A successful career in music doesn’t happen overnight. It takes patience, tenacity, an openness to critique, and even some failure to clarify your goals and make it happen.

To land a job in licensing, product design, or marketing at a place like Spotify or Apple, you’ll need to speak to the changes driving growth in the industry. Similarly, a successful artist manager should be up to speed on industry tastes and trends, emerging niche markets, and changing perceptions around artist commercial viability. Full story.
