With recent events keeping us all indoors and searching for ways to stay calm and sane, there’s never been a better time to check out podcasts! One that launched today that has us excited is “The New Music Business with Ari Herstand.”
Herstand is an independent musician and the best-selling author of How To Make It in the New Music Business, a book used in universities across the country. With the podcast, Herstand seeks to further educate his audience by sitting down with the brightest minds in the music industry to discuss tools, tactics, and strategies that listeners can use to run successful music careers of their own. The podcast promises listeners straight talk with no fluff!
“I’ve conducted hundreds of interviews over the years with the movers and shakers of the industry, but most of these conversations have been private – just for me to write about and pass along the information. But these conversations are always so fascinating, so I decided to bring people into the conversation and process.” said Ari Herstand, Host of “The New Music Business with Ari Herstand.”
Season 1 kicks off with an episode that was taped live at Barnes & Noble at The Grove during the book signing for the second edition of Herstand’s book. Multi-platinum winning artist, Andy Grammer, was on hand for a live interview discussing his songwriting process, fears, and persistence in the industry.
