avid music lover. If you like what you hear in the episode, do you know someone that you think would like it as well? Pass it on and spread the knowledge!
